HeIsTheArtist - (COVER) 'I Want You Around'

HeIsTheArtist - (COVER) 'I Want You Around'

'I Want You Around' by Snoh Aalegra is covered here by HeIsTheArtist. The cover will never be close to how great the original is but here we can cover the aspect regarding the music and overall feel of this cover. Keeping it straight and simple, this cover is easy-going, the music is identical to the original in relation to the ambience and flow. Depth can be felt in the beats and Rhodes playing along with it. The important thing to notice is that music is the only thing except the vocals that sustains the quality and some level of emotion that are borrowed from the original. Replication is the key to this song although the vocals are very muted and are very far from the original.

About HeIsTheArtist:

"Heistheartist (He Is The Artist) is an American Christian singer-songwriter from Central Islip, NY. Formerly a secular neo-soul singer signed to "Bentley Records" under his biological name "LeeMann Bassey," Heistheartist discovered that his true calling was with the Lord after hearing an inspiring sermon by TD Jakes online one day. That day he was inspired to teach the world about the Lord like TD Jakes did with his Sermon but through music.

His single, “Boom (Remastered)” hit #1 on the Christian/Gospel charts in South Africa, followed by a #1 iTunes Jazz mash-up of Britney Spears and Snoh Aalegra. The instrumental, “Snake Charmer” is HITA’s first release of 2021. It reached #8 on the UK EDM iTunes chart.

A new single, a cover of Maxwell’s neo-soul classic, “Sumthin’ Sumthin’” is out on MTS Records now, including the disco-funk remix!"
