Watch The xx Cover Drake and Rihanna's "Too Good"
Published Jan 13, 2017The xx dropped their brand new album I See You today (January 13) and celebrated with a trip to the BBC Radio 1 studio. While there, the three-piece stepped into the Live Lounge to deliver a cover tune.
Looking across the Atlantic for inspiration, they opted to take on Drake's (pre-J. Lo) collaboration with Rihanna, "Too Good." The cut originally appeared on VIEWS, but The xx's version turns it into an even moodier — though, admittedly less danceable — affair.
Listen to it here at the 2:15:00 mark.
UPDATE (1/13, 3 p.m. EST): Video footage from the performance is now available. Watch The xx's Drake cover, as well as a live rendition of their own "On Hold" down below.
