I’m always leery of singers doing covers of classic songs; I approach it with the mindset that if the original was awesome, there’s no point in touching it unless you can do the song justice. So, I was very pleased to hear this digital album from AAries and thought I should share the link so you could download it and enjoy. The twins, Ayana and Ayinke Hipps, have beautiful voices and shame on me for not paying attention to them sooner! I remember listening to Musiq’s “Girl Next Door” and Settle For My Love (one of my favorite songs), but I never took the time to find out who the female leads were on those songs. Through the awesomeness of Twitter, I saw a link to ‘CoverGirls’ and was better introduced to AAries.
While I enjoy all six tracks, my favorites are Baby, This Love I Have and Don’t Ask My Neighbor/Nothing Even Matters. I’m not sure which one hits that note towards the end of Baby, but what I do know is that I got chills. My suggestion is you take a listen and cop this download.
