Jeremih takes on Adele’s “Rumour Has It” for Billboard Mashup Mondays. The R&B crooner strips down the British singer’s soulful song off her multi-platinum album 21, showing off his skills on the drums and keyboard with his guitar-laced remake. He even throws in melodies from Vanilla Ice’s “Ice Ice Baby,” Queen and David Bowie’s “Under Pressure,” and his own hit “Down on Me.”
“You probably have never heard this type of sound from my voice, so I just wanted to touch it and see what I could do with it,” the 23-year-old Chicago native told Billboard. “I think [Adele is] one of the hottest new breakthrough artists. I love her sound of music. It kinda gives me the old Motown sound of music that I grew up listening to.”
Now that Jeremih’s covered Adele, can we get Adele to cover “Birthday Sex,” please?
