Jessie J’s “Can’t Take My Eyes Off You”: Watch The Video For Her Frankie Valli Cover
If you were hoping for a brand new song from Jessie J‘s upcoming fourth album, after her tease earlier this week…well, you’re just going to have to settle for this, instead. It’s the British songbird doing a cover of Frankie Valli‘s 1967 classic, “Can’t Take My Eyes Off You.” Despite the 2016 hip hop bent to Jessie’s rendition, you’ll know the song immediately, as there are literally over a hundred renditions of it out there.
For instance, you may recall the scene in 1978 film The Deer Hunter, where Robert De Niro, Christopher Walken and John Cazale sing it while shooting pool in a bar? UK duo also Pet Shop Boys mashed the song up in 1991 with their own dance-pop version of U2‘s “Where The Streets Have No Name,” while five years later Lauryn Hill‘s cover of “Can’t Take My Eyes Off Your” landed her a Grammy nomination.
As for Jessie’s take on the song, it was recorded for Make Up Forever’s #iamanartist campaign. Catch the video for her rendition above, complete with a multitude of hairstyles.
