Bryan Ferry Helped Emeli Sande Re-imagine Beyonce Hit

(Radio.com) As a songwriter who has written hits for the likes of Rihanna and Susan Boyle, Emeli Sandé understands how hard it can be for someone to take a song they didn't write and make it all their own. Sandé herself experienced this dilemma from the singer's side of things when she covered Beyoncé's "Crazy In Love" for The Great Gatsby soundtrack.

Sandé recently told Radio.com that she did feel some pressure covering Bey's hit track for the Jay-Z-produced album, but said her nerves were calmed when she realized she just had to approach it like she would any one of her own songs.

"I was never trying to do anything to imitate the original recording," Sandé explained. "But it was just fun for me to take it on and add my own bit of personality."

Thanks to former Roxy Music leader Bryan Ferry, her version is a horn-laden ode to the Roaring Twenties that would certainly get the flappers dancing. more on this story
