It’s been 3 and a half months since OLWIK released his high-octane progressive house remix of ‘Come Follow’ by Sunnery James & Ryan Marciano. We’re happy to see him back in action and giving his fans more music. His cover of ‘Waiting For Love’ by Avicii takes the song in a completely different direction. At only 19 years old, OLWIK is already showing great maturity as a producer as he breaks temporarily from his progressive style and approaches this record with a pop rock sound. What’s more, he’s singing on the tune! The jack of all trades has a lot of signs pointing upward for his future so have this kid on your radar.

Cover, Pop | CJ Holland Covers Jason Derulo’s “Want To Want Me”

Posted by on March 19, 2015

CJ Holland is back with his latest cover as part of his new #CJWEEKLY series, and it’s the most fully articulated display of his sound and aesthetic that we’ve gotten thus far, for sure. While the cover game isn’t kind to many, and has lost some of its charm as a whole due to congestion in the form, CJ has found a way to extend his releases beyond karaoke; his influences and style here are clearly in effect, and One Love’s original production, too, adds a new flavor to the track is a definite help to his cause.

Derulo’s “Want To Want Me” was last week’s most added song to radio, so here’s where song choice comes into effect. His last cover was of “Tuesday,” a song that really was on its way out of radio, so while his unique approach to it still made it compelling, it wasn’t able to capitalize on the song’s catchiness since the melody’s interest had all but faded. Here, though, CJ makes his mark on a song that he knew was bound to be successful, and yet hasn’t already been engrained in its listeners in a particular way. Cover artists take notice.
