A unique cover of Childish Gambino’s “Redbone” by musician Kelsey Kuan deserves some serious attention.
The video begins with Kelsey stirring the strings of a zither, which sounds absolutely mesmerizing. But when Kuan starts singing, the cover becomes truly magical.
If you’ve been on YouTube in the past few months, you may remember that in addition to being a great song, “Redbone” also became a meme. People created versions of what the song would sound like in a variety of situations.
Twitter user hypnowad, who goes by Grace, turned Kelsey’s cover song into a Redbone meme, making the already awesome video even better.
This caused Kelsey’s cover video to blow up on Twitter.
Kelsey’s unique version affected many people emotionally.
It’s clear that this cover is just as much of a bop as the original version.
But the best part is that Kelsey didn’t even know that the “Redbone” meme was a thing.
u kno the best part is she didnt even kno it was a meme 💀💀💀
