Monday Mashup

This week’s Monday Mashup features the emerging young YouTube artist, Jessie Marie Villa. I stumbled across her channel this week and was sparked with interest as she covered some of Lana Del Rey’s top hits with just her sweet voice and accompanying guitar. I was expecting an amateur sound and an “okay” cover at first sight, just seeing a girl and her guitar in what looks like a typical college dorm room. But I was pleasantly surprised when Villa began to sing. In what sounds so effortless, Villa¬†covers Del Rey’s hits, “Summertime Sadness,” “Dark Paradise,” and “Young and Beautiful” with the most delightful¬†mashup. Everyone knows I’m a sucker for some Lana.
