Fresh from releasing their acclaimed debut EP Belgian-Japanese duo Aili returns with a cover of Fergie’s 2006 pop hit 'Glamorous'. Transforming the original’s sleek R&B into neon lit future pop, Aili’s interpretation comes complete with body popping electro rhythms, acidic bleeps and the lyrics, sung in Japanese, all delivered in their distinctive style.
“This song got us through puberty,” explains Maruyama, “and whilst we were recording the new EP and needed a break we decided to play around with it as a kind of challenge and loved how it sounded. We translated the lyrics into Japanese as that felt more personal, et voilà! We hope that one day we can invite Fergie on stage to perform it with us!”
Much like their exhilarating debut EP which saw them feted as one of 2021’s hottest new talents by Belgian music press and radio, Aili’s cover of 'Glamorous' is an invitation to dance & let your inhibitions go and just the thing to wake us from our winter slumber and warm us up for their next release.
