Watch Nicki Minaj’s ‘Anaconda’ Performed Bluegrass Hoedown Style [VIDEO]by Thomas Chau | PopCrush
Trust us, you haven’t heard Nicki Minaj‘s ‘Anaconda’ until you’ve heard it done bluegrass hoedown style!
Postmodern Jukebox posted their latest pop-turned-vintage video on YouTube, and this one’s a bluegrass rendition of the popular Nicki Minaj hit. The group is best known for taking popular songs and reworking them as other genres in previous eras, such as doo wop or big band style.
Founder Scott Bradlee writes, “Well, a bunch of you requested this one, and after hearing Nicki Minaj’s ‘Anaconda,’ we just knew that we had to cover it. Watch Robyn Adele Anderson and guest banjoist Matt Bruer change the meaning of this song by rendering it as a bluegrass ditty.”
Anderson impressively nails all of Minaj’s quick lyrics down, while the rest of the band bring a bucolic feel to the song about, well, giant booties. There’s even an impressive banjo solo that will make you want to dance just as much as the original song.
