Listen to John Legend "Rolling In The Deep" (Skeet Skeet & Turbotito Remix)

John-legend

Adele's "Rolling In The Deep" is one of the best songs of the year so far. And I have no doubt that this track will be up for a couple of golden statues (at least) at next year's GRAMMY Awards. In fact, the song and Adele's chart-topping album "21" have propelled the British songer to a new level of stardom that she more than deserves. 

John Legend covered Adele's original version of "Rolling In The Deep" and shared the acapella of his performance with a few select remixers to create a new twist on Adele's original. Pretty gutsy move by John, but his version stands very solid on his own.

Check out an excellent remix produced by DJ Skeet Skeet together with Turbotito who turn John Legend's cover of Adele's propulsive ballad into a slow-churning soul sensation that will have you rolling along the moment it hits. Highly recommended. (Download in player below or right here.)

Skeet Skeet is bringing more heat in the months to come. He is currently on tour with none other than Katy Perry while working on his own artist album that includes collaborations with, yes, The Cataracs, Christian TV, Donnis, Bonde Do Role and Madi Diaz. Also, check out "Stand Back," a flaming Stevie Nicks cover he collaborated on with SUPERFRAICHE performer Sky Ferreira.

John Legend's Candid Footage of Obama Inaugural Event

This is pretty cool... Who knew that John Legend and his assistant were such fanatic video bloggers. Yesterday, they took their flip cam to the Lincoln Memorial where they shot some very candid moments at the "We Are One" Obama Inaugural Event. Look at him, Josh Groban and Beyonce joking around while waiting for Barack and Michelle to come and greet them. "Let's bring out the 'Single Ladies,'" Legend quips. "Yes, we can." (Scroll to the 7 minute mark to see Legend's moment with Obama.)
