R&B Cover Songs by am1r

Thank you for checking out some of my R&B covers on this page! I upload regular covers of new popular songs as well as some classics to my YouTube channel.  Since I’m the type of singer who strives to stand out vocally, I usually approach my covers with the intention of making them sonically unique and different from the original! In most cases, I also give them a more soulful / R&B feel regardless of what genre the original song falls in. It isn’t necessarily my intention to turn them into R&B songs, but it just so happens that they turn out that way since that is the genre that represents me best as an artist!

I usually start by becoming familiar with the songs and then learning the chords. After that, I decide whether I want to slow the song down or keep it at the same tempo. Once this has been established I start building a new track around the song, similar to a remix. Once I’m happy with the instrumental, I start recording the vocals. The final step in the process is mixing the song, which happens once all the vocals are edited. After that, I release the cover to the world!

August Alsina – No Love (Cover)

I love this song by August Alsina featuring Nicki Minaj.  I actually received several requests to do a cover of an August Alsina track and decided on this one because it is one of my favorites by him.
