FlashbackFriday: No Diggity x Blackstreet x Ed Sheeran & Passenger x Chet Faker
Flashback Friday is back with arguably one of the greatest R’n’B songs of all times by the legendary Blackstreet. Produced by Dr Dre this is the epitome of an old skool banger. The Hype Williams video has turned into somewhat of a classic.
However in recent months I have discovered some pretty sick covers of it also from people you would not expect. FifiandJules is a radio show in Australia, if you have time have a look at their YouTube channel, their range of acoustic music is pretty dope from artists all over. Ed Sheeran & Passenger pull off the cover with a pretty slick mash up at the end with Thrift Shop
Below is the main surprise, Chet Faker is a new face on the music scene and has released an EP with this cover on it. This for me is one of the best covers I’ve ever heard for any song, his raw voice totally transforms this song and makes it his own and watch out for the lil’ drop at the end.
