When most people think of the Canadian electronic duo Purity Ring, they think of blips, bleeps, and awesome light shows. When the duo stopped by Webster Hall on January 11th and 12th for their North American tour with Young Magic, they pulled a trick out of their hat when they covered Soulja Boy‘s “Grammy.”
Singer Megan James sings both parts of Ester Dean and Soulja Boy. The trademark synth and drums of Purity Ring bring an upbeat twist to the hip hop original. Although the video quality isn’t the greatest, you can still get a taste of the duo’s ever-evolving light show to this cover.
