After checking out Purple Rose’s cover of Reggaeton Lento, originally performed by CNCO & Little Mix I’m pretty certain there isn’t a style which the pianist and vocalist can’t master. Her blissfully bewitching deconstruction of sound is compellingly haunting. She’s taken the score so far away from the original mix, that it’s almost impossible to believe that the tracks stemmed from a similar orchestration. The emerging artist’s vocal style creates more of a dreamscape than a soundscape with her cover. Whilst normally, inaudible vocals may have grated on me, there’s something infinitely immersive about Purple Rose’s approach to her vocal style. She hasn’t taken to the keys with the intention of assimilating her predecessors sounds, she has composed a piece which is poised, poignant and proves that her place is on the stage. The emerging artist has definitely won me over with her resounding Folk style, I’m a little more than excited to hear the original piano compositions that I know Purple Rose is capable of creating with her beguiling passion.
You can check out Purple Rose’s cover of Reggaeton Lento on SoundCloud, along with the rest of her piano covers.
