US entertainment network E! have unveiled two covers of Robert Palmer’s 80’s classic Simply Irresistible for the station’s coverage of this evening’s Oscar Academy Awards.
The two covers, led by Janelle Monae and Charli XCX, both take completely different spins on the original. Whilst Monae adds her trademark funk to the track, Charli XCX goes down the pop/rock route, adding more hyperactive tones that stress the sheer fun of the original. Both work exceedingly well but for completely different reasons.
