Drake’s reaction to “AI Cover of Ice Spice’s Munch”
As record labels and streaming services team up to combat AI, there’s a polarizing reaction from artists and fans alike. Artists like Drake, Kanye West, Rihanna, and many others have had their voices sampled to processed through AI generators. We can’t lie, these Kanye AI covers are refreshing. However, it still breeds concerns surrounding the future of music. Industry experts, artists, and executives expressed the need to address the issues surrounding ethics. Meanwhile, it also spurs questions surrounding how musicians will further generate revenue when technology can seemingly replace them within seconds. Some might embrace the future of technology but others feel like this could lead to the worse.
Of course, the most popular artists have become the easiest to duplicate. One guy went viral for using AI to create his own Kendrick Lamar song. Another person uploaded AI covers of Rihanna performing renditions of songs from Maroon 5 and Beyoncé. However, a recently viral cover of an AI Drake performing Ice Spice’s “Munch” got the internet in a chokehold. Fans have been stunned by the uncanny resemblance to his voice and the uber-sassy bars coming from Drizzy.
