Watch: Anna Calvi - "Naughty Girl" (Beyonce cover) live

Releasing her debut album little more than a year ago, British singer/songwriter/guitarist Anna Calvi seems to be taking her sweet time delivering a follow up. Instead she's packaged up single after single from the self-titled debut with some rather tasty goodies. Before the album, Calvi was most known for her take on "Jezebel" made famous by Edith Piaf, well it turns out the girl is just crazy good at covers. Whether it's Elvis Presley's "Surrender" or Leonard Cohen's "Joan of Arc", Anna Calvi's pretty much rocked them all. Well, in a recent live session for BBC Radio 1, Anna Calvi offered up one more doozy of a cover - Beyonce's "Naughty Girl". She imbues Beyonce's sass and sensuality with some rather dark textures and power - Calvi's version seems more of a sultry game of cat and mouse than Beyonce's come-hither sweet nothings whispered promise.
