Hear Miguel Cover Elton John’s ‘Bennie and the Jets’

By Scott T. Sterling

Miguel can make anything sound sexy. Even “Bennie and the Jets.”

The “Adorn” singer recorded a new version of Elton John‘s 1973 song, choosing to stay true to the original arrangement while adding a few modern flourishes of his very own, including a buzzing synthesizer bass line, a few digital piano stutters and his own signature vocal styling.

The version also comes complete with a rap from Wale, who makes a wry reference to the original lyrics, rapping about how she’s “in a mohair suit signing autographs.” Miguel also shout outs this mohair suit, wondering, “Where do you get a mohair suit anyway?” Logical question, really.
