When Ifirst came across this video of Justin Timberlake, I could have sworn he and his musical director had a few too many one night and conceived the idea to throw some metal behind his hit song from The 20/20 Experience
. I was foolishly mistaken as the video was created by Los Angeles-based musician and producer Andy Rehfeldt.
Refeldt took just the vocal stem and created a cacophonous, room-filling metal backing track for JT's smooth voice. When seamlessly paired with the video, it seems like the band is dancing along to the new version of the song (although, there may be some unforeseen copyright issues at hand if someone somewhere has a stick up their bum). We salute you Andy Rehfeldt for, not only the entertainment value of your video, but also for giving us a refreshing taste of a type of music that usually gets a bad rap for the outspoken boneheads that tend to overpopulate the genre.
Rehfeldt has performed his brand of magic on quite a few songs. If you're interested in hearing what some of your favorite artists would sound like if they made some different life decisions, check out his website
. My personal favorite so far has got to be Chris Brown singing over polka
