dvsn takes on Aaliyah and Prince.
During a performance for BBC Radio 1Xtra’s “Live Lounge,” the OVO duo of Daniel Daley and Nineteen85 delivered a rousing cover medley mashup of Aaliyah’s “One in a Million” and Prince’s “Purple Rain.”
The throwback-influenced performance took place in a violet-lit room, which only added to the Prince-inspired ambiance. Backed by three powerful singers, Daley created a classic blend, while Nineteen85 plucked an acoustic guitar.
dvsn didn’t stop there. On top of the aforementioned covers, the duo also performed “Mood” live in the 1Xtra Live Lounge. This time, the room’s lighting was a mixture of red, orange, and pink, which only heightened the song’s passionate vibes.
This wasn’t the first time dvsn covered the Aaliyah classic with some Prince influence. In fact, their version of the mashup has been floating around since 2016. Meanwhile, “Mood” came out as part of last year’s Morning After.
The Canadian duo is currently on the “Morning After World Tour,” which wraps April 4 in Stockholm.
