“I just love this song. I love all Kanye. 808s & Heartbreakwas very inspirational to me,” she told host Annie Mac before playing her rendition. “I’m a huge Kid Cudi fan too and so I really just love all of the musicality of it and I loved how he was trying to do something different with his voice,” she continued. “And the heart in it. I thought it was really special.”
