I’ve had my eye on this gorgeous West London Singer-Songwriter since coming across her mid last year via one of Gilles Peterson’s Worldwide podcasts.

Here, she’s chopped up Massive Attack’s Paradise Circus and laid on it her own exquisite vocal arrangement of the Corrs’ What Can I Do.

Nothing, it seems, but play it over and over again.

Get Obenewa’s EP Once Upon a Time here.

Check out her official website too.

    Great cover, definitely took the darker lyrics in the chorus and made them into a slow, mysterious reality. Rare to hear a Corrs cover !
