Jarell Perry - Own It (Drake Cover)

Posted 2 years ago
Producer:
HSVN
Album:
None (Promo Single)

Over the last two years, Jarell Perry‘s shown Boothgoers the strength of his solo material. Now, the indie-R&B buzzmaker tries his hand at a cover of an existing joint. “Guess whose it is. Guess whose it is. Guess whose it is.” It’s Drake‘s! This freshly-released rendition of Own It, track number five off last year’s Nothing Was the Same LP, simultaneously heightens the original cut’s R&B vibe and deepens its indebtedness to current trends in hip-hop. To back Perry’s tender, falsetto-laced reinterpretation of Aubrey Graham’s wistful verses and chorus, constant collaborator HSVN cooks up a synth beat fueled by clattering trap hi-hats. Together, have they managed to do justice to the original? I think I know the answer but, as always, y’all get to lay down the final verdict. This cover is unattached to a larger project, but fans can hear more from Perry on his White LP, out on iTunes as of March 4.
