What to do when your musical efforts have been shunned on mass? Why, of course, you cover an R&B classic. One by Aaliyah at that.
This, unfortunately, was the rationale of former B2K star Omarion, who today released his own rendition of the late diva’s ‘One In A Million’.
Ironically, his version was just that – yet for all the wrong reasons. Listen, at your risk, below. And yes, it’s as shocking as you think…
Criminal. Nasal. Nonsense.
Omari sounded like he recorded this abomination on his Blackberry while taking a dump. Lord knows he sure took one all over the song, and Aaliyah’s legacy while at it. Proving, yet again, that there are some things best left untouched. I mean, surely if more capable acts steer clear of such material, it’d register as a ‘No Go Zone’ to the Omarion’s of the world?
Supposedly paying homage, Mr Grandberry should done just that by not recording this rubbish in the first place. A mess.
