[SONG] Azealia Banks x ‘Barely Legal’ (The Strokes Cover)

azealia_barelylegal

Azealia Banks is no stranger to covers, but her latest rendition of NYC’s The Strokes’ hit “Barely Legal” is the most positive direction her career’s gone in months. Taking a sultry approach to the Julian Casablancas-written album track, Azealia showcases her true vocalist intentions. The lyrics “I just wanna misbehave, I just wanna be your slave” are sung with a level of artistry that’s classically trained, making Azealia’s vocals give current pop sweethearts a run for their money. It’s her rich vocal register here that sells the relatively unknown rock track, and it’s done as if it were worth a million dollars. Banks turns a song about maturity and innocence into a hit, dropping it at perfect timing to coincide with her upcoming album ‘Broke With Expensive Taste’. I gotta admit, Azealia’s #fauxbritish accent, which magically appears when she sings, is a true gift in a world of originality. She may not have the best vocal around, but it’s interesting enough to keep you wanting more. Listen and download Azealia’s cover of “Barely Legal” below.
