RCA’s newest singer Grace has joined forces with G-Eazy and Quincy Jones to recreate Lesley Gore’s hit song “You Don’t Own Me.”
The original track which was released in 1963 was considered one of the first women’s empowerment anthems of the 60s. This new take of on classic features new lyrics from G-Eazy that resonate with today’s youth. You can stream it via Spotify. The original track was produced by Quincy Jones, who also co-produced the new version as a way to pay homage to Gore before her passing. The new “You Don’t Owe Me” was also co-produced by Parker Ighile who brings an electro hip-hop aesthetic to the 2015 track. the 17-year-old singer/songwriter, Grace, is taking the pop-soul world by storm and has been influenced by singers like Smokey Robinson to Janis Joplin, and Shirley Bassey to Amy Winehouse. Grace is currently working on her EP which will be released this spring through RCA.
