It’s no surprise Taylor Swift’s return to music means a return to copious award show nominations. “Look What You Made Me Do” and “…Ready For It?” may be the only two songs she’s put out in 2017, but Taylor still found a way to lead the pack in nods at the 2017 MTV EMAs. With nominations in six categories, Taylor could go home with a lot of hardware–if she shows up.

Lorde was the latest guest to stop by BBC Radio 1’s Live Lounge. Her appearance was part of the station’s 50th anniversary so, for her performance, she opted to cover a “classic British song” in celebration along with her own “Green Light.” Lorde took on Phil Collins’ iconic “In the Air Tonight” and stayed very true to the original 1981 version.
“It wasn’t until I got older that I really realized how magical he was and went through this crazy journey of all the Genesis stuff and all his own records,” Lorde said of Collins ahead of the performance. “He’s such a pioneer—his melodies and his drums—and I’m so inspired by him and he pushes me to be better.”

The first add-on to the track comes from neo-soul phenom SZA, who appears to be getting one step closer to her dream of performing with Normani Kordei. That’s because one of the other artists joining the remix is the prom king to Normani’s prom queen, Khalid. And because the world can’t just have nice things, Justin Bieber’s rapper pal Post Malone is also on the track.
The unexpected combo of artists makes for a memorable remix if nothing else.
