People Are Making Trap Covers To Your Favorite Pop Songs And It’s Spectacular

Twitter is what it is. Sometimes it’s cool, and other times it’s a cesspool of idiots, bigots and asshats. But on Thursday night, Twitter was peak lit with trap covers of songs I never thought I’d get a chance to yell “Aye! Turn up!” to.

@ILLCapitano94 started the #TrapCover hashtag “in retaliation to white covers turning party songs into elevator music.” For anyone lost, a British singer is currently enjoying some internet fame for covering Rihanna’s “Work” and transforming it into customer-service hold music. Same for Beyonce’s “Formation” and singers pulling out their guitars and butchering the original.

YouTube funny man Nathan Zed got the ball rolling with a trap cover of The Beatles’ “Hey Jude” that would cause any traditional Beatles fan to suffer a heart attack. After Nathan’s cover, it was pretty much a wrap from there as others began chiming in with trap covers of pop songs from Britney Spears’ “…Baby One More Time” to Vanessa Carlton’s “A Thousand Miles” to Queen’s “Bohemian Rhapsody.” Even the Friends theme song got re-worked and made suitable for club consumption.
