Anybody familiar with Robyn’s discography knows that her lyrics often depict her as the jilted or still-in-love ex. With her latest single, “Call Your Girlfriend,” we see that role reversed, with Robyn herself stealing someone’s man. Welsh singer Gavin Beach‘s stripped down version of the dance hit provides just as much emotion and persuasion as the original.
Beach, who previously teamed up with Jamie Cleaton to cover Robyn’s “Dancing On My Own,” records this cover in a similarly sweeping manner. His layered piano ballad approach turns the brash lyrics into a more desperate plea, revealing the vulnerability behind such an upbeat pop song. Check it out below.
