Sampha puts a spin on Steve Lacy’s 'Bad Habit', and we're here for it.

Soulful British singer-songwriter Sampha recently delivered a stirring piano-driven rendition of Steve Lacy’s smash hit “Bad Habit” for BBC Radio 1’s Live Lounge. Stripping the upbeat, funk-infused song down to its core, Sampha turns “Bad Habit” into a brooding, passionate ballad with his smooth vocals and minimalist piano accompaniment. This stripped-back yet powerful cover demonstrates Sampha’s immense talent for transforming pop songs into heartfelt works of art.

The performance comes on the heels of Sampha’s latest album, Lahai, which explores themes of lineage, ancestry, and loss. He also performed the deeply personal “Only” from Lahai during his Live Lounge session. With his raw, emotional delivery and gift for reinvention, Sampha breathes new life into “Bad Habit,” proving once again that he is one of music's most captivating artists. This haunting rendition is not to be missed.
