Speechless! This cover starts off as one thing and morphs into a whole OTHER thing AND I LOVE IT.
This is how you make a song your own!
Elli Ingram is obviously from the UK, and this further goes to prove my point that the international singers are doing American music better than the Americans. She truly flips this track into something that the original was not. She improves upon Kendrick Lamar’s “Poetic Justice”/Janet Jackson sample, makes it her own, expounds upon its R&B sensibilities, and just freaks the hell out of it.
I’d buy it. Right now.
She’s Adele + a brawler in a pub + some negroes + Alice Russell all thrown into a Bullet blender.
What do you think of Elli’s cover?
Shouts to @jamesjolly for the heads up on this! Nice find!
You can DL the song here if you love it as much as I do, too!
