Holy Shit: Miguel Covers Elton John's "Bennie and the Jets"


This is happening - Elton John's reissuing his now-classic album Goodbye Yellow Brick Road with a whole b-side CD of covers by contemporary artists, and you had best prepare yourself accordingly for our first taste, Miguel's cover of "Bennie and the Jets." It's basically exactly how you'd imagine a Miguel cover of "Bennie and the Jets" to sound - smoldering and soulful, with plenty of falsetto and a sexed-up backbeat - except for that surprise rap verse from Wale, which will literally make you do a double take. Check it out - you can grab the Super Deluxe edition March 25.
