Eastside - Ellie (Don't X Loyal Cover)

10/04/2014 Tunes For Loons 0 Comments

Indie white people covering rap songs about hos is not a new development. Remember Bastille's cover of What Would You Do? Florence singing Take Care? Ben Folds heartfelt rendition of Bitches Aint Shit? Regardless of the talents of these people, this is mostly hilarious. Exhibit A: "I ain't got a job now / We're just smoking rock now" -- British hipster. Dear Mr. Bastille, If you're smokin "rock" , I'm pretty sure it's ironically. White people suck!!  Even so, these covers usually sound amazing.*** Eastside's take on Chris Brown's "Loyal" is no different. This girl possesses vocal abilities similar to Ellie Goulding, and sings about hos and smokin weed beautifully. It kind of reminds me of Birdy too. I also enjoy the clarity of the lyrics that Chris Brown has previously mumbled. Who knew he delivered poetry such as "I don't fuck with broke bitches / I wanna do drugs / Fuck all the rachets " So now we've established C Breezy will put out if you're ugly and rich. Also PS this is a mashup with an Ed Sheeran song. Smh.


*** Here is a wishlist of rap songs I wish various white people to cover

 1. ABBA - 212
2. James Blake - Tom Ford
3.Paul Simon - Drop It Like It's Hot
 4. Arcade Fire - Mo $$ Mo problems

Actually pretty sure the last one would be terrible. If you have other ideas plz get in touch with me . We can form a committee .
