These Two Sisters Do A Stunning Medley Of '1989', Plus Four Other Noteworthy '1989' Covers — VIDEO
Uh, has Taylor Swift seen this yet? Because these two sisters who sang a mash-up medley of 1989 just knocked it out of the park. Abby and Audrey, also known as the MAJAM Sisters, did an effortlessly cool medley of "Blank Space," "Style," "I Know Places," "Bad Blood," and the elusive bonus track hit "Wonderland," which got way less credit than it deserved for being arguably one of the best songs to come out of this latest round of Swift tunes. What's remarkable about their performance, though, is that it isn't just a medley—the themes from different songs weave beautifully in and out of each other, matching perfectly in ways that, even as an aggressive Swiftie, I never would have guessed.
Although these sisters are totally boss at this cover on musical merit alone, there is something to be said for the idea that siblings sing better together. Not only do their voices tend to blend in the same timbres, but growing up in the same house and hearing the same kind speech from their parents and general environment means that their vowels are more similar to each other than people outside of their families. I only know this because I once harbored dreams of roping my own sisters into a girl band, but the good news is that the MAJAM Sisters are already carrying the banner for talented sisterhood for Swift fans everywhere.
This is, of course, far from the first medley of last year's hit album. YouTube duo Superfruit managed to get their own certifiably badass 1989 medley out within a week of the album's release (the internet sleeps for no man). Here is Abby and Aubrey's beautiful, bare bones version of the medley:
