Lorde fans in Chicago were given an extra-special treat last night as the New Zealander brought her ‘Melodrama’ tour to the Windy City. Paying homage to one of the world’s most famous Chicagoans, Lorde delivered not one, but two Kanye West covers, kicking things off with an a capella rendition of “Love Lockdown” before incorporating “Runaway” into her own song “Liability.” Watch fan footage of both numbers below.
Lorde’s last album was 2017’s Melodrama, a record that we named the third best album of the year. Meanwhile, all evidence seems to indicate Kanye is at work on the followup to his 2016 album The Life of Pablo.
