On Saturday afternoon, FKA Twigs stopped by BBC Radio 1 "Live Lounge" for an interview and performance session. In addition to covering LP1 highlight "Two Weeks", the songstress covered Sam Smith’s choral smash "Stay With Me".

Of her decision to cover Sam Smith, she said:

"I'm covering Sam Smith's 'Stay With Me'. ... There was one line which basically alludes to saying, 'I'm not in love with you and maybe this isn't a serious thing, but it's perfect for right now and it's what I need emotionally right now,' and maybe that's just something that I have related to."

Listen to the entire segment here; twigs is interviewed at the 1:11:45 mark, does "Two Weeks" at 1:40:00, and covers Smith at 1:48:50.
