mid-week music moment: Chet Faker covers No Diggity

Chet Faker, "No Diggity" (Blackstreet Cover)
Ok, so let's all be honest and realize that nothing will ever measure up to the original Blackstreet version of this song. It makes it onto just about every party playlist I make in iTunes; it's a true classic and guaranteed to get people dancing and reminiscing about 8th grade dances. I can appreciate this version though, it's a little more raspy and sultry, and rather fits the moody, grey days we are having in New York right now.

What do you think?
Additionally, in case you forgot, watch the Blackstreet video below. Note that the "cool factor" for the moment is a bunch of girls dancing in front of four stretch limos and wearing white overalls with black tee shirts. They were simpler times, indeed.
