Here’s a mash-up that’s as extreme as it gets. James Blunt, who made a gazillion people mope away with his # 1 smash ‘You’re Beautiful‘, covers none other than present chart dominatrix Katy Perry’s # 1 single ‘California Girls‘, for Billboard Magazine’s Mash-Up Mondays. And the Brit doesn’t sound too bad on his version of the summer jam at all, although it would’ve been interesting to hear him cover Snoop Dogg’s rap verses as well, especially with his accent.
Good step taken by him to break back into the US market again, since his last hit there was in May 2006 with ‘You’re Beautiful‘. He’s back with a new album ‘Some Kind Of Trouble‘, lets see if it recreates the success of ‘Back To Bedlam‘.
