Anderson .Paak has lended his smooth vocals to an even smoother cover of the biggest song of 2019, Lil Nas X and Billy Ray Cyrus’ ‘Old Town Road’.
Paak took to BBC’s Live Lounge to perform the cover, while also performing drums as he delivered the song’s inescapable verses. He turned the country rap hit into a super soulful and super sexy jazz-inspired crooner, and it is fantastic.
‘Old Town Road’ wasn’t the only song Paak performed, though. He also performed his original track ‘Jet Black’, taken from his 2019 album Ventura.
It hasn’t been too long since Paak was in the country, playing last year’s round of Falls Festival, but let’s hope next time he’s here he delivers this burning cover.
Listen to both performances below.
