Watch: James Blake covers Aqua’s ‘Barbie Girl’

A surprising cover from the 'Assume Form' artist

James Blake covered Aqua’s campy hit track “Barbie Girl” in both Los Angeles and Brooklyn.

Fan-shot footage has surfaced online, revealing Blake’s unexpected take on the Aqua track on December 11th at The Theater at Ace Hotel in Los Angeles and December 18th at BAM Strong in Brooklyn. Blake’s fun-loving cover of the tune is surprisingly melancholic and nostalgic, starting out slow before he continues to sing both the tenor and falsetto lines of the song.
