James Bay popped by BBC Radio 1's "Live Lounge" Tuesday (Mar. 3), and, as is tradition on the show, covered a song by another artist. James chose Rihanna, Kanye West, and Paul McCartney's "FourFiveSeconds," and he laid down a pretty solid rendition.
But it was missing something.
No, I'm not criticizing his vocals, which are appropriately frazzled and explosive per the song's theme. And no, I'm not calling out his song choice, which I think was actually a pretty good fit for him as a performer.
