Check Out Years & Years’ Spot-On Cover Of The Weeknd’s ‘Earned It’


Tue, July, 14 by


We’ve spent all year gushing over British band Years & Years and now that their debut album Communion is finally out, we think they’re really going to blow up. Don’t believe us? Just listen to their “song of the summer” contender, King. We guarantee you won’t be able to stop listening to this.

The band recently performed at BBC Radio 1 and in that session, they covered another one of our personal faves, The Weeknd. Covering his 50 Shades of Grey hit, Earned It, lead singer Olly Alexander gave his best Abel Tesfaye impression and the result is pretty spot-on. It’s just as haunting and sensual as the original and if you’re a fan of this cover, we definitely recommend listening to Communion now.
