Alicia Keys Remixes Desiigner’s ‘Tiimmy Turner’ Into Piano Soliloquy [VIDEO]
As Desiigner’s haunting banger “Tiimmy Turner” continues to burn up the Billboard Rap charts, several artists have re-flipped the song in unique ways. Recently, Alicia Keys added her spin to the track and turned it into a piano-driven soliloquy.
On Friday (Sept. 16), the Grammy Award-winning singer went on her Instagram page and played her rendition on the piano for her followers. Basically, she stripped the song down to its melody and instead of singing, “Tiimmy, Tiimmy, Tiimmy Turner,” she crooned “Tina, Tina, Tina Turner.”
Can imagine if Keys and Desiigner hooked up for a collaborative song? It would be magical. Hopefully, the Brooklyn rhymer saw the video and considers working with her for his new album, Life of Desiigner.
Keys isn't the only artist reimagining Desiigner's track. The veteran producer DJ Premier recently remixed the song into a boom-bap street banger.
Watch Alicia Keys' version above. Also, Desiigner will be performing in the New York-area next month. Peep his itinerary below.
