Watch Lorde’s Soulful, Surprising Cover of ‘Don’t Tell ‘Em’

You probably know Jeremih as the “Birthday Sex” guy, but his latest hit is “Don’t Tell ‘Em” — and we now know Lorde is a big fan of that track.

The “Royals” singer covered the R&B hit for BBC Radio’s Live Lounge this week, explaining, “I have basically been a really big fan of this song since I first started hearing it around … It’s quite a saucy song or something, and I think it would be interesting to flip the dynamic and make that power mine.”

The New Zealander, who turned 18 last week and was recently named one of TIME’s most influential teens of the year, certainly surprised us with this choice. The fact that she totally killed it, however, did not surprise us at all.
