Muni Long’s chart-topping R&B single “Hrs and Hrs” has steadily become one of our favorite new songs of 2022, and Halle Bailey’s latest Instagram cover is proof that we’re not alone. “So obsessed with this song right now from @munilong ❤️✨,” Bailey captioned a video of herself singing a few verses of the song on Wednesday. Sitting in front of her phone, Bailey casually let out her inner songbird, delivering her angelic high notes and telling a sultry story with every verse.

“When you do what you do / I got power / You give me super power / Together the world could last for hours,” she sang, closing her eyes to dive into the melody and capture the emotion behind every word. In the words of Storm Reid, Bailey demonstrated major “TALENT”.

After making the rounds on TikTok and racking up over 7.6 million views on YouTube, “Hrs and Hrs” turned Long, formerly known as Priscilla Renea, into an overnight sensation. As Renea, the singer-songwriter has written songs for artists including Rihanna, Ariana Grande, and Mariah Carey. She even dipped her toes into the country music scene, releasing an album under the name Melrose, before launching her eight-song R&B album, Public displays of affection, in 2021.

The good news? There’s more to listen to from Long if you’re as obsessed with “Hrs and Hrs” as we are. The bad news? It’s unclear when his next album is on the way. But we’ll happily play the Bailey cover and the original version of “Hrs and Hrs” on repeat until we know more. Hear Bailey’s epic cover for yourself here.
