Nicki Minaj is known for fusing pop and hip-hop with chart-topping results, but has she ever considered throwing some bluegrass in there? By the sounds of this twangin' cover of "Anaconda," maybe she should.
Known for their genre-switching covers of popular songs, Postmodern Jukebox say they were inundated by requests to tackle the "Pills N Potions" MC's sexually charged track. "Well, a bunch of you requested this one, and after hearing Nicki Minaj's 'Anaconda,' we just knew that we had to cover it," says band in the YouTube video's description.
Backed by guest banjoist Matt Bruer, lead singer Robyn Adele Anderson, all barefoot and pigtailed, sing-raps the lyrics to the smash hit with a Honky Tonkin’ flourish. But what makes this viral video truly pop, though, is Von Smith, who casually pets Marty the Chihuahua while singing backup in a chair.
