Ta-ku graces us with his a cover of Kanye and Estelle’s hit song “American Boy” with this beautiful new piece – “American Girl”. Featuring his own vocals (which he is not known for) and singer Wafai, it’s a slowed down, orchestral, bass heavy 5 minute work of mastery.

In the soundcloud description, Ta-ku writes:

“American Girl started as a joke when I was watching old Kobe Bryant highlights and Estelle’s ”American Boy” was the soundtrack. I really wanted to make a stripped back #emotional version that would play on its really great melodic structure. I reached out to my lovely friend @Wafia to sing a duet with me & mustered enough courage to jump on the first verse. I’m very proud of this song. I hope you enjoy it.”
