I still don’t know how I feel about Drake executive producing Aaliyah’s new album. I get that he’s really into her and may be her #1 fan, but he didn’t know her. I love 40’s slow, melodic beats and it should go well with her vocals, like in Enough Said, but truthfully, as much as I like Drake, I think his raps are going to ruin the album (just like it did this song).
I wrote a post a while ago saying that I wasn’t looking forward to Drake’s new album “Take Care”. But, after actually listening to it, I was definitely wrong. This album sounds very similar to his mixtape “So Far Gone”, which was in my opinion, one of the best mixtapes of all time. I guess I’m more of a Noah “40” Shebib fan than I previously thought.
On to this cover. I favourite track off of Take Care is actually “Over my Dead Body”, which features the lovely Chantal Kreviazuk. Unfortunately I couldn’t find a cover of that track to do it justice. I did, however, find this cover of “Headlines” by a duo called VanJess. They give a female perspective on Drizzy’s hit track. I also LOVE their mix of Frank Ocean’s “Thinking About You” afterwards. Great work.
