Lizzo recently performed a cover of Sam Smith and Kim Petras‘ smash hit “Unholy” during an appearance on BBC Radio 1‘s Live Lounge.
Lizzo put her own sultry spin to the song as she was backed by a live band comprised of bass, drums, guitar, keys, and three backup singers. During the same set, she also played her own hit, “Special,” the title track from her 2022 album.
Special was nominated for several awards at the 2023 Grammys, including Album of the Year.
“Unholy” was released on September 22, 2022, as the second single from Smith’s fourth studio album Gloria.
“Unholy” became both Smith’s and Petras’ first chart topper on the Billboard Hot 100. The song won the award for Best Pop Duo/Group Performance at the 65th Annual Grammy Awards, marking Smith’s first win since 2015 and Petras’s first.
Smith and Petras performed their Grammy-winning song at this year’s awards ceremony on February 5 and then again at the 2023 Brit Awards on February 11.
