Aaliyah lives on in the latest cover of one of her most popular songs.

Los Angeles singer Banks is the latest to put her own personal spin on the late singer’s 1998 Grammy-nominated hit, “Are You That Somebody?” from the Dr. Doolittle soundtrack.

The alternative-R&B singer perfomed the track during a stop by BBC Radio 1’s Live Lounge, where other artists have also pulled off incredible covers, such as Bastille doing Miley Cyrus and 30 Seconds to Mars taking on Rihanna.
