MTS’s HeIsTheArtist tops iTunes electronic charts with “Sumthin ‘Sumthin'”
This isn’t the first cover of HITA to top the South African charts. His Britney Spears / Snoh Aalegra mash-up, “Sometimes / I Want You Around”, reached No. 1 on the South African Jazz Song Chart.
“Sumthin ‘Sumthin’ ‘is my cover of 2 tracks from the legendary classic Neo-Soul Maxwell,” says HeIsTheArtist. “The cover mixes old school neo-soul and smooth jazz with contemporary electronic instrumentation, while the Disco Funk version adds a fun disco / funk flavor. This outing is meant to get people dancing during this harsh pandemic. “
