Purity Ring - Grammy Soulja Boy Cover

I thought that the biggest head-scratcher of the day would go to Beck and his enormous cover of “Sound And Vision” but I believe the honor goes to Purity Ring for their rendition of Soulja Boy’s “Grammy” — bonus points for such a timely release. The one-off applies the band’s ambient pop to Soulja’s original and Megan James pantomimes his verses as naturally as possible, but it’s hard not to get stuck on certain words like “trick” and “droptop” which sound so out of place. It works for the most part, though, and when it comes to pop groups covering rap, anything is better than this. Check it out below.
