Lorde has taken the world by storm with her infectious hit “Royals.” Even though her debut album, Pure Heroine, won’t be released until September 30th, the 16-year-old New Zealand native has been dubbed the new queen of alternative and opened up New Zealand’s iHeartRadio festival. During her set, she pulled out this cover of Kanye West‘s “Hold My Liquor.”

Lorde, AKA Ella Yelich-O’Connor, handles Chief Keef’s, Justin Vernon’s, and Yeezus’s parts equally well. Easily one of the darkest tracks of West’s hardest hitting album to date, Lorde matches the energy off the original track surprisingly well.
