B.o.B‘s “Not For Long” is an upbeat hip-hop track, but BLACKPINK‘s Rose put an entirely new twist on the song with her cover!
On BLACKPINK’s Weekly Idol, Rose performed the song she auditioned with to enter YG Entertainment.
B.o.B’s original version uses autotune and light, happy synth sounds. Trey Songz also lends his smooth vocals to the song’s chorus. In contrast, Rose shows off her acoustic guitar skills and combines that with her calm, soothing rap and sweet vocals.
Watch Rose’s version, and then compare it to the original!
With this kind of skill, it wouldn’t be surprising to see Rose performing on an international stage.
