Rixton Releases Cover of Ariana Grande’s ‘Problem’ [VIDEO]

by | PopCrush

British group Rixton paid tribute to Ariana Grande today by releasing a cover of Grande’s summer hit ‘Problem,’ which is topping the charts worldwide.

The band sent Grande a congratulatory message for hitting No. 1 on the UK charts, and surprised fans with their cover of ‘Problem.’

Rixton puts their own spin and flavor into the Grande hit and does a pretty good job recreating the spirit of the song. The band substitutes the saxophone medley from ‘Problem’ into a guitar riff that is just as catchy. Unfortunately for us, they didn’t dare try to rap Iggy Azalea‘s verse, but we see that as lead singer Jake Roche paying reverence to Azalea and her ability to drop rhymes.
