Kings Of Leon’s Selena Gomez Cover Might Make You Sweat

Watch the band put a sexy spin on ‘Hands to Myself’

During Kings of Leon’s recent BBC Live Lounge performance, frontman Caleb Followill was quite visibly sweaty. It could’ve been from the lights or even from nerves, but judging by his band’s cover selection, I’d venture to guess his perspiration was a byproduct of SEXINESS.

Three years after covering Robyn’s “Dancing On My Own” in the Love Lounge, KOL returned with another pop hit: Selena Gomez’s “Hands to Myself.” Their version is less playful than Sel’s — they don’t bother with the gasping and sighing background vocals, and Caleb wisely doesn’t even attempt the amazing lyric “I mean I could, but why would I want to?” But the cover’s still every bit as sultry... which isn’t that surprising, considering these are the guys who once gave us “Sex on Fire.”

Kings of Leon are currently promoting their seventh album WALLS, which just earned a coveted cosign from Sel’s pal Taylor Swift.
