So, every morning, my inboxes are FULL of new music from both major label and indie artists. My job as a tastemaker and media personality is to go thru them ALL, yes, ALL (or as many as we can) every day. Sometimes, we come across a video that takes us to another video and so on… gotta love social media!
As we were going through a few covers, DJ WizKid mentioned we should feature some of these artists and see who people think had the best covers of some of the best records out now. I said, let’s not just make it records but, the best of whatever is trending now. Introducing, #YouTubeYouChoose!
Our first #YouTubeYouChoose features John Legend’s “All Of Me,” check the videos after the jump and let us know which cover you like best on Twitter or leave a comment on our video on YouTube using the hashtag: #YouTubeYouChoose
Future said he wanted a video featuring the likes of “old Hype Williams’ video girls” and he pretty much got it. Filmed primarily in black and white, the visuals for the Honest cut flip back and forth between shots of the rappers standing alone on the beach and close-ups of women rolling around in the sand.
Even though Future and Yeezy don’t appear in the video together, the it comes together nicely.
Look out for Future’s sophomore album, Honest, dropping this Tuesday.
