What’s so incredible about Grace’s new interpretation of Lesley Gore’s 1963 classic “You Don’t Own Me” featuring G-Eazy is the fact that the 17-year-old Australian singer and songwriter engenders the track with a newfound sense of soul. Now, we’re talking about one of the most iconic women’s anthems in history, and Grace enhances that spirit with a soulful dynamic delivery that’s downright pummeling. She’s got the spirit of Janis Joplin and Shirley Bassey coursing through her tunes, but there’s an undeniably modern fire burning brighter than anything. You’ll feel like the track is hers.
Also, let’s discuss just how airtight G-Eazy’s rhymes are on this one. Channeling that sixties spirit is perfect fare for him, but he churns out some of his most vibrant verses yet. These two should do a whole record together!
“You Don’t Own Me” has come to life for a new generation. Listen to it now and get to know Grace as she’s bound for greatness.
