The American artist Janelle Monae recently recorded a cover for one of her favorite songs from David Bowie, Heroes. Speaking about it, the artist says that:
Bowie is part of my musical DNA in so many ways…And ‘Heroes’ is one of my favorite Bowie songs. When you love your favorite song, you want to keep some of the beautiful qualities of the original, but we brought Atlanta in the drums and wanted them to be thick and hit hard. [The cover] is like us reimagining it. I thought, ‘If this song was in my dream, how would it get from our dream to my reality?
It seems that the song was actually recorded for the new Pepsi ad campaign Now Is What You Make It. You can check out the commercial here.
Also recently it was announced that Janelle in collaboration with MIA will join their forces to launch the new Audi A3. Both artists will perform a live duet as holograms.
Enjoy the song below!
