Along with attending various in Sydney, I was also introduced to a few new names in music and fashion. As mentioned on my Facebook page, expect to read some write-ups on those names soon.
Until you read the others, here’s the first.
Considering the original was released from Kendrick’s 2012 album “good kid, m.A.A.d city”, this cover is a more than a few months old, but I think it’s one that everyone needs to hear.
What a voice.
Switching up Kendrick’s verses and adding her own spin on them, Elli Ingram hails from Brighton, England and has honed her talents from a very young age. Inspired by the likes of Amy Winehouse and Lauryn Hill, it’s pretty evident to see that the vocalist has incorporated those influences into her soulful, R&B flair.
Produced by Felix Joseph and Rudi Redz, Ingram’s cover manages to take both Kendrick’s and Drake’s verses and pours endless emotion into an already emotion-filled song. This tune calls for multiple-playback.
I can’t decide if I like the original or the cover better!
Which version do you prefer?
