So, Taylor Swift is getting dragged to hell and back because she chose to cover Earth, Wind, and Fire's 'September". If you haven't heard it, take a listen below:
Now, that you have heard it, what do you think? Is it really as bad as people are making it seem? Personally, I don't think it's that bad. I think the problem is the fact that Taylor is a white, pop artist covering a classic song made by black artists. MY OPINION!
In case you need a refresher on the original:
Now, obviously, there is no comparison. OF COURSE, Earth, Wind & Fire's "September" cannot be touched! I'm just saying that I don't think Taylor's version is as terrible as people are making it out to be. It's bland, but she felt like doing it, and caused the black twitter to roast her. I have to admit though, I LMAO reading them!
If you were curious to hear what unseasoned boiled chicken breast sounded like in song, take a listen to Taylor Swift cover Earth, Wind & Fire. https://t.co/5x1Ecwc1cw— Michael Arceneaux (@youngsinick) April 13, 2018
