#FlashbackFriday – The 10 best #TrapCover videos

So this topic is a little old but I recently re-discovered it after a conversation with my colleagues and I HAD to share it with you guys in case you missed it.

It happened around the time Rihanna dropped her hit single ‘Work’ and it started to gain popularity. 1652’s (the Twitter term for white people) across the globe started to post more and more videos of themselves singing covers of ‘Work’ that had just about as much flavour as their food usually does.

And then, they took the lack of respek one step further and did a mellow ass cover of the biggest song in the world right now – Desiigner’s ‘Panda.’

In order to prove that you just don’t do that to a sick ass flow over a killer trap beat black people all over the Internet banded together and produced trap covers of some of the most popular songs ever sung by 1652’s and here are some of my favourites:

1. Katy Perry’s ‘Firework’

2. Vannessa Carlton’s ‘A Thousand Miles’

3. Meghan Trainor’s ‘All About That Bass’

4. Adele’s ‘Hello’

5. Britney Spears’ ‘Hit Me Baby (One More Time)’

6. Queen’s ‘Bohemian Rapshody’

7. Ed Sheeran’s ‘Thinking Out Loud’

8. Miley Cyrus’ ‘Wrecking Ball’

9. Taylor Swift’s ‘Shake it Off’

10. And the ultimate! A cover/mash-up of ‘Let it Go’ and ‘Do You Want to Build a Snowman’ from Frozen

There are a few extras that I couldn’t leave out

11. Titanic

12. Taylor Swift’s ‘Blank Space’

13. Mariah Carey’s ‘Touch My Body’

14. The High School Musical theme song

15. Fergie’s ‘Fergalicious’
