UK producer Jonas Blue is currently riding high in the upper ranges of the iTunes charts in both Australia and New Zealand with his take on Tracy Chapman’s 1988 classic Fast Car.
Released last December and featuring guest vocals from Dakota, the 23 year old Londoner’s tropical house reworking now has a cowboy-themed video to go with it which was directed by Adam Newton-Berra and you can catch it up top.
Chapman’s original was a #5 hit upon its release and remains the biggest UK hit of her career – in the US, it’s her 1995 single Give Me One Reason that holds that accolade having reached #3 on the Billboard Hot 100. In 2011, Fast Car re-entered the UK countdown following an audition that aired on Britain’s Got Talent. The song subsequently went on to surpass its original UK chart placing, reaching a new peak of #4.
