5 GREAT Covers of Millenials’ R&B Songs

Having songs originally sang by rappers and then being covered acoustically (or in any slower version), indeed gives you the different vibes, and sometimes different meanings. Every word from the lyrics speaks louder to you. Well, I am personally a huge fan of acoustic song, so it might sound like a bias. Yet, wait until you hear all these cover songs below.

Location by Khalid – Chase Eagleson

Lagu yang dibawakan hanya dengan iringan gitar, serta ditemani kicauan burung dan desiran suara pantai. Who wouldn’t send him the location? I would right away.

Hotline Bling by Drake – Megan Davies ft. Luke Preston

We all know how fun the original song is and I think no one can stand still while listening to the song. If you think that this acoustic arrangement will make it boring, you need to think again. Keduanya mampu membuat saya tetap menikmati lagu Hotline Bling (dengan tetap membayangkan gerakan ala Drake) hanya dengan iringan gitar!

How to Love by Lil Wayne – Jason Chen

Let’s have a lil throwback to this era! Do you ever realize how beautiful the song is? Saya pribadi baru mengerti arti di balik lagu ini setelah mendengar versi yang dibawakan oleh Jason Chen ini. Well, I don’t want to spoil, so why don’t you listen to it right away?

Watch Me (Whip/ Nae Nae) by Silentó – Tyler Ward & Two Worlds

Meski versi akustik tidak dapat membantu saya untuk mengerti makna lebih dalam dari lagu ini, namun patut diakui, this whole new arrangement is so ear-catching! Siapa yang sangka lagu sesederhana ini mampu dirombak sedemikian rupa? Nampaknya, para pendengar masih dapat tetap melakukan gerakan whip/nae nae dengan aransemen akustik ini.

I Fall Apart by Post Malone – Kodaline

I have heard the original song by Post Malone. Yet, having this song covered by Kodaline, it feels like the song is breaking my heart all over again. Kodaline melejit berkat lagu andalannya ‘High Hopes’. Namun, band asal Iralndia ini mampu menggiring setiap pendengar untuk turut larut dalam setiap lagu yang dibawakannya. And, they did the same to this Post Malone’s ‘I Fall Apart’. Dibuka dengan vokalis Steve Garrigan yang menyanyikan lirik tanpa iringan musik, kemudian disusul dengan melodi gitar lembut. Well, I hope no one takes the phone and calls the one who broke their heart 😉
