Remember that song by Britney Spears called Toxic?
Well, believe it or not, it came out over 10 years ago! It came out in 2004!
I’m sure a hell of a lot of you remember the video… Britney Spears in her prime years, wearing a racy blue stewardess outfit, red hair and a black latex catsuit and a transparent outfit with rhine stones, yes, after that explanation, you have to know what video I’m talking about! (And if not, here it is below).
Random fact: Toxic is Britney’s most expensive video to date, it cost $1 million dollars!!! (Back in 2004).
What I want to get to in this post is that whilst surfing the web (I love that expression, and even though it’s a saying from the early 2000’s, I will use it forever.) I came across a gem.
A cover of Toxic.
Yael Naim is an Israeli singer-songwriter born in Paris and is 37 years old.
(I’m sure you’ll recognise her voice, or at least her song New Soul which was released in 2007.)
Yael did a cover of Spear’s Toxic and it’s AMAZING!
Very different to the original version and the word which describes it best (in my opinion) would be SENSUAL.
Have a listen to it here and let me know what you think.
