Dutch soul diva Edsilia Rombley and iconic British rock star Skin show their vocal strengths in a duet of Skunk Anansie’s 1996 hit Weak.
Eurovision veteran Edsilia Rombley recently released her version of Weak by legendary rock band Skunk Anansie, featured on the artists’ forthcoming album The Piano Ballads Volume 2.
Skunk Anansie’s frontwoman Skin (Deborah Anne Dyer) was pleasantly surprised by Edsilia’s version and approached the Dutch singer for a unique duet. Yesterday evening, in the talk show RTL Late Night, Edsilia and Skin presented their joint version of Weak and talked to host Twan Huys.
Skin was very impressed with Edsilia’s interpretation of Weak, noticing how she brought the sadness beneath the song’s apparent anger to life.

Edsilia Rombley was very happy with the performance, as she shared on Instagram:
Eurovision dream couple?
This duet begs the question: would a collaboration between Edsilia Rombley and Skin be an option for the Eurovision stage, either for the Netherlands or the United Kingdom?
In any case, their unique voices have proved to blend very well.

Edsilia Rombley also performed a cover of the hit song One last time by popstar Ariana Grande:
