It’s a gorgeous version…Lil Nas X opted to cover Dolly Parton’s ‘Jolene’ for Radio 1’s Live Lounge.
The record-shattering American star released his debut album ‘MONTERO’ into the world only last week, earning international plaudits in the process.
Hitting Radio 1 staple Live Lounge, he was invited – as it tradition – to perform a cover.
So, he opted to something country (naturally) by one of its greatest stars – Dolly Parton’s immortal single ‘Jolene’.
A slowed down rendition, it showcases his vocal chops, a completely earnest take that goes straight for the tortured heart of the lyric.
Simple and hugely effective, you can tune in below.
