We certainly hope your holiday weekend was restful and full of good food and company. As you prepare to return to the usual grind as everything returns to normalcy come Monday. But we’re looking to provide you with some tunage for your late Sunday evening, and we’re going an international route this time. So here are some covers of songs from abroad, along with the occasional translation of an English song. Welcome to the 1st week of December, everyone!
Angeli (of Blush) Covers “Hawak Kamay” by Yeng Constantino
Wow! It was another big week for music videos as we have 13 to share with you today. And better yet, it was a fairly strong showing overall with a number of very solid visual releases to accompany your music. It would behoove you to take a gander and make your way through this list, there are some great videos to find, for sure.
HeeSun Lee x MC Jin – “I Break Stereotypes”
HeeSun & Jin on the same track? Let’s just say I came in with high hopes. And well, let’s just say I did not walk away disappointed. And I haven’t heard Jin sound this hungry since he was on 106 & Park! Two MCs that push each other to kill it on one track? I’m on board with that. Well played, this was our biggest pleasant surprise of the week.
Andrew Huang – “The Coldest Darkness”
Whoa. This just may be the eeriest video Andrew Huang has ever dropped. I’m most impressed in how effective his use of the simple color scheme. His upcoming album shares the title of this track, and this is a positive indicator of things to come.
Jazmin – “You”
All I have to say is it’s about time for this sisterly quartet to start making some big moves. It’s been a number of years since we first heard about the group but they seemed to fall out of the spotlight for a while. Well, this ain’t a bad way to step back into it. “You” is off their just released 90′s Baby EP.
So what do we mean when we say a-Tunes Meta Covers? These are songs and videos of a-Tunes artists covering other a-Tunes artists. In other words, it’s a double dip. It’s an ode to the community, a tip of the hat to other artists in the scene. It’s artists showing love to other like-minded artists, from both now and the past… and we respect that. So enjoy this round-up, it’s been a while since we’ve gone meta! A few artist in particular absolutely killllled their covers.
About a month ago, we announced that Megan Lee had officially signed with Kim Tae Woo’s (of KPOP’s g.o.d. fame) label, Soulshop Entertainment. One such project to come out of that partnership is her feature on Kim Tae Woo’s single, “오빠 (Oppa)”. A music video was recently released for the song, and though it’s a bit on the low-budget side, it’s a silly and fun watch to promote a breezy and laid-back tune.
Huge news for the teenage Youtube singer, Megan Lee. After spending much of the past couple years in South Korea, away from her home in Southern California, it has been announced that she has officially signed with Soulshop Entertainment. The label is headed by Kim Tae Woo, the former lead vocal to the KPOP group G.O.D. Megan has been hard at work in trying to breakthrough over there, and this is a huge step in the right direction for her. Congratulations, Megan!
We hope you all have had a great Christmas day/evening so far! Here are the last of the Christmas themed covers and remixes! Perhaps a few will trickle in here and there but this will be surely close to the last of it. We hope you are staying warm and surrounded by your loved ones this holiday season.
We’re going to let the fairer sex have the spotlight today. The following collection of covers are all done by female artists who are completely unaccompanied. The genres range from Pop to Acoustic to R&B to CCM. I’m sure you’ll find something you’ll enjoy jamming and singing along to.
Here are 8 new covers for your Friday to kick start your weekend. As you can tell by the title, only cover music videos are included in this batch. In other words, every video in this round-up are not live covers but rather songs that were pre-recorded and then used to make a music video with above average production values. The only quasi odd video out is a dance number by Jay Park. Enjoy!
Jay Park x Haw (Prepix) Dance to “Get It Shawty” by Lloyd
Sam Tsui x Kevin Olusola x Kurt Schneider Cover “One More Night” by Maroon 5
Legaci x Rockus Cover “Titanium” by David Guetta x Sia
We present a little international flavor for you this late evening/early morning. All of these songs are originally song by artists around the world, with the exception of one North American Pop hit that was remade into Chinese. So we hope you enjoy your aural trip around the world with these 8 covers/remixes! (And yes, some “Gangnam Style” remixes are in here too… much to the chagrin of yours truly)
Dawen Sings a Chinese Rendition of “Call Me Maybe” by Carly Rae Jepsen
Today’s round-up is a collection of covers and remixes of three of the biggest names in radio in 2012, Justin Bieber, Carly Rae Jepsen and One Direction. You’ve undoubtedly heard most of these songs, especially since they’ve been nearly impossible to escape. Our artists have put their own spin on it, and we’ve pulled one video from each batch, below. After the break you can find the rest, grouped by original artist.
