Yes, you read correctly
It isn't bad cover in all honesty, but come on, that's like The Game covering 2Pac's California Love or a bunch of artists from the UK doing Juicy... oh wait
The video I actually wanted to use as an example of a poor cover has been made private on YouTube. That video was Roll Deep (currently #1 on UK singles chart) rapping over Wu-Tang's classic 'C.R.E.A.M.' - utter shambles.
Anyway, back to the point of this post, it wasn't a terrible cover, wasn't exactly good either, but it is an untouchable song which then kind of gives the impression that it is a terrible cover. The-Dream isn't exactly everyone's favourite as it is. Didn't The-Dream see the Facebook group in protest against the Queen Beyonce covering this very song? What did he expect? I wonder what people would have said if Trey Songz did it...
Examples of songs that shouldn't have been touched
I went on to rate Blue, but it took me a long time to get over this the second single
Bombdiggy is ridiculously huge, but once again this second single was a tough one to get over
Blazing Squad, Balzing Squad, Blazing Squad. Unlike the others, my first impression of these little punks was this tune. They never recovered. To this day, I'd still line them up and spud each ones chin for this manslaughter. They actually thought this was good? I don't even care that it went to number 1; we all know a bunch of rubbish songs get there once in a while.
