Corinne Bailey Rae has covered Prince’s classic “I Wanna Be Your Lover” tune. Though the British singer usually sticks to slow soul, she kept the original funkiness in tact.
She’ll be releasing “The Love EP,” a digital-only album of love song covers, on Valentine’s Day. On the 5-song disc, she also does Bob Marley’s “Is This Love.”
Of the Prince rendition, she says, “It’s just really fun! I thought, I never get to do really fun, synthy, aggressive bright things.”
“I met Prince in London at his gigs at the O2 and he gave me loads of encouragement. I was amazed by the gig but even more impressed by the aftershow he did in a small venue where he tore up on the guitar and played other people’s songs too. This is one of my favourite Prince songs and gives me the chance to sing the kind of sexy, rhythmical music I love but never seem to write. Getting the chance to do this song was a dream.”
