Ed Sheeran covers "Pony" by Ginuwine


ThisisRnB.com caught up with burgeoning UK singer-songwriter Ed Sheeran while he was visiting New York City in promotion for his debut album "+" and rehearsing for his sold-out show at Bowery Ballroom. While his own music straddles the line of acoustic, folk, alternative and pop, Ed is a big fan of Hip-Hop and R&B has well. Upon speaking with him the 21-year old singer jumped into an impromptu acoustic rendition of one of his favorite '90s R&B joints "Pony" by Ginuwine. A sure favorite of many, check out Ed's personal rendition now.

i don't even like channing tatum or his body type or the idea of oily men stripping and dancing on me but that movie had me rethinking EVERYTHING.
im_a_lewser 30th-Jun-2012 04:19 am (UTC)

deadtree 30th-Jun-2012 04:24 am (UTC)

If you double click the pic after you add it to the post, box should appear with the dimensions, Just resize it to about 500-600 pixels wide.

I never liked that song. I always thought the hook sounded like burping.
goldenmeans 30th-Jun-2012 03:41 am (UTC)
The next song he should cover is 4"33" by John Cage.

now this is a classy putdown, ontd should observe and learn

I'm actually really sick of people jumping over white kid's dicks for doing acoustic renditions of R&B songs. It really rubs me the wrong way. It's like "Oh good now we can enjoy black music without the black people!" especially when it comes to media coverage.
childish 30th-Jun-2012 03:58 am (UTC)
Go look at the comments for Ben Fold's cover of Bitches Ain't Shit and Jenny Owens Young's Hot in Herre.

Fuck all the ignorant ass ghetto motherfuckers hating. Get the fuck off the internet and back to the streets where you belong.

She makes this song artistic and poetic lol



Yeah, I'm tired of these.

jrrr Re: 30th-Jun-2012 03:47 am (UTC)
now it's ~innocent~ and ~non-threatening~! this is such a weird rite of passage for white boys with acoustic guitars

agreed

Thank you!

lol what is this comment? I get it, but tons of musicians cover other musicians all the time. It's not bad to like and cover different artists.
tigirah Re: 30th-Jun-2012 04:35 am (UTC)
this comment is reminding me of those 'kill whitey' parties :(
hershelwalker Re: 30th-Jun-2012 04:38 am (UTC)
this was literally my first thought
dorcasgailen Re: 30th-Jun-2012 04:51 am (UTC)
I understand why you are saying this and I think there is valid underlying logic. However, I would react similarly if anyone covered Pony by Ginuwine. I just really really like this song and have not stopped listening to it since it came out. (Like its been in rotation since the 90s for me).
chy_tea Re: 30th-Jun-2012 05:53 am (UTC)
that's just a broad generalization though. youtube is a cesspool of the worst kind of people on the internet, of course they're going to say ignorant shit. we can't side-eye every white artist who does a creative cover of a song...just because BiebersGrrrrl09 might say how much "better" it is than Flo Rida's "black" version. c'mon now.

Agreed!
beatlesluv Re: 30th-Jun-2012 12:45 pm (UTC)
Why would you say this though? He's just covering a song he likes. Is it a crime for this guy to like a song and cover it? Black artist songs off limits? This is really not fair at all. He's a talented artist, and was just giving his rendition of the song. Why does everything have to default to this. White artsits do R&B and I've seen white artists doing songs that are "of their genre." I am really troubled by this way of thinking, no personal offense to you. Just b/c majority of songs w/in the R&B genre are by black artists, doesn't mean it's just a black genre and no one else is allowed to touch it. Black artists cover rock songs too are they not allowed?

If we're looking at this history of music it's actually mainly black artists who are legends in the genre and there is a thread of that influence in every genre. Should nobody sing a song anymore?

This is so problematic.

LOL. I like Ed Sheeran and I love a good cover, but you speaks the truth.
in_styles Re: 30th-Jun-2012 09:25 pm (UTC)
Wow. RME. It's a fucking song cover. I'm black and honestly give zero fucks. Everything isn't always about white people trying to look/do something better than black people ffs.

Legit had to stop this a couple of times because of how it affected me tbh. Now he just needs to grab Zayn and have them cover it together.
fierceputain 30th-Jun-2012 05:11 am (UTC)
