There are two songs most college kids play again and again on their acoustic guitars (typically in dorms or the campus quad): Sublime’s “What I Got” and Jimi Hendrix’s “Little Wing”. Kudos then goes to Janelle Monáe for covering the latter and obliterating any past beer-washed memories from yesteryear. During last night’s gig in Papantla, Mexcio, the young superstar segued into the ’60s classic, injecting her trademark soul and feverish yelps. What was already a sexy song just became, well, sexier. No word on whether or not she’ll add a twist to Knowell’s past anthem. In the meantime, check out the cover below.
