I’ma try to swim from something…bigger than me (#MusicMonday)

Continuing my cover phase, let’s go with two new artists. Frank Ocean is an anomaly: he’s a good R&B singer with abstract and speculative leanings. And he’s bisexual. His song “Swim Good” is just a scratch on the surface of a gold mine. But what a scratch. And it’s got a vivid video to match, which is why I chose it for this Music Monday.

Rita Ora is a Yugoslavian (Kosovan) R&B singer who hails from the UK and has been signed to Jay-Z’s label. She’s got a voice; she’s gorgeous and she’s pretty likable. And she covered “Swim Good.” And it’s different, but equally good.

 

This is one of those songs I could have fun with writing to. Maybe I will…
