Cover, Pop, Videos | CJ Holland — Tuesday [Cover]

Posted by on March 1, 2015

CJ Holland, a 21-year-old with a voice like silk and a classy style, is a name to know if you pride yourself on staying ahead of the blog curve. He’s clearly developed himself in the vein of pop darlings like JT and Bruno, and has been working on his debut album with the likes of Pharrell, Ne-Yo, and even Quincy Jones.

Recently, he’s performed a series of covers (“Uptown Funk, “I’m Not the Only One,” and “Thinking Out Loud”) that have continued to impress and showcase his range. This week he’s added a bit more of an inventive touch to his cover of “Tuesday,” as producer One Love (of Kinetics & One Love fame, primarily) provides an immersive, trap-infused interpolation of the beat, and CJ rewrites the verses, making them successfully his own while still retaining the original’s staccato flow and melodic touch.

This tune is pure artwork. It combines elements of film score and futuristic glitches – it has no set tempo. The fellas over at PINEO & LOEB have flipped a delicious cover of the original ‘Y.O.L.O.’ by the Strokes and this is addictive. Plug in some headphones for this one-way ticket into space and strap on a seatbelt, because some turns are just unpredictable.

Cover | A$AP Rocky – F*ckin’ Problem (Xavier Dunn Cover)

Xavier
We’re betting you’ve never heard of Xavier Dunn, because before this, neither had we. I’d call this a cover, but it’s more of a reimagining than a standard cover. Australian based artist Xavier Dunn takes A$AP’s huge 2013 hit and turns it into an elegant rendition that even A$AP would respect.
