Listen: Robyn covers Wham!’s ‘Last Christmas’

The Swedish pop star got in the festive spirit on BBC Radio I's Live Lounge

The holidays are just around the corner, and during her appearance on BBC Radio I’s Live Lounge on Tuesday, Robyn got in the festive spirit by covering Wham!’s classic holiday track, “Last Christmas.”
 


Robyn prefaced the track by telling host Clara Amfo, “Oh my god, [George Michael]’s my hero.” Her rendition is stripped back compared to the Swedish pop star’s usual songs, led by a tinny drum track and a simple piano line. The endearing track is pretty true to the original, with a distinctive Robyn twist.

You can listen to Robyn’s Radio I appearance here, and “Last Christmas” occurs around the 2:12:00 mark.
