The Netherlands’ @Jeronimomusic boldly transforms @BritneySpears’ “Toxic” into an acoustic jazz adventure

JERONIMO DASILVA, “Toxic”

It’s been a while since I’ve written about the many talents of Dutch singer and entertainer Jeronimo, who dazzled me so much with “One Kiss” (below) back in 2012.  Now billing himself as Jeronimo DaSilva, he continues to please his many fans this time with an intriguing choice for a cover, Britney Spears’ 2004 smash “Toxic”.  In order to showcase the much richer tones of his voice, Jeronimo and his team have stripped back “Toxic” and married it with an acoustic jazz arrangement.  The results are simple but way more effective than I would have anticipated.  Plus the video also continues to show off the singer’s natural charm in front of the camera.  I for one would be very happy with an ‘unplugged’ EP of clever cover choices like “Toxic”.  Watch the video above.
