Music Monday – Alaine, “Hello (Adele Reggae Cover)”

Have you ever heard a super random “reggae version” of a song? I’ve heard more than a few Michael Bolton reggae covers since coming to Jamaica. Jamaican artists seem to love a good cover!

Of course it took a mere two and a half weeks from the release date of Adele’s new single “Hello” for a Jamaican reggae version to come about. Songstress Alaine covers the song beautifully, but she’s no Adele.

Many thanks to my friend Alice for making me aware of this gem.

  1. I love Jamaica’s tradition of reworking music. It’s a copyright nightmare for artists, of course, but over the past year I have heard multiple versions using the same riddim, and each new version helped me experience the other versions in a new way.
