Anthony Hamilton, whose roots-driven soul has led him to collaborate with everyone from Buddy Guy to Nas, chose a more unlikely source of inspiration for his latest cover: Silento‘s smash hit “Watch Me (Whip/Nae Nae).”
Hamilton brings blues to the track, complete with organ and some killer harmonies — he even works out his falsetto to kick things off.
Watch his almost-unrecognizable rendition below:
It’s even Silento-approved:

I just read a comment on my instagram post, that read, “He can sing about cramps and make it sound fun. His voice!” Too funny! Love my fans!
