Without a doubt, you’ve never heard the Beatles like this.
Granted, that’s because it’s not really the Beatles at all. It’s Toronto R&B artist Jahkoy covering the Beatles – or at least the chorus of the classic “I Want to Hold Your Hand” – and this version comes remixed by fresh new face Isabella Graham.
It’s poppy, lush melodies are almost enough to make you forget about John, Paul, George, and Ringo, but as soon as that chorus comes in, it’s Beatlemania for the Bieber generation. Not to take away from Jahkoy’s own sultry vocals. He definitely puts his stamp on this PG ode to romance. Fans can hear his version of “Hold Your Hand” along with other hits “Still in Love,” “Odd Future,” and “all of YOU” at the Billboard Hot 100 Festival Saturday August 20.
