[FRESH NEW] Mickey Shiloh "Rolling In The Deep" (Adele Cover)


While on the topic of Tinie Tempah, it's a good moment to get to know fresh new artist Mickey Shiloh who recently reinterpreted Tempah's stomping "Pass Out" with some brand-new rhymes.

Daring and on point, Shiloh also covered Adele's worldwide smash "Rolling In The Deep" and gave the timeless gem a glossy new coating. While some of you may argue that this Adele classic should not be messed with, Shiloh gives the original a fresh and youthful make-over with a few new lyrics.

The multi-talented MC and singer has been covering tunes on YouTube to spark more interest in her talent. Shiloh is being mentored by none other than hit producer Rodney "Darkchild" Jerkins. He has worked on chart-topping hits for many artists, including Whitney Houston, Katy Perry and Lady Gaga, and is now helping Shiloh to develop a sound of her own.

It's important to note that Shiloh is not entirely new to the music business. In fact, she's an accomplised writer herself who has co-written songs for Britney Spears ("Don't Keep Me Waiting"), Janet Jackson ("Make Me"), Jennifer Lopez and Ray J.

Now, Shiloh is stepping out into the limelight and testing the waters as a performer. Earlier this week, she released her free "Dear Future" mixtape that shows off her sass and spunk as a female MC. Included on the release is her remake of Tinie Tempah's "Pass Out," plus a handful of electro-edged R&B pop gems that neatly showcase how this emerging artist is slowly but surely finding a voice of her own. Watch her cover of Adele's "Rolling In The Deep" to get a taste for Shiloh.
