BBC Radio 1 Live Lounge | 8tracks Playlist

Hey Guys!

I am a firm advocate for the app 8tracks. I am constantly on it listening to playlists as well as making playlists myself and today I am going to share another of those playlists.

In my opinion a musician has made it in the UK if they are invited onto BBC Radio 1's Live Lounge. I mean it is such a well known show that American artists know that once they have been on that they have officially made it.

If you are not familiar with the Live Lounge basically it is a studio where artists perform completely live hence the name. They usually perform their current single and then perform a cover of another popular song at the moment.

That is what this playlist is all about, those covers.

I plan to add to this playlist over time so I hope you enjoy it! If you can to listen here.
