AKUA DANDY -Basma Chidiac_low_550

Our favorite Canadian songstress, A K U A, teams up with Rookie for a cover of “Nothing Compares 2 U.” Taking an ambient and minimal approach, the track is available as a free download for 24 hours, so go grab it.

Since last month’s release of her debut EP, One’s Company, A K U A has been grabbing the attention of listeners worldwide. A couple weeks ago, she opened for Solange in Montreal. The vibe was right, and she is now joining Solange on the road as a backup singer. The first gig was Pitchfork Music Festival last weekend. Atta girl, A K U A.

Makes us want to wind our hips and lasso something around with our bad selves.

And there is already talk of other tracks getting covered before the album event hits the stores.
