COVER! BELL - Are You That Somebody (Aaliyah Cover) @bellinspace

Oh I'm so in two minds about this cover of Aaliyah - Are That Somebody by American singer BELL. I came across this track via another blog and it just caught my attention straight away. The new furtistic, under water space party instrumental is so refreshing and really revives the song but then agaiiiiiiiiiiiiin the orginial is so musically one point that in many ways that song really cant be touched which also makes it very hard to appreciate it in its entirety. 


The use of autotune also puts a different spefic on the cover and really makes me think, I wonder what Aaliyah's music would be like now if she was still with us. Hm. Everytime I listen to this I'm liking it more and maybe its not right to compare it to the orginial? It kind of loses the fresh feeling of the track. Hm. Hm.....indeed.


What do you think?
