Australian singer Grace premieres the official music video for You Don’t Own Me:


IMG_4959Australian breakthrough singer Grace Sewell has premiered the official music video for her G-Eazy-assisted reworking of Lesley Gore’s You Don’t Own Me

Having earned the support and input of original producer Quincy Jones, the track topped Australia’s ARIA singles chart last month and its arrival at the summit of the countdown was followed by the release of the Brisbane native’s smokey debut EP Memo.

The most notable update on Grace’s take on the 1963 classic emerges early on with G-Eazy trading verses for raps, Grace crooning amidst some yelping choral backing vocals whilst scaled back, atmospheric electronics  bubble under the surface.

But, by building the chorus up to a sea of sweeping strings and with Grace delivering the chorus’ key notes with the defiant flair of the track’s most famous singers, You Don’t Own Me 2015 successfully brings together the old elements with the new for a soulful electro hip-hop experience.
