Lykke Li covered Drake at her sold out London show on Thursday (13.11.14).

The 28-year-old singer performed a mystical set at the Eventim Apollo in Hammersmith, which included a heartbreaking rendition of Canadian rapper Drake's 2013 single 'Hold On, We're Going Home'.

The Swedish singer/songwriter played an extensive set of melancholy tracks from her third studio album 'Never Learn', including 'Sadness Is A Blessing', 'Never Gonna Love Again' and 'Sleeping Alone'.

Lykke released the album, which is drenched in misery, earlier this year, drawing inspiration from her split from her boyfriend which spurred a move from Europe to Los Angeles.

Despite the wallowing nature of her music, the enigmatic singer - who recently launched her own clothing range - was anything but motionless when performing the emotive tracks, treating the audience to energetic, wild dance moves, resulting in a brilliantly captivating show.

Performing at the packed out venue, Lykke appeared comfortable on stage, but in an interview with InStyle last month, she revealed that touring isn't something she's a particular fan of due to the relentless and repetitive nature of life on the road.

She said: "It's pretty rough to be on tour for years straight and not have a home and not have anywhere to rest. It creates a restlessness inside of you. It wears you out."

Sadness Is A Blessing
