Yeah, I know, after reading that title, you’re probably thinking the same thing I am. So what’s the deal? Well, it seems a handful of indie artists from across the pond have somehow been brought together to cover a boat load of (more precisely, 20) mainstream Hip Hop and R & B songs. Read on…

The result is sometimes impressive and other times quite comical, but the artists involved don’t seem to mind sometimes even breaking into fits of laughter, forgetting the lyrics, or just choking up. Here is a preview of the songs that have been covered:

  • Lail Arad covering Salt ‘N’ Peppa’s “Let’s Talk About Sex”
  • Jay Jay Pistolet covering M.I.A.’s “Paper Planes”
  • Paloma Faith and Josh Weller covering Kelly Rowland’s “Dilemma”
  • Jaine Green covering DJ Jazzy Jeff’s “Fresh Prince” (see below)
  • and probably my favourite: Kate Nash covering Gwen Stefani’s “Hollaback Girl” with a pinch of Queen’s “Another One Bites the Dust”
