Today we’re introduced to the sounds of New York-based Singer, Songwriter and producer Dominique, whose received support from the likes of Huw Stephens via BBC Radio 1 and Beats 1 Radio as part of Ebro Darden’s “Discovered On Apple Music” segment earlier this year. Dominique started off creating looping covers of her favorite mainstream records and adding them to her YouTube channel. The cover versions included artists such as Lorde, Miike Snow, Troye Sivan, Allie X, Melanie Martinez, The Weeknd and Travis Scott.
Speaking on her cover version of Cassie’s “Me & You,” Dominique said:
“A couple months ago someone commented on the YouTube upload of my song “If I Could Go Back” saying that he hadn’t heard such a “crisp and effervescent-sounding song” since Cassie released “Me &U”. I had been looking for the perfect song to cover, and the second I read that comment I knew I had to give “Me & U” a try. I made the production a bit more ethereal and full, but kept the vocals as the focal point as Cassie did in her original. “Me & U” was one of my favorite songs during the summer of 2006, and I hope that when people hear my cover, they’ll feel the same nostalgia I felt while making my version.”
Kicking off her first official appearance Dominique blesses us with her cover version of Cassie’s “Me & U” and her brand new hip-hop and Pop inspired single “Use Me.”
