The first on the list is a piano and violin cover of Drake’s “Hotline Bling.” A violinist named Veronica is seen in her YouTube video playing the song with her violin which gives it a soulful kind of vibe that will make you want to listen to it before you go to sleep.
Ecletic Colour Orchestra’s cover of Mark Ronson and Bruno Mars’ “Uptown Funk” is too hot for you not to love it. The string- version gives the song a new flavor that can be played during parties or if just want to jam with your other fellow string musicians.
Ariana Grande’s original “Break Free” gets a revival from a string quartet made by one woman only. She plays all of the parts in a quartet and edited them to layer the sounds and the video. How’s that for dedication? You can watch her cover on YouTube under a name of Top40Strings.
A pianist called The Theorist made a moving piano cover of The Weeknd’s “The Hills.” The Theorist has made such a heart- warming cover it reminds us of our last dance with our fathers on our wedding day. That’s how emotional it is.
Vitamin String Quartet made Lorde’s “Royals” fit for a royalty. It has that Game- of- Thrones feel when the song of the Lannisters “Rains of Castamere” was being played during the Red Wedding. Quite gruesome but very royalty.
When Charmaine Chan and Kenny Chu used their traditional Chinese musical instrument to make a cover of Meghan Trainor’s “All About that Bass”, they proved that Western and Eastern music can work well together in fun and feet- pumping tune.
The China National Orchestra prepared a performance of Katy Perry’s “Roar” for Katy herself. We can say that they did a pretty good job as you can feel as if you’re one with nature while listening to their orchestra.
I’m not exactly sure what I should feel when I come across this string cover of Nicki Minaj’s “Anaconda” by Lara St. John. It was great and I can’t stop watching it even though my brain tells me to stop. That’s how good it is.
Lastly, Jessica Burton uses her harp to create an angelic cover of OMI’s “Cheerleader.” So good it can almost pass as a worship song every Sunday or a song for your wedding.
