It makes sense that ZZ Ward chose Frank Ocean's "Thinkin Bout You" from this year's Undercover list; after all, her Eleven Roses mixtape featured nods to Tyler The Creator, Childish Gambino, and Freddie Gibbs—she's familiar with smoothness and hip-hop. Covering the song is no simple feat, but Ward and her band do it soulful justice. Ward's debut album, Til The Casket Drops, came out late last year. and she'll appear at Sasquatch this year, along with a bunch of other festivals. Full dates can be found here.
