Héloïse Letissier, the French singer-songwriter and producer behind Christine And The Queens, came out with a new album, Chris, back in September. Now, she’s back with her rendition of Sade’s classic “No Ordinary Love.”
Letissier’s version updates the original’s soulful R&B with fractured bass and sharp production. Sade broke her seven-year hiatus earlier this year with a new single. Christine And The Queens’ excellent homage underscores Sade’s legacy and solidifies Letissier’s unique pop perspective.
Amber Mark dropped new EP ‘Conexão’ today and has released the video for EP track ‘Love Is Stronger Than Pride’ alongside it. Shot in one take on location in New York, the video shows Amber roaming the streets of her hometown at nightfall, with post-production adding some lush kaleidoscopic effects.
Mark wrote Sade a letter asking for permission to include a cover of “Love Is Stronger Than Pride” on Conexão – not only did Sade say yes, she’s now a major fan.
Cosima is the music newcomer who is the muse of the week according to La Musa. The 23-year-old born in Peckham, South-east London has created a buzz on the underground pop scene for some time now, with two tracks featured on Fader, The Beat and ID magazine. Her alternative, electronic pop music is reminiscent of ‘80s icon Sade (but up-tempo and super current).
