Purity Ring was one of the highlights of 2012. The duo’s debut album “Shrine” made it to our list of The Best Albums of 2012. We loved their creative mixture of hip-hop, electro and pop music on the record; so it comes as no surprise to us that they chose to cover a hip-pop artist.
The surprising (and completely random) part is that they chose to cover Soulja Boy’s 2010, “Grammy” (featuring Ester Dean). Although, it all kinda came together when I read that the duo released the song hours after the
dreadful Grammys was aired.
Check out the duo’s awesome cover. Lead singer Megan James takes on both, Soulja Boy’s rap and Ester Dean’s vocal parts resulting in a brilliant Rihanna-esque pop tune.
