You Don’t Own Me is a spectacular song from new Australian singer songwriter Grace. It’s a stunning re-working of Lesley Gore hit You Don’t Own Me. The 60′s pop artist recently passed away, and I have mad respect for her artistry, plus I harbor fond memories of listening to her hits with my mom, while growing up. Lesley really laid the foundation for most of the female pop sensations of our time. Grace’s passionate version features Oakland hip hop artist G-Eazy on guest rap vocals, and it’s a compelling combination. I never thought I’d encounter a hip hop imbued You Don’t Own Me, complete with all of its minor key, spaghetti Western styled vintage splendor. All I need are some wicked boots, and I’m ready to strut around to this tune.
