YUNGBLUD mixes Drake, Arctic Monkeys in soulful cover
This gave us goosebumps.May 3, 2019
YUNGBLUD has released a cover of him mashing up two songs that couldn’t be more different, and it’s absolutely beautiful.
The artist combined Drake’s “Best I Ever Had” and the Arctic Monkeys’ “Do I Wanna Know” while playing the piano.
His raw vocals on the cover gave us serious goosebumps. You can watch the full video of the song below.
YUNGBLUD just dropped a stripped-down version of “Loner” from his debut album 21st Century Liability, which dropped last summer.
“I wanted to just get in the studio with the boys and totally strip it back,” YUNGBLUD said of the new version. “This is such an important record for me so I was buzzin to bring it back to something raw.”
You can listen to that below.
