Not sure when I was more surprised: right now, realizing that Bieber can crush a cover of one of my all-time favorite songs, or when I learned that Tracy Chapman was a black woman and not a white man. It’s a toss-up, for certain. But you gotta give the kid his due. Known for the poppy hits, because he just puts out heaters, but he can sit there and rip Tracy Chapman acoustically too. That’s impressive as hell.
Maybe avoid the Tupac covers, however. I could only last about three seconds on “Thugz Mansion” before I cringed so hard that I accidentally snapped my computer in half.
