Alessia Cara has been known to cover Frank Ocean songs a lot. She’s already covered “Ivy” from Blonde this year, but she really has an affinity for what she calls “classic” Frank Ocean: Last month she covered “Swim Good” from Nostalgia, Ultra, and today she did Channel Orange’s “Super Rich Kids” on Annie Mac’s BBC Radio 1 show. Along with her band she adds a poppy flavor to Ocean’s more R&B-oriented original before taking it in a jazzy direction. To her credit, Cara even did Earl Sweatshirt’s tongue-twisting guest verse even if it does sound a little doofy. Check it out at the 22:09 mark below.
Cara also did “Scars To Your Beautiful” (3:50) and “River Of Tears” (11:39) from her debut LP Know-It-All.
