On Tuesday, Sabrina Carpenter visited the BBC Radio 1 Live Lounge to perform a rendition of ‘Good Luck, Babe’ by her Island Records labelmate, Chappell Roan. The hit took off around the same time her own track, ‘Espresso,’ became the song of the summer.

In the video, Carpenter performed a stripped-back version of Roan’s track, adding a country twang to her pronunciation of the catchy lyrics: “You can say it’s just the way you are/Make a new excuse, another stupid reason.”

The new cover comes just a day after Carpenter spoke to Rolling Stone and revealed she had the Roan hit on ‘loopty loop’ and that she plays her music “all the time.”

Carpenter also performed her own track ‘Please Please Please’ during the BBC Radio 1 segment. (Just last month, Wallows delivered a cover of Carpenter’s ‘Espresso’ in the same Live Lounge.)

The pop singer is set to release her album Short n’ Sweet — the followup to her breakthrough LP, Emails I Can’t Send — in late August. The upcoming album’s two hit singles landed in the top three of the Billboard Hot 100 this week.

“I hope they find whatever they need to guide them through their life through my mistakes,” Carpenter told Rolling Stone about the music on the album. “Because I think the more open I am with my experiences, the more that other people are like, ‘Oh, maybe that’s OK that that happened to me. It’s not the end of the world.’”
