Milwaukee is currently experiencing a new wave of talented musicians and artists throughout the city, one that Chicago’s little brother to the North has not seen in quite some time. Of the most talented artists emerging out of Milwaukee right now is New Age Narcissism, a collective comprised of rapper WebsterX, singers Lex Allen and Siren and more. Recently Milwaukee’s 88Nine Radio invited NAN’s Lex Allen and Siren to a local recording studio to lay down their own reinterpretations of two big records from The Weeknd. Covering Abel’s ‘Earned It’, from The Weeknd’s latest LP and the “Fifty Shades of Grey” soundtrack, Lex Allen performed a James Bond inspired rendition of the Beauty Behind The Madness track. And deciding to take a darker spin on the otherwise upbeat and poppy ‘Can’t Feel My Face’, Siren covered the song of the summer and Weeknd’s biggest single to date.
Watch Lex Allen’s rendition of ‘Earned It’ by The Weeknd below, as well as Siren’s ‘Can’t Feel My Face’ cover.
