In anticipation of their coming-of-age film Everything, Everything, star Amandla Stenberg has recorded a cover of Mac DeMarco’s “Let My Baby Stay” for the movie’s soundtrack,  transforming the soft acoustic ditty into a vibey jam with hypnotic synths and slow R’n’B grooves. For those who didn’t know the actor had musical talent, the track more than proves their prowess, their vocals as soulful and self-assured as a true professional.

The actor-activist-artist also released a neon-lit video for the cover that perfectly meshes with the track’s groovy vibes. Amandla unabashedly jams in rooms filled with rainbow glows amid a crowd of youngsters consumed with their phones, perhaps a commentary on the tech-obsessed climate of today and how we need to disconnect and feel life. It’s simple and effortless yet very aesthetically pleasing. Watch below.
