While her initial cover was a bop of a record that combined a seductive delivery with energetic production, the unplugged version is highlighted by Janine’s pure, breezy vocals weaving throughout the withdrawn instrumentation. Riding the light vibes of the sonic backdrop, Janine is able to truly showcase the soulful, powerful and enchanting essence of her voice. Thanks to some clever rewriting of various lyrics over the course of “WOW”, Janine takes Post’s original and makes it a track all her own.
Janine’s latest project, 99, is available now on all major streaming platforms. Keep your fingers crossed that we’ll be on the receiving end of more new music – covers or originals – as the year progresses.
