One of the most enjoyable things about artists covering other people’s music is when the song covered fits seamlessly into the interpreter’s style, uncannily merging into their set list, sounding like they actually could have written it. Such is the case with Little Dragon’s extremely appropriate cover of Kelis and Andre 3000’s "Millionaire," an '80s funk and minimal wave-textured classic. The group condenses the dialogue of the original into a solo for Little Dragon's Yukimi Nagano, making the drama more ambiguous—is this an imagined, anticipated conversation, or one being remembered? They left it up to you—take a listen.
