Ellie Goulding & Xaphoon Jones "High For This" (Cover)
One of last Summer’s bangers gets revamped by two up-and-coming artists- Xaphoon Jones (of Chiddy Bang) and Ellie Goulding. Here, they brighten up the dark ballad by The Weeknd.

1 Love T.O. does a great feature called “Covered,” which is where I spotted this gem. Personally, I’m not always a fan of cover versions, as more often than not they aim to recapture the original song but fall short in doing so. With that being said, when artists deliver a new perspective on a older track, covers can really bring new life to a song.



Ellie and Xaphoon execute that notion to a tee. It’s nice to hear the female vocals, but Xaphoon’s beat steals the show. His ability to chop up the vocal samples and fit them into the background is quite amazing and really takes this minimal beat to the next level. Grab the track for free over at Ellie Goulding’s Soundcloud page.
