Watch: Khalid's twist on Frank Ocean's 'Lost'

Khalid continues to wow us with a challenging Frank Ocean cover.

Khalid can do no wrong, and proves it by reworking a Frank Ocean jam.

In the short amount of time that 19-year-old Khalid has become a hip-hop supernova darling, he has exceeded expectations left and right. He continues this hot streak with a cover of Frank Ocean's "Lost."

Given the critical acclaim and general infrequency of Ocean projects, it's rare to hear a cover. Whether it's confidence or teenage audacity, Khalid stepped up to the challenge on Radio 1's Piano Sessions, performing a stellar new take on Ocean's 2012 track.

These sessions have lent themselves to quite the number of enjoyable covers this year that have re-imagined familiar favorites in some breathtaking ways. Among our favorites is Sampha's take on Drake's "Controlla" from last March.
