English singer-songwriter Craig David was the next artist on the list to tackle Justin Bieber’s latest single, Love Yourself. And he slayed.
Ever since Purpose dropped, Love Yourself, the song co-penned by Ed Sheeran, has been a fan favourite and many have rushed perform their own versions of the song, including hometown hero Alessia Cara.
We gushed over her version, but Craig David truly transforms the track at his BBC Live Lounge performance. He took JB’s song, sped it up, and even added an improvised rap verse toward the end.
The video has since gone viral, racking up over 850,000 views since it was posted last night. Check out his cover below!
