Listen to this moody cover of Dolly Parton’s 'Jolene'
American rapper Lil Nas X has covered Dolly Parton’s Jolene and it’s fabulous! Even Dolly agrees.
Lil Nas X rose to fame with his country rap single Old Town Road and it seems he’s following the country vibe with this cover too.
YouTube commenter Jennifer Lavoie summed his version up perfectly: “Dolly sings it with desperation. He sings it like he’s already defeated. This is a glorious cover. I can’t stop listening.”
Have a listen and let us know what you think:
Dolly posted her praise of the cover to Instagram, writing: “I was so excited when someone told me that Lil Nas X had done my song “Jolene”. I had to find it and listen to it immediately…” she wrote.
“And it's really, really good. Of course, I love him anyway. I was surprised and I'm honored and flattered. I hope he does good for both of us. Thank you @lilnasx 🦋 ”
