Monday Cover-Up: Week 6 feat. Arctic Monkeys
Welcome to Week 6 of Monday Cover-Up! This week we take a look at 1 current artist covering another, with great results.
The artist being covered today? None other than the current king of the hip-hop charts, Drake a.k.a. Wheelchair Jimmy.
The artist doing the covering? The favorite band of all-time of every hipster everywhere(and plenty of non-hipsters): Arctic Monkeys
The English rock band takes “Hold On, We’re Going Home,” Drake’s current chart-topper, and funk it up, Arctic Monkeys style. While the intent of the song generally remains the same, unlike last week’s cover feature, the Arctic Monkeys version is exponentially easier to dance to.
P.S. Frontman Alex Turner has some great shoes. I’d wear them everywhere, including to bed, if I could pull them off.
What are your thoughts? Are you a fan of the Arctic Monkeys imagining of “Hold On, We’re Going”? Is there another version you prefer? Let us know in the comments!
