"If you're feeling like a pimp gone brush your shoulders off!" Superfruit are at it again! Comprised of two parts of a cappella's premier super group Pentatonix, it should come as no surprise that best friends Mitch Grassi and Scott Hoying are beyond talented. The duo never deliver less than musical perfection; however, you may be surprised by just how creative the duo gets on their new video "Hip-Hop Goes Broadway 2."
Have you ever wondered what some of your favorite Drake songs would sound like if they made the transition from the radio to a Broadway theatre? What would "Hotline Bling" sound like if it were being performed by a crew of tap dancers? Things would obviously be just a little different, as we trade in trap beats for piano accompaniment and moody vocals for trilling crescendos. This is quite literally what Superfruit does in their new video!
In Superfruit's hands, a collection of hip-hop hits from artists like Drake, Fetty Wap, and Lil' John are transformed from ratchet club bangers into rousing Broadway anthems.
"Now watch me whip / now watch me nae nae," Mitch proudly proclaims with his bright tenor voice over a joyful piano riff from Disney's Frozen in the video's introduction. Scott can't resist joining in on the fun, as he harmonizes with Mitch on the first epic crescendo (one of many to come). From there, the duo hit their rhythm and work their way through a slew of hits.
"Turn Down For What" takes on a campy fun sound, as the duo try to determine exactly what to turn down for, while "Hotline Bling" sounds even more dramatic with a little piano backing. A little Lion King makes an appearance before Drake's "Blessed" becomes a rousing power ballad, and "Get Low" receives an outright angelic interpretation.
Let me assure you that you have NEVER heard the phrase "till the sweat drips down my balls" performed with such passion and gusto... You don't want to miss it! Take a listen below to experience the perfection firsthand! Make sure to watch all the way through to catch the bloopers behind Superfruit's creative process!
There is quite literally NOTHING like hearing your favorite hip-hop songs re-imagined as Broadway anthems! Superfruit have delivered yet another fun and adventurous performance that leaves us wanting more! What do you think? Let us know!
