American Idol alum Melinda Doolittle and Postmodern Jukebox slay sultry cover of Toxic

Posted on

Postmodern Jukebox have sent Melinda Doolittle on a ride.

The web’s favorite cover band enlisted the American Idol alum for a 1930s-inspired take on Britney Spears’ modern classic, “Toxic.” The cover comes from their latest album Squad Goals, out now.

Doolittle, who finished third in Idol‘s sixth season, delivers swagger and sophistication behind every line as she transports Spears’ hit to an after-hours jazz club jam session. “Toxic” is just one gem on Postmodern Jukebox’s Squad Goals, also featuring covers of Hanson’s “MMMbop,” Celine Dion’s “My Heart Will Go On,” and Soundgarden’s “Black Hole Sun.”

Check out the performance of “Toxic” in the video above.
