Janelle Monáe Releases Bob Marley Cover For ‘Spotify Singles’ Series [Listen]

first_imgJanelle Monáe is the latest pop artist to stop by the Spotify studios to perform some music for the streaming platform’s Spotify Singles series. The well-known singer and songwriter has kept a busy schedule full of similar appearances over the past year in promotion of her 2018 Dirty Computer studio album. For her turn on the audio streaming series, Monáe performed “I Like That” from her album, in addition to providing a spin on Bob Marley & The Wailer‘s “High Tide or Low Tide” from the reggae band’s 1973 album, Catch A Fire.Monáe’s new version of the reggae classic sticks pretty close to the original, although hers does shine a little clearer thanks to the modern recording technology used to capture what is a flawless performance. Her voice can be heard standing firmly above the held-out chords of an organ while she sings Marley’s love-soaked lyrics, “In high seas or in low seas/I’m gonna be your friend/In high tide or in low tide/I’ll be by your side.” Fans can have fun comparing her sparkling new version of the Bob Marley deep cut with his original recording heard below.Bob Marley & The Wailers – “High Tide or Low Tide”[Video: TheBognekRasta]Janelle Monáe wrapped up her busy world tour schedule in support of Dirty Computer back in September, following notable performances at big events including New York’s philanthropic Global Citizen Festival, Philadelphia’s Made in America Fest, Florida’s Suwanee Hulaween, and Austin City Limits Festival. Monáe had also shared a 46-minute sci-fi/fantasy narrative film to go with her album upon its release back in late April, which has also be lauded as nothing short of a “masterpiece,” according to Rolling Stone.The acting side of Monáe’s career also continues to thrive, as the next feature film she’s set to appear in titled Welcome to Marwen is scheduled to arrive on December 21st, and co-stars Steve Carell, Leslie Mann and Diane Kruger. Monáe will also appear in Disney’s live-action remake of its 1955 classic animated film, Lady and the Tramp.<span data-mce-type=”bookmark” style=”display: inline-block; width: 0px; overflow: hidden; line-height: 0;” class=”mce_SELRES_start”></span>[H/T Consequence of Sound]last_img read more
