Miguel & Wale Team Up For Cover Of Elton John’s “Bennie And The Jets”: Listen

330ca4b3b4923bd232cd39600681e6e8 Miguel & Wale Team Up For Cover Of Elton John’s “Bennie And The Jets”: Listen

Miguel still hasn’t delivered on his promise for a sequel to his Art Dealer Chic EPs, but at least we got that Adult Swim singlethe song he wrote for HBO’s Girls and now a cover of Elton John‘s legendary “Bennie And The Jets,” which features Wale.

That iconic, plodding piano line is punchier for the remake, buttressed by lightly distorted guitars and hefty drum thwacks, while Miguel, unsurprisingly, has no problem tackling the acrobatic vocals. Wale’s verse seems a little unnecessary, but remember they had to fill the time that originally contained Elton’s piano solo. And just to make up points in the “faithful” department, there’s even background party chatter during the song.

The cover will appear on the deluxe edition and box set reissue of Elton’s 1973 classic Goodbye Yellow Brick Road, which is out March 24 and also features covers by Ed Sheeran, Emeli Sande, Fall Out Boy and more. Hear Miguel and Wale’s effort below.
