Canadian singer/rapper Drake re-entered the Billboard Twitter chart on November 18 2014 with a track called “November 18”. The date refers to the first time he met Lil’ Wayne, with whom he has toured a lot and is currently recording.
The charts reflect the number of people that referred to the track on that day, an indication that it was becoming popular.
The track is from his mixtape “So Far Gone”. It’s an interesting look in the rear-view mirror, with lots of moody rapping and little of the smooth soulful singing that is now becoming trademark. The two voices in the track are heavily processed over a very bare drums/keyboard backing.
Although it was never released as a single, the track remains one of Drake’s most popular.
If you are struggling with singing Justin Bieber songs, check this. The Voice singer Vedo has covered “All That Matters”.
It’s interesting to note his use of the tremolo that is so distinctive to Justin Bieber and also the ease with which he switches to to his “head” voice (more here).
Vedo is a young American singer, songwriter and entertainer known for his performances on season four of NBC’s popular talent competition, The Voice. Born and raised in Benton Harbor, Michigan Vedo began singing at the age of 9 when his mother discovered his vocal abilities.
Vedo later became one of the top finalists on The Voice and writes songs for major label recording artists and acclaimed music producer Troy Taylor. You can find out more about him on Vedo’s ReverbNation page.
So, what do yo think? Does Vedo’s version make it easier for you or are you still as intimidated? Let us know. If it’s still difficult, maybe you should try another singer, as Bieber is very affected. If you like the soulful feel, go back to other singers that Vedo admires, such as Sam Cooke.
