Your Paris (Nick Babcock and Laila Kharouba) is a duo and real-life couple based in Toronto, Canada. Not too long ago, they released a delightful, self-produced remake of Childish Gambino’s “Redbone” single.

“‘Redbone’ is one of our all-time favorites. It’s such a dynamic song in that it’s haunting and dark. But also so full of this tragic, desperate type of love. We are picky with the songs we cover because we always want them to feel really true to our voice. This one feels right for us. Also, we love to bring elements of different genres into our music, and ‘Redbone’ has that R&B soul in it.” – Your Paris explained
Your Paris’ “Redbone” remake compliments Gambino’s original funkified R&B version. The cover takes an indie-R&B approach that will resonate well with fans of the classic heartbreak anthem. Your Paris has been playing “Redbone” for some time now. Therefore, it seems right for them to release the fan-friendly tune as a single.

“When we play the song live, we find it often quiets the room and gets people actually listening. The song itself is recognizable, but with such a different sonic approach, it’s refreshingly surprising. Also, it’s definitely in our wheelhouse to sing about heartbreak and infidelity. It’s the stuff that needs to be sung and talked about but too many people shy away from it. We’ve all experienced this sh*t, so why not explore it in music?” – Your Paris explained
‘Redbone’ contains a chilling vocal performance, energized pop production, and grounding acoustic elements. Also, the song finds Your Paris exploring betrayal and doubt—a prime example of their delicate and soulful blending of genres. Furthermore, “Redbone” serves as a tasty appetizer to what listeners can expect to hear from Your Paris in the near future as they continue to release more ear-welcoming music.
