Banks - "What You Need" (The Weeknd cover)


Most of us discovered the L.A. songstress Banks when she opened for the Weeknd on his Kiss Land tour this year, so it makes sense that she covered his House of Balloons jam "What You Need" in a recent session for the BBC. It's an excellent cover - Banks and company let guitars take the place of the Weeknd's customary eerie synth drones, and her lush, seductive vocals just might, dare we say, rival the Weeknd at his own game. Check it out.
