Childish Gambino – “So Into You” (Tamia cover)

Childish Gambino recently did a live performance cover of Tamia‘s classic R&B song “So Into You“, for Triple J‘s Like A Version segment. I got goosebumps the moment he began singing, and knew that I had to share it here. I remember when that song and video originally came out, so hearing it again, after not hearing it for several years, brought a real big, happy smile to my face; especially hearing it performed so beautifully by Childish Gambino.

His voice gracefully soars over dancing keys and prominent finger snaps, and you can feel the emotion through his vocals on this song, as well as the way he moves; his performance looks and feels so pure, as if, maybe, this is a special song that holds a lot of weight and memories. It’s a stunning performance, and his backing band is wonderful. Wait until that guitar comes in, and those falsettos that he hits–goodness gracious! Enough talking, hit play on the video below!
