Nick Cannon Does Great Things, But This Cover Of SZA’s “The Weekend” Isn’t One Of Them
Nick Cannon’s many talents have allowed him to give the world entertaining and informative content, but his latest rollout of covers are questionable to say the least.
Released Monday (Jan. 22), the three-song EP Singing With Dream Girls features covers from R&B’s most promising acts like SZA, Kehlani and H.E.R. As an homage to the artists, the entertainer created his version of their most popular tracks, including SZA’s “The Weekend.”
With a lot of autotune and salutes to side chicks, Cannon sings about his roster of women. “I’m so excited about the buzz generated by my new single ‘Dream Girl’ that I thought it would be dope to cover a few of my favorite songs by ladies that I am currently inspired by,” Cannon told Billboard. “Two of them being ladies that I have mentored, Kehlani and H.E.R.”
Perhaps it’s the changing vocal tones of the record, but the cover isn’t as enjoyable as his take on H.E.R.’s “Facts” or Kehlani’s “In My Feelings.”
Fans of Cannon and SZA didn’t waste any time reacting to the track on Twitter.
