Alex Isley is doing us all a favor and shining her light on some of Pharrell Williams and Chad Hugo’s greatest work. While her original material is unmatched, Isley always manages to execute covers and mashups effortlessly. This week she is sharing her take on 702’s 2003 gem “I Still Love You” mixed with “Run To the Sun” by N.E.R.D. Stripping both songs of their original production and arranging her own brand new bed of music, Alex shows off her many skills and brings new life to these jams that are now over a decade old.
Her light and sweet vocals along with the sound of her production often leads me to believe that she would fit in easily as the fourth member of everybody’s favorite soul sister troupe KING. If you love this songbird’s voice and are interested in hearing more of her finessing some of your favorite songs, check her out on Instagram as she has launched what she’s calling “#15SecThursday” where she takes requests and briefly performs covers for her followers every Thursday.
