Watch Janelle Monae Cover Jimi Hendrix’s “Little Wing”

    Janelle Monae has long filled out her live set with covers, but we haven’t seen one as awesome as this one: Earlier this week in Mexico, her and her band delivered a soulful and shredding cover of Jimi Hendrix’s perfect ballad “Little Wing.” The guitar solo is handled by Monae’s more than competent guitarist, while she sweetly coos and howls the lyrics. 

    We know this is a Hendrix cover, but this makes us excited for the two LPs Monae plans to put out this year. [CoS]
