The Kidz Bop Kids Are Apparently Old Enough To Lose Their Souls To Girls So Heartless

The latest edition of the Super Mega Smash Hits… For Kids (With A Z) series Kidz Bop has been covered in this space before, but having heard their cover of Kanye West’s “Heartless” this morning, I figured it was worth bringing up again. The cover is certainly worth your time and/or your 99 cents, if only because the kids-in-unison take on the chorus adds a melancholia to the proceedings that should definitely be appropriated by Mr. West on his next album about love gone bad. (And the bridge sounds pretty psychotic!) Kanye’s ode to a toxic relationship has been covered by quite a few people lately—for example recent American Idol victor Kris Allen, who himself was “inspired” by the waily adult contemporarists The Fray. So, who wore it better? Our poll, after the jump.
