During a live performance on Thursday (Feb. 17), for CoverNation, the Texas-born teen shared an explosive solo cover of the famed track while playing a cream-colored electric guitar. The up-and-coming songstress, born Taylor Gayle Rutherford, never skipped a beat and delivered every powerful moment of the song with cool and commanding energy.
GAYLE took to her Instagram story to share her cover and tag Morissette and referred to her as “the love of our lives.” Last month Rutherford dropped her latest single, “Ur Just Horny,” which serves an angsty post-breakup anthem. Additionally, GAYLE dropped the “emotional” remix for “Ur Just Horny” on February 11.
The new cover video is almost like a teaser of what GAYLE is capable of in a live capacity. The artist is set to take on the live realm as she embarks on her own tour in March and as she joins Tate McRae and AJR on their upcoming 2022 tours.
GAYLE’s “abcdefu” has held a spot on the Billboard Hot 100 for 12 weeks now, peaking at No. 6 and spending this past week at No. 7.
