Nomi Ruiz, the charismatic frontwoman of Jessica 6, and the spellbinding voice of Hercules & Love Affair's debut album, is back in the limelight with a cover of George Michael's hit, "A Different Corner."

The sexy trans singer, who was a Out100 honoree in 2011 and became a muse to Nicola Formichetti (she appeared in his R-rated fashion film for Mugler, Brother of Arcadia), has partnered with Greek producer MANSTA to give a refresh to the now-classic 1986 track.
Carried by Ruiz's soaring vocals, George Michael's ballad turns into an infectious mid-tempo banger, perfect to keep you bumping on those long winter nights.
In addition, Jessica 6 will be releasing a new EP, The Capricorn, and perform at Gramercy Theatre, in New York City, on December 26, with supporting acts Cakes Da Killa and DJ Eli Escobar. Get your tickets!
