Canadian singer/songwriter Carly Rae Jepsen recently made a stop at Electric Lady Studios in New York City, where she took part in the Spotify Singles series. As part of the session, Jepsen decided to cover No Doubt’s hit single “Don’t Speak.” She also performed “Want You in My Room,” a track from her latest studio release Dedicated.

Jepsen’s rendition of “Don’t Speak” remained faithful to the original, but she still managed to leave her own stamp on the song. You can check the cover on YouTube and Spotify below.

“Don’t Speak” was part of No Doubt’s 1995 third studio album Tragic Kingdom, but ended up being released as a single in 1996. The track quickly became popular in both the U.S. and worldwide and is now considered the group’s staple song. It was nominated for Song of the Year at the 1998’s Grammy Award.

Carly Rae Jepsen released Dedicated in May, with the album receiving favorable reviews and reaching No.18 at US Billboard 200 charts and No.26 on UK Albums charts. Jepsen promoted the album with a tour across North America, wrapping up the journey in West Springfield in late September. She is scheduled to tour Asia and Australia by the end of the year.
