Cover Star: Alayna, Stephani, & B.Dot Deliver ‘Q.U.E.E.N’ Cover (Janelle Monae/Erykah Badu)

This week’s That Grape Juice Cover Star moves in from Memphis trio Alayna, Stephani, and B.Dot. Watch as the US natives cover ‘Q.U.E.E.N.’ – the latest Erykah Badu-assisted hit from the uber-talented/eccentric performer Janelle Monae:

Start at 1:15:

Did they do that or what?

Indeed, to take on and do justice to a track with the “divatude” of diva duo Monae and Badu, skill and confidence are just the beginning of qualities one must possess.  Multiplied by three, Alayna, Stephani, and B. Dot delivered that and then some.

The jazzy undertones of each lady’s solo style was only complemented by their joint harmonic offerings.  Never doing too much to overshadow one another, each songstress brought her own brand of vocal prowess to the mix – weaving together a noteworthy performance!

We give it two thumbs up! Do you?

TGJ Replay: Erykah Badu’s ‘Baduizm’

3baa326b2f0f24f83cd7c05b094d2ca6 TGJ Replay:  Erykah Badus Baduizm

Much like our ‘Retro Rewind’ and ‘From the Vault’ segments, readers of That Grape Juice know what avid music lovers we are – especially of hits past.  So in a quest to re-spin the gems and jams of yesterday we introduced a new retrospective segment – ‘TGJ Replay’.

Unlike its ‘Rewind’ and ‘Vault’ predecessors, ‘Replay’ looks to dust off and showcase albums (and eras) from a library of pop music hits.  With the album many attribute to the popularization of the late 90s neo-soul movement, this week’s ‘Replay’ revisits Erykah Badu‘s prized debut album ‘Baduizm’.
