Aramide's cover of Mary J Blige is bringing shivers down our spine
It is funny that when you speak to some artistes about covers, they have such a dismissive tone when covers are, instead of being evidence of inability to create, evidence of respect and your talent.
We have lately stumbled upon so many covers we like, like Lindsey's cover of 'Palaver' by Fela and Bibi's cover of 'Redemption Song' by Bob Marley, and now we have a new treat to add to the list- Aramide's cover of Mary J Blige's "I'm going down".
Infact, we have so many new covers that we might have to re-do this article about our favourite covers we put up recently. Check that out here
Back to this cover.
We didn't want to check it out here at the studio at first. What if she doesn't kill it?!
Happy to say, she did. And in her distinct voice. Check it out!
