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.
