O.T. Genasis might want to watch out because 21 Savage is coming for his “so bad, it’s good” singing crown. 21 hopped on Instagram Live and tried his best to hit the high notes from a few of his R&B favorites on Sunday (April 5).
The Slaughter Gang rapper sang tracks such as Beyoncé’s “Me, Myself & I” and Usher’s “Let It Burn” to the delight of viewers stuck at home due to the COVID-19 pandemic. He even made it impossible to ignore the comparison to O.T. Genasis by singing Keyshia Cole’s “Love,” which was remixed for last year’s viral sensation “Never Knew.”
