After a brief rest on the bench, this week sees the return of That Grape Juice Cover Star. Helping kick things off is folk popstress Jenna Andrews lending a Colbie Caillat-esque twist to Aaliyah‘s blazing 1996 groove ‘Hot Like Fire’.
Given the thump of the (Timbaland) single mix, this acoustic set comes as a surprisingly pleasant perspective. Definitely left field – but not so much so that the song becomes unrecognizable – Andrews stamps the song as her own while still carrying it with a softness reminiscent of its original performer. Doesn’t hurt that Jenna’s easy on the eyes.
