Gospel choirs: out. Drum machines: in. Or at least that's the case with two high-profile covers of Sam Smith's runaway hit “Stay With Me.”
A couple days ago, FKA Twigs laid down her blue-hued version courtesy of BBC Radio 1 Live Lounge.
Then, Charli XCX swung by Portland”s 95.5 Bing Lounge, with a little more sass on the four-and. Listen to each below. Whose do you like better?
While we're keeping score, FKA Twigs has one of the best R&B/electronic albums this year, and Charli XCX made one of the best pop singles of 2014, “Boom Clap.”
