Bennie and the Jets | Miguel x Wale (Elton John cover)

"Miguel's done a fantastic job.  It really makes the best of what the song is all about. And it is an unusual song. It's not what I think is a hit record, but then that's probably why it was a hit record, because it didn't sound like anything else before. It's important not to copy, and that's what Miguel did"- Elton John (via Rolling Stone)

Miguel and Wale put their own personal spin on Elton John's and one of my favorite songs of all time, Bennie and the Jets.  This cover will fall on John's reissue of "Goodbye Yellow Brick Road" album for it's 40th anniversary.  The album will feature covers by Emeli Sande, Fall Out Boy, and other artists.
