WATCH: Paramore, “Passionfruit (Drake Cover)”

You would think R&B-tinged rap and pop-rock wouldn’t get along, but Paramore continue to impress. The group, who are busy promoting their latest album After Laughter, stopped by BBC Radio 1’s Live Lounge and performed. A highlight of their set was a cover of Drake‘s infectious hit “Passionfruit.” Between Hayley Williams‘ lovely vocals and the spot on instrumentation, it’s a great cover. Check it out after the jump!

Music Cities: Sacramento

My city is Northern California’s best kept secret, so don’t go spreading any of the information I’m about to share with you. As a cultural/musical hub we have a long way to go, but the beauty and easy lifestyle of Sacramento are hard to match. Sacramento sits on the confluence of two rivers and boasts the 2nd most trees of any city in the world.
