Be[a]st Covers (Kelis, Shakira and Melanie Fiona)
Oh yum, yum, yum. While it's just about lunchtime here in Beastonia, we thought it fitting to dish out some tasty treats to all of you as well. Grab a plate and fork, and let's gobble up some goodies.
Shakira re-invisions The xx's Islands. Her take is called Explore, and she fiddles with her own lyrics, but the melody remains the same. Nothing but love for ol' Shaki in the minute long preview clip.
Kelis doing La Roux's In For the Kill? Yes, please and thank you. Almost kind of wish this was her song to begin with, because her husky vocals fit this acoustic version like a glove. Then again, maybe its because I'm also in a major love-fest with her new album, Flesh Tone. Read TLC Blog's review of the album here.
In Billboard's latest musical mashup series, Melanie Fiona tackles Sam Cooke's Cupid. Get ready for some super smooth sounds, from her mouth to your ears.
