It's hard not to immediately fall in love with Malaysian singer-songwriter Yuna, and not just because she's effing adorable. Her interpretation of "Thinkin Bout You" feels refreshingly original, as she turns Ocean's R&B heartbreaker into a sea of warm vocal loops with a hypnotic, ethereal flow that sounds like what Feist might have done with the song. The clip is nicely shot, shifting in an out of focus as it rests on both the singer and items around her room, including an OK Computer poster that makes her even more loveable. This is the only song she covers on her YouTube channel, but get stoked: She released her US album via The Fader this spring.
