Shenseea nailed Busta Rhymes’ verse to Chris Brown’s “Look At Me” as if it were his own.
The Jamaican artist has risen through the ranks in music and her freestyle Funk Flex has shown that she is above the rest with her lyrics, but it seems that the dancehall deejay’s good listening skills are also top notch. In a video shared to Instagram, Shenseea spits out perhaps Busta Rhymes’ most iconic verse. The verse is taken from “Look At Me Now” by Chris Brown, with Busta and Lil Wayne, where the two rappers spiced up the track.
“Tell me why did I let my friends set me up to do this,” she laughed, tagging fellow Romeich Entertainment artist Ding Dong and Busta Rhymes. “Istg imma gonna catch this verse,” she added.
Busta Rhymes reacted to the video with a series of laughing emojis. While the verse was rapped so quickly, it’s impressive that Shenseea was able to keep up with the rapper because the lyrics on paper and the lyrics in sound don’t sound the same. Busta Rhymes’ style of rapping is also unique to him in the hip-hop space, as few rappers can spit out a verse like him. The 2011 song was certified platinum by the RIAA, and the “Look At Me” music video currently has over 550 million views on YouTube.
Meanwhile, Shenseea has been booked and busy as she recently performed at Rolling Loud Canada and was recently spotted performing in France. The artist’s stage performance in France was electric, and it was conveyed by the fans who sang along to his songs.
Sharing her fiery orange cut from France with stones imitating water drops, Shenseea wrote: “Paris, Pop in, Pop out!
The Jamaican singer has had one of the best years of her career following the release of her debut album, Alpha, earlier this year. The project was acclaimed by fans and critics and cemented Shenseea as one of the greatest Jamaican artists of all time. Since dropping the project, she has toured almost non-stop, including a busy summer schedule with shows in Europe, the Caribbean, Canada and the United States. Between her tour dates, she also finds time to record new music for her second album, due out next year.
