New Music: Shanell – ‘Love Is a Losing Game’ [Amy Winehouse Cover]

Shanell

Shanell pays tribute to the late Amy Winehouse with “Love Is a Losing Game,” the only cover included on her mixtape Nobody’s Bitch. Prior to her passing, the Young Money singer expressed her admiration for the British soulstress.

“I love the way she sings these great conceptual songs, but it has some hip-hop element to it,” Shanell previously told Rap-Up.com. “Her attitude is just so funky, but she’s singing songs as though she’s this straight narrow singer.”

Hear her take on Amy’s Mark Ronson-produced classic.

    Ont like the phrasing. Good effort tho. You can’t just sing an Amy Winehouse song. You gotta feel it all over. The only passable cover of an Amy song I’ve heard is Melanie Fiona’s Wake Up Alone cover but alot of that has to do with her tone.

    I’ll wait until I hear the tape to judge Shanell. I’ve liked some of her songs.

    Because you can sing in tune, don’t mean you can be covering people’s songs!!! Especially Amy’s.

    It’s amazing but she didn’t do no justice to the song… I don’t think anybody could cover Amy and do it better, so why try?

    @Be3000, who said she was trying to do it better? amy’s voice was unique so no one can touch that, she’s just paying tribute

    guys give her a break she did well, perfectly layed down piece of track, we never expect people to outshine a legendary artist song they cover.
