Whoa, are we having déjà vu? Adam Lambert released his Trespassing remix cover art today (the EP will be available to purchase October 16 and pre-orders are being accepted now), but we were doing some serious double takes when we first peeped this image. Adam’s silhouette stands against a golden-yellow background with a wide-brimmed Stetson hat that casts an aura of mystery (and ’90s throwback style) over Glambert’s entire look—especially paired with those pitch-black aviators. We also have a LOVELY eyeful of supple black leather thanks to his high-collar, asymmetrical jacket (with the collar folded down), but it’s all a little too familiar for our taste. We racked our brains and—A HA!—FINALLY remembered what this reminds us of… Ms. Azealia Banks!

I know, I know, you’re thinking, “Whaaaa? How do Adam and Azealia look ANYTHING alike?” But seriously, just peep the cover art from her 1991 EP (above) and tell us how they don’t look alike. They are totally KILLING. IT. in their Grace Jones-inspired get-up, and we so aren’t mad at that. The beautiful thing about this entire look is that they are channeling one of the most iconic androgynous female models of our time—and she totally proves that her edgy look can go both ways. In fact, we’re tearing up just looking at these. But tell us—who do you think channeled Grace Jones’ ’90s look better: Adam Lambert or Azealia Banks? Let us know in the comments below!
