Here’s @ColePlante’s winning take on classic “Teardrops” featuring @Bobimusic

COLE PLANTE featuring BOBI, “Teardrops”

I trod in potentially muddy waters when I decided to play this song and this low, expressive voice started singing what are some of my favourite lyrics of the last 30 years.  So what did I get myself into?  I would never have associated 19 year old California producer/DJ Cole Plante with the 1988 Womack & Womack classic which was such a huge hit in the UK and Europe but not in North America.  It’s been covered many times over, but “Teardrops” is a massive, soulful win for Cole, who broke out DJing with Skrillex at age 16, and has already had a Billboard Dance Club Chart #1.  The skillful vocal by Bobi has major punch, charm and emotion rolled all into one.  Cole’s mix slams hard when it needs to and has a lush and percussive backdrop.  While it’s a solo vocal outing rather than a duet, look for “Teardrops” to garner favour in clubland fast.  Radio stations looking for a song that’s somewhat familiar yet never a hit over here may wish to invest some time with this rendition.  Two big thumbs up!!  Listen above on Spotify.
