Covers R&B

COVER: BANKS – Are You That Somebody (Aaliyah cover)

artworks-000074032223-pk3l9h-t500x500Many covers of Aaliyah’s eternal “Are You That Somebody” have been attempted over the years, but I think BANKS just lapped all of them. This sparse rendition shines with BANKS’ sultry vocals, adjustable flow (glad she took on Timbo’s part too) and the acoustic guitar backing is a nice change from her typically dark R&B fare. Stream “Are You That Somebody” below from BBC1’s Live Lounge.
