Jesse Boykins III - Young & Beautiful

Posted 2 years ago
Producer:
Ango
Album:
P.O.P [purpose or people] EP

If you caught the recent cinematic adaptation of The Great Gatsby, then you have heard Lana Del Rey’s Young & Beautiful about 5,000 times. Seriously, the song was beaten to death. Here to bring it back to life is Jesse Boykins III, who takes a crack at it on a standout selection off his newly-released covers EP. Those who liked the original but grew tired of its drowsy vibe will love the subtle touches the Chicago native adds to his cover. For example, Boykins’ version hits harder because you can feel the energy he pours into his vocal performance. Despite the differences, however, his rendition retains the original’s poignant, heartfelt vibe. Those moved by Young & Beautiful should be sure to check out the artist’s P.O.P [purpose or people] EP, out now.
