Emeli Sande is finally blowing up in the US with Labrinth collaboration “Beneath Your Beautiful” sitting pretty at number 6 on iTunes. But the Scottish diva isn’t quite finished with the song that got the ball rolling for her over here — surprise top 30 hit “Next To Me”.
She has joined forces with Spanish music icon Alejandro Sanz (best known internationally for his epic Shakira duet “La Tortura”) to record a Spanglish version of her gospel-pop hit. Well, Alejandro croons in his trademark throaty Spanish while Emeli sings in English. It kind of works. Take a listen after the jump.
Is this Spanglish experiment a hit or miss? Tell us in the comments below.
