Rotimi 'Hollywood Tonight [Michael Jackson Cover]'

In this exciting new GWHH PREMIERE, we present a brand new video from up and coming R&B star Rotimi. But this one's different than what you may be expecting as he covers his idol MIchael Jackson and his new song "Hollywood Tonight". If that doesn't sound familiar to you, then it is probably because you missed it on the posthumous release Michael from just a couple of weeks ago. What I noticed right away is that Rotimi emulates Michael's vocal style a little bit like you should in the cover, but also, nothing is exaggerated and he adds his own personal sound to the singing as well. And in addition to the on point vocals, Ro' recruits a dope live guitar and even a beatbox master by the name Ralphie to further add the original twist. The organic, in-studio process of creating the cover is artistically documented in the video as all three get some face time in the crispy visuals. I loved this one all the way around and look forward to what Rotimi has got in store for the upcoming debut project, The Resume, due out in February, 2011. If this is just an appetizer, then you know Rotimi's got somethin' special in store in a couple months and you know Gowhere will keep you in tune with what is to come from Ro' until then, so until then, enjoy!
