[SONG] AlunaGeorge x ‘This Is How We Do It’ (Montell Jordan Cover)

On the heels of their hotly anticipated debut album ‘Body Music’ releasing stateside next week, UK electronica duo AlunaGeorge are definitely making bold moves musically. Their latest comes in the form of an odd (but prolific) cover of Montell Jordan’s #1 single “This Is How We Do It”. On their version, lead singer Aluna Francis stays very true to the original with her interpretation of Montell’s classic. In fact, the only lyric that the duo changed was the “you know London does it like nobody does” chorus. Their cover of “Do It” features a wealth of British grunge flavor and makes the song even more club-friendly. The other great parts of Montell’s hit single (especially including his most quoted line “if you’re an OG mack or a wannabe player”) remain intact – all from a female’s perspective. Producer George Reid laces the beat with an electro-synth rhythm that pays homage to the original as opposed to coming off as cheesy. AlunaGeorge’s cover of Montell’s hit is slated to appear on ‘Body Music’ with hopes of crossing the duo over into international territory. Judging from Aluna’s vocal performance alone, it seems like they’re well on their way. Listen and download AlunaGeorge’s cover of Montell Jordan’s “This Is How We Do It” below.
