POP ETC Cover Whitney Houston’s ‘How Will I Know’
The death of pop diva Whitney Houston was a definitive mainstream music news moment of 2012. Perhaps in homage to the late singer, indie rock act POP ETC has shared a sweet, stripped-down cover of the singer’s ’80s hit ‘How Will I Know.’
The video features POP ETC singer Chris Chu waltzing through the Times Square-like streets of a busy Tokyo intersection, surrounded by people and the hustle and bustle of life. You might need a Dramamine when watching those parts, since the camera spins and messes with your equilibrium. Other parts of the vid find Chu walking in a park, enjoying a much more subdued and quieter setting.
You can’t deny the song is crazy catchy, whether sung by a belter or an indie act. POP ETC’s version packs additional wallop, no matter where Chu performs it.
