Your tears don't shake my world like Britney Spears.

Covercentric: Tricky Does Britney

Not like that, pervs! The once trip-hop maestro has reinterpreted Britney’s “Piece Of Me” as a b-side to his new single “Murder Weapon” (which is also a cover itself). It’s a peculiar, but not totally unexpected move, as he had covered Kylie’s “Slow” before. It appears Tricky has a thing for petite pop stars with minimalist electropop tunes. Featuring the vocals of Franky Riley, Tricky’s version is a reggae-lite rework that clocks just over 2 minutes. It’s not likely to replace Britney’s original, but it’s certainly an interesting take. Get the cover below.
