Aussie soul singer Grace belts on 'Memo (Boyfriend Jeans)'
Aussie sensation Grace might have a musical lineage—her grandparents sang with the Gibb brothers (also known as the Bee Gees)—but her modern brand of pop-soul is entirely her own. The 18-year-old singer hinted at her vocal prowess earlier this year when she collaborated with G-Eazy and Quincy Jones for a cover of Lesley Gore’s “You Don’t Own Me.” She’ll continue to show off her Winehouse-esque pipes on her debut EP Memo when it drops May 26, and EW has an exclusive taste of one of her best upcoming songs. “Memo (Boyfriend Jeans)” is a sparse, piano-driven ballad designed to show off Grace’s voice. The strategy works.
