Why do we like this?

As he embarks on his first live American tour, Perth beatmaker extraordinaire Ta-ku has released "American Girl," his mesmerizing recreation of Estelle's "American Boy." 

Sharing vocal duties with sensual songstress Wafia, Ta-Ku turns the once upbeat chart-topper into a slow-burning emotional number highlighted by the pair's smooth vocals and Ta-ku's heartfelt minimalistic production. Check out his on thoughts on the track below:

"American Girl" started as a joke when I was watching old Kobe Bryant highlights and Estelle's ''American Boy'' was the soundtrack. I really wanted to make a stripped back #emotional version that would play on its really great melodic structure. I reached out to my lovely friend @Wafia to sing a duet with me & mustered enough courage to jump on the first verse. I'm very proud of this song. I hope you enjoy it."
