With her upcoming album, It’s A Day And Night Thing, dropping in November, Vanessa Elisha is back at the DopeHouse with a new cover of Missy Elliott’s “Friendly Skies.”
Similar to her reworking of 50 Cent’s “21 Questions” a couple years back, the Australian songstress does her thing over slightly tweaked production that better suits her sound.
“I really wanted to pay homage to Missy Elliott’s early work and how it has inspired my sound,” Elisha told Mass Appeal. “I was playing around with a beat one day and I started to sing ‘Friendly Skies’ and it all just came about so naturally. I wasn’t sure I’d even put it out at the time, but I completely switched up the beat and fell in love with the rework, so I had to share it.”
