G Flip recently took to triple j’s ‘Like A Version’ studios to deliver a cover of Christina Aguilera, Lil Kim, Mýa and Pink’s 2001 version of LaBelle’s ’70s hit, ‘Lady Marmalade’ – and she brought a bunch of other female Aussie musos with her.
The Melbourne singer-songwriter enlisted the vocal talents of Thandi Phoenix, New Zealand rapper JessB, Jess Kent and The Preatures’ Isabella Manfredi. She also had varied instrumental support from I Know Leopard’s Rosie Fitzgerald, Alex The Astronaut, Clio Renner, Kate Richards, Bernice Tasara and Carla Dobbie.
The cover was chosen specifically for International Women’s Day, which is happening this Sunday (March 8). Watch her performance below.
“I’ve been thinking about doing ‘Like A Version’ for the majority of my life. I’ve always been a triple j listener and it was a long term dream to play my own ‘Like A Version’,” G Flip said in a press statement.
“I’ve been making a shortlist of songs for years, including the idea of playing ‘Lady Marmalade’ with a large band, so when triple j asked me to play ‘Like A Version’ two days before International Women’s Day, it felt right to pick ‘Lady Marmalade’ and get some of my most boss women friends to join me.”
“International Women’s Day is a day to bring together and celebrate women. My cover is a culmination of exactly that. It felt right to gather some of my very talented female buddies and smash out this song together.”
In addition to the cover, G Flip – aka Georgia Flipo – performed an original track ‘Hyperfine’ that is yet to be officially released. She did, however, post a live demo of the track on social media last week.
