Jasmine Thompson’s ‘Adore’ Gets A Boy Kiss Girl Remix: PopCrush Premiereby Bradley Stern | PopCrush
YouTube has provided a career pathway for dozens of superstars. Anyone remember how a certain Canadian named Justin Bieber first got his start?
And now, the video sharing service is once again aiding in propelling another talented crooner into the spotlight: Jasmine Thompson. The 14-year-old British singer has racked up over 250 million views (!) and counting on her YouTube channel, having covered everything from Ed Sheeran’s “Thinking Out Loud” to Vance Joy’s “Riptide” to Hozier’s “Take Me To Church.” And as a result, she’s gained plenty of new fans in high places, including Robin Schulz, who featured the young singer on his 2014 hit single “Sun Goes Down,” which went Top 10 in several territories across the globe.
After dropping an independent record called Another Bundle Of Tantrums, Thompson took the next step in her solo career this year, signing a major label deal with Atlantic Records and launching with her lush dance-pop debut, “Adore.” The song’s video has since racked up over a million views (and counting!) since its debut last month, and certainly seems to be shaping up to be a late summer club hit for the rising star.
And today, we’re happy to bring you the official Boy Kiss Girl remix of “Adore,” a club-ready, disco-inflected reinterpretation.
“One of the things I’ve learned from doing covers on YouTube is that a song can be many different songs with different sounds and meanings. It is an incredible feeling to have other people like Boy Kiss Girl rework ‘Adore’,” Jasmine tells PopCrush of the remix.
