Singer-songwriter Sevyn Streeter is burning up clubs and Urban radio alike with her debut solo single ‘I Like It’. The first from a host of R&B bangers the former Richgirl is crafting for her yet-titled solo LP, the tune has been winning her a host of new fans since its unveiling a few months ago.
Undoubtedly hoping to keep such buzz afloat, the soaring songstress has taken to her Youtube to share acoustic covers of some of her favorite songs. As today’s entry sees Miss Streeter take to task Aaliyah‘s ‘I Care 4 U’ reared radio hit ‘Come Over’, tuck in below to tell us if she did it justice:
We like it (no punt intended)! Impressive to say the least. Fans have long known of Streeter’s pipes, but it helps – when surrounded by an abundance of fluff – to reaffirm one’s ability. Of course, some will say that Streeter’s powerful performance, with its melismatic modifications, detract from the softness of the original as Aaliyah’s signature falsetto coo did give the song a character that is hard to replicate.
Be that as it may, Streeter definitely put her stamp on this Tank-penned number! We look for more from her as we are sure with her beauty and dance skills in tow, she has many brighter days.
