Nomi Ruiz of Jessica 6 and Greek producer MANSTA have teamed up for a cover of George Michael’s “A Different Corner”, out today digitally via Park Side Records. Their heart-pounding rendition began after MANSTA’s remix of the track caught Ruiz’s attention and he in turn asked her to take on the vocal. The result is a dancefloor slaying take on the classic. Listen to it where it premired on Out and here.

The EP is the follow up to 2011’sSee the Light album, which featured the singles “White Horse” and the duet with Antony “Prisoner of Love”.
