Banks is known for her seductive, at times darkly-tinged music, so it only makes sense that she covered The Weeknd (especially after having toured with him) for her BBC Radio 1 performance. Taking Abel Tesfaye’s single, “What You Need,” which appears on House of Balloons, Banks injects some feminine sensuality to the already overtly sexual song. It’s hard to listen to her sweetly sing and not feel like you’re in the midst of something that should be saved for the bedroom. Watch her cover The Weeknd above.
