Would I be posting this if it wasn’t a Prince song, maybe not but it’s always interesting to hear another artist’s interpretation of his work. This is ok, it’s pretty good, well mainly average. Kinda strips away the soul & funkiness from the original and comes across as sounding like an XX track being produced by Nile Rodgers, which ain’t no bad thing.
“Fenech Soler have spent the last nine weeks stateside, holding down a weekly residency at The Echo in Los Angeles and during their time there, they’ve been playing out a cover that’s been raising some eyebrows for all the right reasons.
We’ve all heard ‘I Wanna Be Your Lover’ by Prince but you probably won’t have heard the Fenech Soler version that effortlessly swaps the guitar licks for glitzy synths and mischievous bass-riffs. We’re really feeling this and the guys have given us the track as a free download.”
