Watch some exclusive behind-the-scenes footage of Grace, Jones and G-Eazy remaking Lesley Gore's feminist anthem, "You Don't Own Me."
Grace Sewell, an 18-year-old singer from Brisbane, Australia, who has the toughness of Janis Joplin and the sultry moodiness of Joss Stone, is making waves with her rendition of Lesley Gore’s iconic feminist anthem “You Don’t Own Me,” featuring Oakland rapper G-Eazy and the song's original producer, Quincy Jones.
Sewell, who lives part-time in Atlanta and goes by the stage name Grace, had been searching for her voice as a rising solo artist and met industry legend Quincy Jones at a charity banquet last year. He'd heard some of her music thanks to an existing relationship with her managers and suggested the two hit the studio to remake one of his classics. He chose the 1963 hit “You Don’t Own Me" because Gore was exactly Grace's age when she and Jones recorded it.
Below, watch some exclusive, behind-the-scenes footage of Grace, Jones and G-Eazy in the studio.
