Taking on the smash hit “Are You That Somebody” by late r&b star Aaliyah, BANKS performs a spectacular acoustic rendition guaranteed to send chills up your spine. Showcasing her impressive vocals, BANKS adds her own flair to “Are You Somebody” while paying respects to the original. The cover is an enjoyable listen from start to finish, from the excellent guitar and percussion all the way to the range in BANK’s voice.
