Taylor Swift covers Eminem's 'Lose Yourself' - listen

The pop star performed the 2002 rap track on US radio

Taylor Swift has covered Eminem's 'Lose Yourself' for a US radio station.

Click above to listen to the pop star's unlikely performance of the 2002 rap single, the original of which featured on the soundtrack to 8 Mile. Swift performed over a minute of the song on The Danger Show on Pittsburgh's Froggy Radio earlier this week accompanied by an acoustic guitar, reports gossip blogger Perez Hilton.

Eminem's 'The Marshall Mathers LP 2' has topped this week's Official Record Store Chart. The album, which is also Number One in the Official Albums Chart, beat off competition from last week's Number One album, Arcade Fire's 'Reflektor', and Midlake's 'Antiphon' to land the top spot. The Official Record Store Chart reflects sales in the UK's independent record shops. It was launched as part of last year's Record Store Day, the annual celebration of independent record shops.

Meanwhile, Taylor Swift is set to perform live at Kensington Palace at a charity concert arranged by Prince William alongside Bon Jovi and James Blunt later this month, in order to raise funds for the Centrepoint charity. The Centrepoint Winter Whites Gala will take place November 26 with Eliza Doolittle completing the line-up. Jon Bon Jovi will be honoured on the night for his own charity work while young people from the charity will perform with the street dance group Flawless.
