Watch Olen Put A Dreamy, Melodic Spin On Childish Gambino's "Heartbeat" | Hip-Hop Re:Defined
Beneath all the sexual bluster of Childish Gambino's 2011 single "Heartbeat" is a thick fog of yearning and longing. And a singer/songwriter like Olen is perfect to tease out its emotional essence — and imbue Donald Glover's razor-sharp raps with infectious melody.
In the inaugural episode of Hip-Hop Re:Defined — a limited series paying tribute to some of hip-hop's greatest hits, for the genre's 50th anniversary — watch Olen's evocative performance of "Heartbeat." For more episodes, visit GRAMMY.com/videos.
