Empress Of "I Can't Feel My Face" (the Weeknd cover)
Published Nov 20, 2015Empress Of introduced herself this year with a debut album simply titled Me, but she's looked to another artist for inspiration on a new cover song. For a session with SiriusXM U, the artist (born Lorely Rodriguez) delivered a delightfully redone version of the Weeknd's mega hit "I Can't Feel My Face."
It opens on a sweet note, with Rodriguez's sultry vocals backed by a stripped-down piano line, but bursts into an energetic, borderline vaudevillian rendition by the time the chorus rolls around.
