While there, he appeared on the radio station’s Like a Version series. Gambino performed an interesting song: Garth Brooks’ “Lost in You” track, a song made during the country star’s infamous Chris Gaines period. The original song consisted of just an acoustic guitar.

In Gambino’s version, he is joined by a choir and a woman on the electric piano — giving the song a nice gospel twist.
