These Trap Covers of Pop Songs Are the Best Things We’ve Heard All Week
Bet you never thought you’d hear Taylor Swift like this.
Some of the most brilliant minds on Twitter have teamed up to bring us #TrapCovers, with everything from “The Star-Spangled Banner” to “Hey Jude” to “Don’t Stop Believin'” getting a makeover. Nathan Zed tweeted “we all boutta do this in retaliation to the white covers turnin party songs into elevator music, prepare,” (see: every white person with an acoustic guitar covering “Formation”) and it’s taken off since.
The trending #TrapCovers were started by @VictorPopeJr, @ILLCapitano94, @NathanZed, and @MeechOnMars, with more and more people joining in. Zed also said, “lowkey we boutta make a whole EP of trap covers of just the whitest songs,” which we can only hope for.
Take a look at some of the best #TrapCovers, below, with more right this way.
