For The Boombox’s Live Bytes series, Ms. Monae (and a shy, soft-spoken Esperanza Spalding) introduce GianArthur to a crowd gathered at New York City’s MSR Studios. A poised GianArthur launches into his story of lost love, ‘Contrition’ but he precedes the bitter tale with some sweetness in the form of a brief cover of Lauryn Hill‘s ‘The Sweetest Thing’ from the ‘Love Jones’ movie soundtrack.
