MØ Covers the Spice Girls: You’ve Never Heard “Say You’ll Be There” Like This Before

MØ won’t release her debut LP No Mythologies To Follow until March, but the Danish singer already knows how to appeal to pop fans around the world: Make a killer Spice Girls cover.

The up-and-coming pop star Karen Marie Ørsted, who performs as MØ, took the UK girl group’s “Say You’ll Be There” and re-worked it as a hypnotic slow jam.

MØ recently told Billboard that the Spice Girls were the first group she ever bought an album from: “I felt like they were talking to my soul,” she said. And she hit the nail on the head: this sultry re-imagining of the 1996 Spice Girls hit speaks to ours.
