Childish Gambino covers Tamia’s “So Into You”
Count me among the many mid 20 somethings that had a spot for “So Into You” by Tamia and Fabolous in the rotation many a summer ago. It was right as my fandom for Fab was at a high point and it came out at the perfect time when you can actually see the music video on an MTV or VH1. The beautiful Tamia struck gold with her solo version a few years earlier, again with the memorable hook with Fab, and now today as her version finds new life via Childish Gambino.
It’s Gambino who also loved this song growing up and decided to hit all the high notes in covering it today. He does it justice throughout, including on the hook, over some subtle keys and his own snaps that allowed his voice to bring people in. This video’s already going viral so get hip to it above and stay tuned through the end for that guitar solo and one last excellent chorus.
Oh, and of course… let’s run it back! #FBF
BONUS: Childish also performed “Sober” below.
