Covering ’90s R&B acts feels like a bit of a cliché at this point in the ’90s nostalgia wave, but we can’t fault it when the cover is as brilliant as BANKS’ take on the Aaliyah classic, “Are You That Somebody?”.

We’re used to hearing BANKS’ voice all ghostly and subdued on various indie urban tunes, but here flexes her vocal muscles whilst channelling the sultry sexuality of Aaliyah. It’s equal parts sensual and melancholy, just like much of Aaliyah’s music was.

Take a listen below.
