This week’s Fave Cover Friday is a bit of a throwback too. Most of us reading this were probably just babies/ toddlers when the song, “Are You That Somebody” by the late singer Aaliyah first came out in June 1998. Nonetheless it’s a really melodic, and relatable song.
BANKS, an up and coming artist, covered this song in early 2014 on BBC radio. This artist put her own spin on the song and did an acoustic cover while also slowing down the tempo and taking out the background vocals the original song had.
Which one do you prefer?
