"Your Daily POPculture Re-up"

Dopeness: Jeremih Mashes Adele, David Bowie and Vanilla Ice (Video)

Jeremih showcases his musical talent in Billboard.com’s Billboard Mashup Mondays.  During the clip, Jeremih plays the drums and pianos while singing a cover of Adele’s “Rumour Has It,” the second single from the multi-platinum 21 (co-written and produced by One Republic’s Ryan Tedder).  Towards the end, he adds in covers of Vanilla Ice’s “Ice, Ice Baby,” Queen and David Bowie’s “Under Pressure,” and his own “Down on Me.”

He tells Billboard:

“You probably have never heard this type of sound from myvoice, so I just wanted to touch it and see what I could do with it…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.”

I think this is great.  Rarely do we get to see just how talented pop artists are; props to Billboard for giving them this type of outlet.  Watch below:
