Christine & The Queens has recorded a devastating cover of the Michael Jackson classic 'Who Is It'. Check it out below. 

Ahead of her upcoming UK tour and recorded for Annie Mac on BBC Radio One, the rising 'Tilted' sensation's take on the single from Jackson's 1991 album Dangerous is drenched in the cinematic melancholy that Christine does oh so well, adding her own European take on the heartache contained within his tale of isolation and infidelity. It's beautiful. 

"I was wanted to cover one song by Michael, but it's quite a heavy burden," she says. "He's quite tough to cover, so I just one that I could bring back to my own way of performing and singing. I chose the song 'Who Is It' because and it's really sad, and I thought I could make it even sadder - if that is possible."

She continues: "Because Michael is always really groovy with his sadness. Let's do this 'white girl, totally depressed sadness and still see if it grooves."
