Katy B Did A Tinashe And Beyoncé Mash-Up And The Slayage Is Real
As if Katy B wasn’t already on my good side with her ***flawless sophomore record Little Red (which just debuted at #1 in the UK — rightfully so), the UK dance diva just went ahead and turned in some serious extra credit.
In a special performance for Rinse FM’s Rinse Sessions, Katy performed — wait for it — my queen Tinashe‘s Black Water mixtape track “Vulnerable” (WHAT?!) and Beyoncé‘s BEYONCÉ bathtub banga “Drunk In Love” as a special medley.
Do you know what that means? This is all of the things I like in one thing. I just talked about Katy B and Tinashe in the same video two weeks ago. Incredible.
To one’s surprise in particular, Katy’s vocals are utterly bananas throughout, especially as she starts to really belt it out to those luscious “Drunk In Love” runs at the very end. What stunning delivery! I might be biased, but I’m pretty confident that this is one of the best “Drunk In Love” covers out there right now. And then that Tinashe love out of nowhere? I could truly cry. #Blessed.
‘Little Red’ was released on February 7. (iTunes)
