“Controlla” is one of the obvious highlights on Drake’s latest album, Views. The single is steadily climbing its way up the charts, and it’s even received approval from the likes of Kendrick Lamar and DJ Khaled. But as it turns out, “Controlla” stripped of its infectious beat and slowed right down is something that’s seductive and mesmerizing.
During their recent visit to BBC Radio 1’s Live Lounge, Mura Masa and Bonzai took on the Views single and performed a beautifully stripped down version with Mura Masa on the electric guitar and Bonzai on vocals. Having worked together before and yielding some terrific results, it’s no surprise that their cover is just as great.
