Conor Maynard Sings Medley Over Drake's "Controlla"
There is no denying that Conor Maynard has an absolutely outstanding voice with spot on control. You may know him from his previous covers on YouTube but this time he's bringing something a little different to the table. Medleys are difficult to pull off to say the least. One has to keep in mind some music theory such as what key each song is in or the tempo and rhythm of the lyrics and then make adjustments to be able to mash them together. For this video Conor chose to do an "old school" R&B medley over Drake's "Controlla."
It's pretty obvious from the get go that the singing audio has been pre-recorded (to avoid wind noise) but the two brothers in the video have fun with it by setting up a sort of staged skit. Jack Maynard sets up the intro explaining the rules of which Conor is about to do. He simply states that he's going to play a beat and that Conor has to "freestyle" over it... in which he does so smoothly. Some various tracks tackled include songs from Ne-Yo, Blu Cantrell, R. Kelly, Mario, Usher, Craig David and so on and so forth. Conor owns it to say the least. Enjoy for yourself!
