R&B Newcomer Elli Ingram from Brighton smashes her way on to the scene with this bold cover version of popular Hip Hop head nodder by west coast rapper of the moment Kendrick Lamar.
Starting of at a relatively casual pace over a Jazzy piano and double bass Elli lulls you in to a false sense of security of exactly where she is going with this, before swiftly ratcheting up the flows and getting your head nodding. At moments I find myself questioning whether she is an MC masquerading as a singer or a singer masquerading as an MC as her style appears to be a subtle blend of both.
With a voice to be reckoned with Elli blends her Jazzy flows with smooth R&B and double time flows in the vein of Ed Sheeran. She delivers all this in a style that clearly echoes the sound of a generation. I would even go as far as to say I prefer this to the original.
