Hear Miguel’s ‘Bennie and the Jets’ Cover

Miguel's just one of the artists (Fall Out Boy doing “Saturday Night’s Alright for Fighting"? Okay!) covering John in a tribute to Goodbye Yellow Brick Road for the album's 40th anniversary reissue. The song's less remix, more cover, aside from Miguel's ending plea ("I mean, where do you get a mohair suit, anyway?") with Wale adding a verse about the pitfalls of fame. And with that Elton John biopic just around the corner, the newly cast Tom Hardy should watch his back. Miguel can almost certainly pull off John's famous glasses collection more convincingly.
