B.o.B @ Radio 1’s Live Lounge

Bobby Ray Live Lounge

The Live Lounge seems to have a very decent set of artists dropping in over the next few weeks, and the first of these big names was B.o.B (aka Bobby Ray).

As his first UK single Nothin’ On You went straight to the number 1 spot last week, it was elementary that he would be doing a live version of it.

I’m 99.99% sure that the vocalist isn’t Bruno Mars, because frankly it’s not up to his standards. Although to be fair it does sound like the piano is out of key at the start of the performance which definitely threw him off. However, B.o.B rescued the potential car crash with a perfect delivery of his part of the song.

He then chose to cover MGMT’s indie anthem Kids, and it was an absolutely fantastic performance. On Kids B.o.B really displays his full range of talents, which are sometimes overlooked when he is merely described as a rapper.

A rapper with great vocals and the ability to play the guitar is a combination that is genuinely refreshing to see.
