4 Covers you should probably listen to right now


I didn’t subscribe to the hype coming from the Jessie Ware camp, but I’m converted. Ware’s take on Rihanna’s global hit remind me of that scene in “Romeo and Juliet” when the starry-eyed lovers steal glances from each other from across a rather large fish tank. I’m completely smitten. The xx put their stamp on the melancholic Beyonce/Frank Ocean penned track for those of you spending today in solitude. Fleetwood Mac’s timeless track “Everywhere” got the chill-wave makeover by Selebrities and Purity Ring did their thing on Soulja Boy’s “Grammy.”
