Antony & the Johnsons couldn’t be more different from the pop star, Beyoncé, but they do have one thing in common. They will now be the two artists who will have released the song, ‘Crazy in Love,” only with a dramatic change in performance and reinterpretation.

Mercury prize-winning UK act, Antony & the Johnsons, are known for their folk chamber and almost cabaret style infused with pop melodies. So if you think it’s odd of them to tackle a Beyoncé song, you’ll learn soon enough that re-invention is what the group does best.The tempo is slowed down and the accompaniment is replaced with the gorgeous sound of a full orchestra, but what is most grasping about their performance with Netherlands’ Metropole Orchestra is the way the lyrics, “Got me hoping you’ll save me right now” are sung.

Astonishingly amazing! Check it out below and let us know what you think!
