FKA Twigs' Cover of Sia's "Elastic Heart" Will Completely Mesmerize You

The BBC Radio 1 Lounge Live has been the setting of many amazing cover songs. From Kelly Clarkson's jazzy rendition of Rihanna's "B**ch Better Have My Money" to Demi Lovato's "Take Me to Church" cover, it seems to be the place where singers allow their appreciation of other artists to shine through in the most creative ways.

Recently, singer FKA Twigs stopped by the lounge and performed an absolutely mesmerizing rendition of Sia's "Elastic Heart." The 27-year-old singer, who's known for her unique take on music and performing, made her special touch evident during her spin on Sia's emotional tune.

She begins the set with delicate, haunting vocals that beautifully mirror those of the original. Then she's joined by a background dancer who helps her transition into a subtle recreation of "Elastic Heart" video with interpretive choreography, which is an obvious nod to the intense interactions between Shia Labeouf and Maddie Ziegler in Sia's music video.

Fans of the "Glass and Patron" singer are already familiar with the singer's tendency to go far outside of the box. From wearing a quirky, penis-embellished gown to the MET Gala to her spellbinding video for "Pendulum," FKA Twigs is all about individuality and we absolutely love it.

The only thing left is Sia's official stamp of approval and an FKA Twigs collaboration, and all will be right in the world of music.
