Have you seen Black Widow yet? If you have and you’re like me, one of the things you wondered as you exited the theater was ‘Who sung that Nirvana cover early in the movie?’

During the opening credits of Black Widow, you’ll hear a song that sounds vaguely familiar, but not how you remember it. It isn’t until you hear some of the lyrics that you realize that it’s the 90s anthem ‘Smells Like Teen Spirit’ from Nirvana. So, who’s singing the Black Widow version?

Her name is Malia J., she’s a Hawaiian singer-songwriter, and her cover of ‘Smells Like Teen Spirit’ is quickly becoming a hit, thanks to its inclusion in Black Widow. You can watch the music video below:
