Here are two versions of Faye Wong’s (王菲) rare 1994 live cover of 4 Non Blondes’ 1993 hit, “What’s Up?” The mp3s were ripped from YouTube videos. The first two are Faye’s, and the third is the 4 Non Blondes’ version. Even though the quality of the recordings for Faye’s performance is very poor, you can still hear the qualitative difference that she brings to the song. I think Faye’s is much more exciting, vibrant.
