New Cover: Karmin


Questlove of The Roots pops up with an intriguing cameo in the new viral video from boy-girl covers duo Karmin, whose online reputation for generating offbeat versions of well-known pop hits is second to none.

This time Nicki Minaj’s ‘Super Bass’ got the Karmin treatment, which took the form of singer/rap genius Amy Renee firing off some fast rhymes and resonant vocals, ably assisted by harmonizing band mate Nick Noonan on keyboard. A laidback-looking Questlove, complete with ‘fro comb and aura of absolute cool, taps along on some electronic drum pads.

Watch and download Karmin’s ‘Super Bass’ rendition below. You can also shuffle through their back-catalogue of covers here on their site.
