A new trend in the music business seems to be for singers cover other artist’s songs.
It’s usually a song that’s popular at the moment or vocally challenging. Typically, artists cover songs as a promotional tactic, especially when they have a project such as an album or a new single on the way. Some artists have wowed everyone with their cover; and others have made a complete fool out of themselves. Since we like to remain positive, we will focus on the good covers.
