Keke Wyatt Gets 'Down' On This Rose Royce & Mary J. Blige Cover


In the midst of promoting her current single "Sexy Song," Keke Wyatt is showing love to other R&B divas with the launch of her Keke Covers video series. For the first installment, Wyatt decided to cover the iconic soul song "I'm Going Down," first sung by the group Rose Royce led by singer Gwen Dickey in 1977 then later remade in 1994 by Mary J. Blige.

For her 2016 version, Keke channels the soulful spirit of both Dickey and Blige, then sprinkles her own magic on it and proceeds to kill it in the process. In the simple visual, Wyatt is in a studio with just a microphone and the backing track while she does vocal acrobatics and throws in a few dramatic movements and looks for good measure. She dials back her over-the-top personality but lets her voice loose with harmonies, runs and wails make a statement. The video is a little over two minutes long, which is way too short and will leave you longing for Keke to release this as a single ASAPtually.
