ellie d. and Rando re-imagine Drake's 'Passionfruit' through a downtempo electronic lens

A celebrated staple of Drake‘s 2017 playlist, More Life, “Passionfruit” saw the rapper corner his romantic sentiments, and express them in the silky vocal tone that’s always provided a smooth contrast to his more rugged, fervently spat verses. The languid pace of the production and its inviting yet unimposing melody made for a minimalistic R&B construction that enabled Drake’s barefaced but dulcetly delivered lyrics to become the core focus. Indie pop singer-songwriter, ellie d., and independent producer, Rando, re-visualize “Passionfruit” in a chilled out cover that sees ellie d. and Rando electronically inflect the More Life inclusion.

Twinkling chords provide a pillowy opening to ellie d. and Rando’s re-imaginative effort. ellie d.’s wispy vocals ebb and flow atop an undulating, undergirding electronic construction. The pair’s take preserves the viscous pace of Drake’s original. A lush collection of chords gently rise near song’s end, to comprise ellie d. and Rando’s most intensive revision to “Passionfruit.” ellie d. and Rando’s approach evidences the duo’s ability to gently and organically convert “Passionfruit,” from one genre, to another.
