Covers aren’t always a bad thing. Sometimes, an artist can breathe new life into a familiar track and make it something completely new. And that’s okay! In fact, it’s really awesome. That’s what these 10 artists, including Yael Naim, Florence Welch and Jack Johnson, have done with these songs. They all managed to make these tracks their own and give us 10 more unexpectedly awesome covers.
1. Hugo, “99 Problems” (Jay-Z)
Who would have ever thought Jay-Z’s track would work as a honky tonk throw down?
2. Yael Naim, “Toxic” (Britney Spears)
This cover is a surprisingly sexual take on the Britney’s chart-topper.
