At one point early last year, it appeared that Florence Welch would have a heavy presence on Drake’s sophomore LP, Take Care. While the two unlikely bedfellows never did record together, Florence and the Machine recently offered a glimpse at what could have been with a cover of the album’s Rihanna-aided title track. Of course, Drake’s “Take Care” samples the Jamie xx-produced remix of Gil Scott Heron’s “I’ll Take Care of You”, so you’re basically getting a song in its fourth incarnation. Watch the video replay below, taken from Flo and Co.’s Friday appearance on BBC Radio 1’s Live Lounge. (via Disco Naivete).
