Lizzo just took her admiration for BTS to a whole new level by covering the band's latest hit "Butter" on BBC Radio 1's Live Lounge on Sept. 23. Coincidentally, BTS impressed us with their own Live Lounge performance just a few months ago. "I'm singing it around the house anyway, why not sing it on the live lounge," Lizzo told BBC Radio 1 presenter Charlie Hedges, ahead of her performance. "I'm a sucker for people who make positive music, and BTS does that. The word is falling in love with them because they are so sweet and pure, and they're good-hearted," she added. "I wanted to bring some more positivity into the world via their song. I hope we do it justice." And do it justice Lizzo absolutely did.

During her time in the Live Lounge, Lizzo also sang her latest track "Rumors" and brought Sasha Flute along for the ride — all in all, making it one incredible Live Lounge performance.

The full video drops this evening, but in the meantime, catch the audio of her Live Lounge here.
