One of our favorite Brit sisters, Estelle, has teamed up with Daley and David Banner to give a 2011 version of a Janis Joplin Classic. “Benz” was recorded at Record Plant studios in Los Angeles and merges Banner’s Mississippi flow of Banner with the some smooth vocals from Estelle and Daley.
The song commemorates the 125th anniversary of Mercedes Benz and like the car, is an update on a good thing. Janis’ song is most well known for the line, “Oh lord, won’t you buy me…” thought it was written before any of the three artists were born.
The song will be feautured in upcoming Mercedes’ television spots. And admittedly, it’s a tune we wouldn’t mind hearing again.
What do you think of the video for “Benz”, Clutchettes- love it or leave it alone?
