Hi-Five: MØ Covers ‘Say You’ll Be There’, Major Lazer ft. Pharrell + More
MØ covers “Say You’ll Be There.”
MØ – Say You’ll Be There (Cover)
MØ, whose album No Mythologies to Follow just recently dropped, adds a fun twist to this Spice Girls throwback with modernized production and the decision to sing harmonies rather than the original melody. This one’s just for fun.
Major Lazer Ft. Pharrell – Aerosol Can
Diplo’s alter ego released his Apocalypse Soon EP in March, with this track as the lead single. After already attracting tons of Internet love, “Aerosol” is beginning to receive some radio play, likely jettisoning it further into the mainstream world.
Todd Terje – Johnny and Mary (feat. Bryan Ferry)
Having made a name for himself as the new voice in cocktail lounge and disco (with a quirky and imaginative touch), Todd Terje slows down with Bryan Ferry for this pensive cover of Robert Palmer’s “Johnny and Mary,” demonstrating a diversity that bodes well for the artist’s future.

Glass Animals – Gooey Rework feat. Chester Watson
Chester Watson raps over this track by “Glass Animals,” the British quartet known for their unmatched production skills. The Hip-Hop artist’s smooth lyrics glide well over the group’s signature pairing of thick base with inventive percussion.
Tove Lo – Habits
This one has been circulating the Internet for a while now, but deserves to make the list. Despite her having been described as Sweden’s answer to Ke$ha, Tove Lo’s despondent and intelligent lyrics set her apart from the glitter fiend, as well as other Scandinavian pop stars.
