Despite a very future-leaning weekend at III Points Festival, Miami was given a quick gasp of the ’90s, thanks to SZA. On Saturday night, the Oscar-nominated and CoSigned singer waxed nostalgic to the days of She’s All That by covering Sixpence None the Richer’s 1998 rom-com hit “Kiss Me”.
“That song makes me happy as fuck and I really wish it was ‘98 right now,” she admitted.
Sadly, Rachel Leigh Cook — or Freddie Prinze, Jr., for that matter — weren’t around to help sing along. However, SZA was clearly up for the task, injecting some indelible R&B flavor into the candy-coated alternative jam. Listen below for those extended harmonies followed by the original.
