Karmin Softens Nicki’s Super Bass, Fails

3 Jun

We like the cover band Karmin around here. Their “Look At Me Now” cover was on repeat for days, and it’s because the lady sings it better than the original. That’s how covers work.

But you’ve got to snort some cocaine confidence if you think you can do something better than Nicki Minaj. Like, you should be high, or a musical genius. (Ask T-Swift.)  Which is why I was shocked and slightly embarrassed when Karmin tried to cover “Super Bass.” Not only does the cover fail in replicating Nicki’s stalk-your-office rap style, it also just gets it wrong. You can’t take a song about a kick-ass bass and soften it. It’s no good. Like a mayonnaise sandwich. Gross.

This post is brought to you by Rachel, who suggests Karmin lay off the cocaine and try a Gaga cover instead…..
