mid-week music moment: Yuna covering Frank Ocean

In an attempt to bring me out of my afternoon fog yesterday, I took a little browse through one of my favorite menswear and lifestyle sites, Four-Pins. I cruised around and decided to check out their list of favorite muses of 2012. One was an artist named Yuna, because of this song. 

I was absolutely floored when I clicked through and heard this cover, and I think you might be, too. As you can probably tell from earlier posts, I love Frank Ocean, and while his version will always be tops, this is just so, so pretty. I the layering of voices, and the slowed down pace that makes this version almost two minutes longer than the original.

(You can watch the video here.)


  1. Saw her open for Allen Stone a month or two ago in Portland. This cover way amazing live!

  2. If you get the chance to see her live, do it! I saw her open for Emeli Sande and feel in love.

  3. Of course I meant fell, not feel.

  4. LOVE the Yuna cover of the Frank Ocean song! Thank you for sharing
