Tinashe, SZA, and More Cover “Killing Me Softly” [VIDEO]


What happens when T magazine gathers some of music’s most talented women for a photo shoot? A beautiful cover of Roberta Flack’s ’70s soul classic, “Killing Me Softly With His Song .” For their Spring Women’s Fashion issue, the publication tapped Tinashe, SZA, Dej Loaf, Lord Narf, Abra, Empress Of, and Jean Deaux to show off some pricey garments—a Fendi bomber jacket, Alexander Wang earrings, a Tod’s jacket—and stunning voices.

Tinashe kicks off the group’s rendition of “Killing Me Softly” with powerful vocals. She’s currently prepping the release of a brand-new album titled Joyride. So far, she’s delivered the Young Thug-assisted “Party Favors,” “Player” featuring Chris Brown, and “Ride of Your Life.” Each of these shows a different side to the singer, who unleashed her debut album Aquarius last year.

This isn’t the first time we’ve seen her in the same circle with Detroit rapper Dej Loaf. Both artists tour with Nicki Minaj for The Pinkprint tour, and even more recently, they announced a Mac Cosmetics line titled “Future Forward.”

SZA is also having a moment of her own. The TDE songstress is featured on the opening track of Rihanna’s new album, ANTI, and continues to prep a new EP.

Check out the smooth cover of  “Killing Me Softly” below. And feel free to reminisce with The Fugees’ popular version.
