Danielle Bradbery Covers Ariana Grande’s ‘God Is a Woman,’ Off ‘Yours Truly: 2018′ Project
Danielle Bradbery has unveiled the first of three tribute performances that she plans to share over the coming weeks as a part of her new Yours Truly: 2018 project, which the singer says is an homage to some of her favorite music from the year.
First up, the country singer offers her own pristine take on Ariana Grande's "God Is a Woman," which the pop superstar originally released in the summer of 2018 as the second single from her fourth studio album, Sweetener. In a press release, Bradbery explains that she chose to cut "God Is a Woman" because she saw it as one of the year's stand-out tracks, as well as a way to exercise the stylistic versatility that has been a part of her musical repertoire ever since she began singing.
"I grew up listening to all kinds of music, from country to R&B and hip hop, even Hispanic music with my mom's side of the family," Bradbery tells Billboard. "Incredible music was released across all genres this year, so I wanted to mark this moment in time with my own versions of some of my favorites. I can't wait for everyone to hear my take on these songs."
She will showcase that range again in the weeks to come, as the two other tracks included on Yours Truly: 2018 come out. Bradbery plans to share her interpretation of Kacey Musgraves' "Slow Burn" on Friday, Dec. 28. Then, on Jan. 4, the final third of the project -- a cover of Post Malone's "Psycho" -- will be released.
