Rapper Kanye West makes timeless music. One of his most enduring songs is the heartbreak anthem “Heartless.” Newcomer Post Malone covered the song for his appearance at BBC’s Live Lounge. Malone’s version is acoustic and brings every underlying emotion to the surface.
Post Malone strums his guitar and sings with a subtle passion. While he’s putting his feelings on display, he’s still hip-hop to the core. Watching the video, you can see flashes of his gold grill during the performance.
Covering the Kanye tune is a full circle moment because Malone first got noticed posting videos of himself playing Minecraft while singing Bob Dylan covers. He is also featured on Kanye West’s new song “Fade.”
