Angel Haze Creatively Covers ‘Drunk in Love’ for BBC’s 1Xtra Live Lounge [VIDEO]

Beyonce and Jay Z started off the Grammy Awards ceremony last night (Jan. 26) with ‘Drunk in Love’ in all of its raunchy, censored glory. Angel Haze covered that same tune overseas, and she toned down the overt sexuality to opt for some creativity during her performance at BBC’s 1Xtra Live Lounge.

Backed by a live band and a backup singer, Haze performed the song with some of her trademark wittiness. The New York-based rapper switched up lyrics to lines like, “Then I fill the tub up halfway, then ride it with my skateboard, surfboard, Tom Ford.” Because why try to top “surfbort?” The band interpolates some other instrumentals to the ‘Drunk in Love’ beat for extra flavor. This includes the drums from Jay Z’s ‘Tom Ford.’

Haze looks like she’s still keeping on despite the disappointing sales of her debut album ‘Dirty Gold,’ which sold less than 1,000 copies in its debut week. The hype surrounding Beyonce’s surprise self-titled album, which arrived around the release date (Dec. 30) for ‘Dirty Gold,’ certainly didn’t help matters.
