Sarah Jaffe Folks Up Robyn on Mashup Mondays!

Sarah Jaffe recently did a folk rendition of Robyn’s “Hang With Me” for Billboard’s Mashup Monday.Keep reading to watch the video and learn why Jaffe chose that song to sing.

Here is what Jaffe had to say in an interview with Billboard:

“There were a lot of favorites [from Robyn’s “Body Talk” series] that rotated” Jaffe says. “But ‘Hang With Me’ just kind of stuck. I just love that song. The chorus in particular, the way I heard it, I thought it could make a really sweet and kind of sad folk song. The chords are easy and I like really simple chords that allow the vocal melody to carry the song.” “I do play folk music but I am actually really drawn to electronica.,” Texan Jaffe says of choosing the Swedish dance diva’s song for her mashup. “In electronica, there are really dark lyrics buried underneath the heavy beats.”
