Rising English R&B singer Mabel's been on our radar ever since the release of her ardent debut single "Know Me Better" last year -- and she just continues to impress, as this video of her covering Destiny Child's "Say My Name" at Brighton's Great Escape Festival last month demonstrates.

Accompanied by a new set of whirly-gig synths and a thick, viscous bassline, Mabel's bold take on the early aughts classic is a nice update that reflects a contemporary R&B subscene dramatically changed by experimental electronics and whimsical, dance-leaning production -- which makes sense, as she is Neneh Cherry and Massive Attack affiliate Cameron McVey's daughter. Watch her performance for yourself below.
