Danielle Bradbery’s Cover of Post Malone’s ‘Psycho’ Is a Stunner [Watch]
Danielle Bradbery is rounding out her Yours Truly: 2018 covers project by sharing her take on rapper Post Malone's hit "Psycho." The country singer's take on the song amplifies the ethereal quality of Malone and Ty Dolla $ign's original track.
Accompanied by a pianist, guitarist and cellist, Bradbery's tender vocals turn "Psycho" from a radio hit into something more. The song originally appeared on Malone's 2018 album Beerbongs & Bentleys; written by Malone, Tyrone Griffin Jr. and Louis Bell, the song has been certified three times platinum and hit No. 1 in June of 2018.
Bradbery isn't the first country artist to share a take on Malone's "Psycho": In the fall of 2018, Michael Ray offered up his own cover of the song for the Spotify Sessions series. For her Yours Truly: 2018 project, Bradbery also covered country star Kacey Musgraves' "Slow Burn" and pop star Ariana Grande's "God Is a Woman."
“I grew up listening to all kinds of music, from country to R&B and hip-hop, even Hispanic music with my mom’s side of the family, and all of those influences have impacted my own art," Bradbery explains. "Incredible music was released across all genres this year, so I wanted to mark this moment in time with my own versions of some of my favorites."
Bradbery released a single featuring Thomas Rhett, "Goodbye Summer," in August (a solo version of the song, "Hello Summer," appears on Bradbery's 2017 album I Don't Believe We've Met). In 2019, Bradbery will be on the road with Kane Brown, for his 2019 Live Forever Tour.
