New Music: The-Dream Attempts To Cover Aaliyah’s “One In A Million”

The-Dream - myspace.com/thedreamteam

Some songs should just never be covered. Unfortunately, Def Jam artist and super successful songwriter, The-Dream, did not get that memo when he attempted to cover the 1997 classic, One In A Million, originally performed by late r&b star Aaliyah.

The-Dream tries his hardest to mimic Aaliyah’s signature vocal styling and fails miserably.

For a song that is fairly simple in its melody and delivery, it proves extremely difficult for The-Dream to reproduce, even when he tries to make it his own. His high notes are sharp and his low notes sound as if he is running out of breath.

The good news is, The-Dream knows he’ll never be able to sing the song like the late r&b princess. In a painfully typo-ridden tweet on Twitter, he tells fans no one will ever be able to sing the tune like Aaliyah and he covered the song because he really misses her and “it was done out of respect.”

His heart was in the right place but perhaps the most respectful thing would have been to leave a terrific song alone.
