On her latest single, Katy Perry departs from the bubbly pop stylings of previous hits to craft a soaring power ballad dedicated to a man whom she loves Unconditionally. The cut’s emotional power wasn’t lost on multi-talented N.Y. native DB2, who reworks it into a soulfully understated burner on his latest promo single. In place of the original’s explosive, Dr. Luke/Max Martin/Cirkut-produced beat, the headliner crafts a sensual groove driven by subtly jazzy keyboard chords. His gently-cooed vocals perfectly complement the instrumental’s soothing vibe. This cover isn’t attached to a larger set, but the original can be found on Perry’s Prism LP, out now in stores and online. For more from DB2, cop his Tears Signal Flow, Vol. 1 EP, released to iTunes earlier this month.
