If it hadn’t been for a trip to Chicago last year and time spent listening to the radio in a rental car, it’s likely that I would never have heard Lil Wayne’s “How To Love.”
Though the song hit #5 on the Billboard Hot 100 (and #2 on the R&B chart), Weezy’s substantial oeuvre isn’t exactly on my radar, with perhaps the exception of his feature on Madonna’s woeful “Revolver,” from her 2009 hits compilation, Celebration.
But there was something special about “How To Love,” a showcase for the surprisingly tender side of the über-tattooed Lil Wayne. New York City dream-pop duo School Of Seven Bells must have found the song similarly endearing, as Alejandra Deheza and Benjamin Curtis have now covered Weezy’s hit as a free download.
School Of Seven Bells’ latest album, Ghostory, is out now.
