Karmin, Questlove Cover Nicki Minaj's 'Super Bass'
YouTube's favorite couple, Karmin, who are known for their gone-viral cover of Chris Brown's "Look At Me Now," released their own version of Nicki Minaj's latest "Pink Friday" single "Super Bass" today (June 2). Watch below.
Amy Heidemann's mastery puts Taylor Swift's and Selena Gomez's respective "Super Bass" attempts to shame, but hearing someone other than Nicki spitting the pink-wigged rapper's rhymes with almost as much attitude and an acoustic guitar isn't the only surprise this video brings. Two familiar faces (and one very familiar afro pick), belonging to Questlove and Owen Biddle from The Roots, make an appearance one minute into the clip and turn Nicki's song into full-on jam session. While Britney Spears doesn't magically emerge from lights and smoke like she did after Nicki's recent Billboard Music Awards performance of "Super Bass," the collaboration is equally as awesome.
Apparently this isn't Karmin's first partnership with The Roots. The duo teamed up with Questlove at a Tufts University performance in May.
