Glasgow synth-pop gurus Chvrches have posted a cover of the R&B diva’s stylish 2010 single, “Tightrope.”
The performance was recorded during Billboard’s “Women in Music” event, at which Monáe was in attendance. The band included a special introduction thanking Monáe and Billboard for the opportunity to cover the song. Monáe took home the award for “Rising Star.”
