    Lykke Li "Can I Kick It?" — A Tribe Called Quest Cover

    Unlike many indie rock performers who seem to view their rap and hip-hop counterparts with a sort of stand-offish gleeful irony, Lykke Li is 100% in. She dances and sways to the signature loop, re-created by her live band, with the same fervor and intensity that she inhabits her own music with. There isn't a trace of humor, nor even a smile here as the Swedish singer covers A Tribe Called Quest's classic. Lykke is dead serious about kicking it and her refreshing frankness just deepens our love for her.
