As promised, here’s the first “Fave Cover Friday” post! It was very hard picking the first song for this segment…But after several pros and cons lists, heads or tails flips, polls, etc., I finally decided on Taylor John Williams’ version of Kanye West’s song “Heartless”.
“Heartless” was released in 2008 as Kanye’s second single from his album “808s and Heartbreak”.
Heavily auto-tuned and upbeat, this original is very different from Taylor’s cover.
This version of the song is quite soulful and relaxing- very different from the original. Isn’t it cool how someone can take a song and change it so much? Taylor was a contestant and semi-finalist of “The Voice” season 7 and used this song for his blind auditions.
