We love Bruno Mars' smash hit "Gorilla." We love when a talented artist like Danielia Cotton covers the track.
ARTISTdirect has teamed up with Cotton to premiere her Bruno Mars cover and we know you are going to love it just as much as we did. We have the perfect way to spend your mid-summer Thursday -- by listening to Danielia Cotton's take on a Mars neo-classic. She really has made it her own, hasn't she?
When selecting the track list for her first album of covers, The Real Book, out September 16, New Jersey-born singer Cotton chose songs that spoke to her in the midst of a dark time. "My life was in a state of turmoil," Cotton told us. "So I gravitated towards songs that I knew would help me cope with the challenges that I was experiencing." She says they are "the songs and stories I thought I could live and tell in my own way."
With that in mind, enjoy her cover of Bruno Mars' "Gorilla." She sure tells this story in her own way, with her rich, warm and smoky-toned voice. We're totally enamored by Danielia Cotton and her voice. Guys, we think Peter Hernandez himself (that's B. Mars' real name, all of you keeping score at home) would give this a thumbs up and his personal approval.
Did you dig Danielia Cotton's take on "Gorilla?"
