I'm usually not a fan of covers (just listen to the originals people!), but Karmin has won a special place in my heart. By covering everyone's favorite Top 40 rap, pop, rock, and R&B songs, editing out curse words, and highlighting the songs' musicality, Karmin has been getting a lot of attention from the ol' interwebz lately.
