Sam Sparro - Rock the Boat (Aaliyah cover)

Sam Sparro, the singer responsible for the once-free-on-iTunes single 'Black and Gold', has dropped a cover of Aaliyah's 'Rock the Boat'. Listening to the original song makes me really appreciate the nuanced sound she popularized, influencing many young singers today who are capitalizing on the appeal of it. The production in this cover includes the right amount of snares and trap flares, and while I'm usually on board with Sparro's silky smooth voice, I'm not quite sure if his voice fits. Regardless, I'm still jiving to it.
