Have you ever wondered what a song would sound like if your male bias was to sing it? There is a world on YouTube that is dedicated to the wonderful following of ‘Male Versions’ of songs and my favorite area has got to be the Korean music side. So this list is just my opinion of girl group and soloist songs that I think would sound great covered by male idols.
4Minute – ‘Hate’
Okay so there’s a male version of this song which I have absolutely fallen in love with and thought, man this song would sound amazing if VIXX did a cover. The members would make a great 4Minute; N as Jihyun, Leo and Ken taking on Gayoon’s high notes, Ravi as Jiyoon of course, Hongbin as Hyuna and lastly Hyuk as Sohyun. There maybe be a few line changes but listen to this and tell me you don’t hear it too?!
Jung In – ‘As Life Goes On’ [King Of High School OST]
Jung In has such a beautiful and unique voice that it’s hard to top, but imagine a male version sung by EXO’s Chanyeol and Chen. If you have never heard Chanyeol sing before I suggest listening to his cover of ‘All Of Me’ by John Legend. He’s got some amazing skills and together with Chen their vocal abilities would be epic and who wouldn’t want a deep voiced vocalist with an amazing singer serenading you?
AOA Cream – ‘I’m Jelly Baby’
Covered by the very quirky hip hop group Topp Dogg. Now when I thought of this one, I saw it more as parody cover because if you’re familiar with the boys of Topp Dogg, you know it’s going to be amazing, hilarious and adorable all at the same time. If you haven’t already seen, the boys released a cover of Ellie Goulding’s ‘Love Me Like You Do’ and it was stunning, they also uploaded a short dance cover of GFRIEND’s ‘Glass Bead’. I’d just imagine this cover a bit more playful and fun. Powerful dance moves on top of strong rap and vocals I guess you could say that they’re quite top notch.
2NE1 – ‘I Am The Best’
Remember when BIGBANG actually performed I Am The Best as part of their concert performances? Even though they did technically cover it, I really wished that the boys would release an actual cover video for it I mean that would just be totally awesome. The boys really killed their performance of this track and their vocals really go well with the corresponding label mates lines. A 2NE1 cover of ‘Fantastic Baby’ would be really cool to contrast with as well but that’s just wishful thinking.
TTS – ‘Only U’
Last but not least ‘Only U’ covered by SEVENTEEN’s vocal unit. I actually got this idea from a Woozi compilation video celebrating his birthday and it was the cutest thing ever so I thought, damn this song would sound amazing if these boys covered it. All 5 members of the vocal unit: Jeonghan, Joshua, Woozi, DK and Seungkwan have such beautiful voices that would be perfect for a ballad such as this. With their powerful and smooth contrasting vocals, a performance of this is sure to make the heart of any fan melt. If you’re not completely convinced check out their cover of label mate After School‘s ‘Because Of You’.
