Drake’s ‘Marvin’s Room’ Covered by Singer JoJo — Listen
Though the 20-year-old singer is not yet of legal drinking age, JoJo does her best to match Drake’s alcohol-induced rambling with the female counterpart as she calls her ex-boyfriend to remind him of all the bonkers sex he’s missing.
“I’ve been up three days, Adderol and Red Bull/
This call is a mistake, there’s something strong in this water bottle,” the former ‘Kids Say the Darndest Things’ contestant croons, before flipping Drizzy’s hook. “F— that new girl that you like so bad/ She’s not crazy like me, I bet you like that/ F— that new girl that’s been in your bed/ And when you’re in her I know I’m in your head.”
While Drake nailed his introspective original, which will likely appear on his sophomore album, ‘Take Care,’ JoJo’s attempt is not half-bad, and acts as an announcement from the younger singer, who is both shedding her “squeaky-clean teen” image, and proving herself capable of comfortably tackling somewhat darker subject matter, even if it makes some of us cringe.
Also, JoJo’s version has already received about twice as many YouTube views (almost 3 million) as Drake’s, in just one day.
