Blondshell Covers Samia’s ‘Charm You’

    Samia has announced the Honey Reimagined singles series, which sees artists including Maya Hawke, Hovvdy, Ruston Kelly, and more offering their take on songs from her sophomore album Honey. First up is Blondshell’s cover of ‘Charm You’, which you can hear below.

    The new project is inspired by 2021’s The Baby Reimagined, which featured reimagined versions of songs from Samia’s debut album by Bartees Strange, Briston Maroney, MICHELLE, Anjimile, Christian Lee Hutson, and more.

    “I’ve always been vocal about community being important to me,” Samia said in a press release. “I couldn’t do this without my friends. We reimagined The Baby in 2020 because we were all stuck at home during the pandemic but the idea felt so true to the ethos of this project that I wanted to try it again with Honey. It’s always exciting to give songs a new life, especially with such great musicians involved.”

    Blondshell added: “I’ve been inspired by Samia for such a long time. She puts so much of herself into her songs, so much love for people and places. That was one of the things that stood out to me most about Honey – all of the friendship and joy that cut through darkness. I really felt that on ‘Charm You’ and I’m so happy to be part of her project.”
