Kanye West Tried Singing Queen’s “Bohemian Rhapsody” And This Is What Happened

Posted July 4, 2015 by J Matthew Cobb in News

Kanye West may be a solid rapper, but the word “singer” is not a part of his vocabulary. Especially when he attempts singing a Queen classic

So at this year’s Glastonbury Festival, hip-hop giant Kanye West (who was also petitioned against heavily by ticket holders for being its headliner) pulled out a short cover of Queen’s infamous rock-opera sing-a-long “Bohemian Rhapsody” in his long set.

He’s not getting any love for doing it. And he shouldn’t.

West’s version features more of that irritating talk-sing. Heck, he barely knew the words.

Thank God the audience is there to help carry the load. And the serenading piano. Otherwise, West has committed an unforgivable sin.

Look, even Freddie Mercury knows this is a joke.

ROUND 1. FIGHT! #mortalkombat

Part-time Queen frontman Adam Lambert even weighed in on the matter.

Please send this card to Mr. College Dropout. Time for a time out.







I also read an article dating back to 2011 that stated hit record producer L.A Reid compared Kanye West to Prince. That’s a WTH! post for another day.
