I’m 100% obsessed with Reema’s “Sunny Afternoon.” Her delivery of The Kinks’ hit felt so natural that it took me a second to realize that it wasn’t one of her original tracks.

She carries the melody to new heights, and she does it so effortlessly, it’s almost impossible to imagine anyone else performing this song at all.
Seriously, I’m obsessed, and you will be, too. Check it out here:
