There are many up and coming musicians using social media to share their music, but there aren’t many artists using social media to share other artists’ music. Enter Justin Bernardez, TikTok’s latest obsession.
Bernardez is known for making songs that sound like they could be unreleased tracks off your favorite artist’s next album. Bernardez shows his followers his process as he combines beats and lyrics to imitate popular artists.
Bernardez’s most liked TikTok, with more than 945,800 likes, shows what a song with DaBaby and Drake would sound like.
Bernardez started by selecting a sound DaBaby might use and added a beat to complete the sound. Bernardez then recorded some flows in DaBaby’s and Drake’s styles. Bernardez finished off the track with some ad-libs, and it sounded just like something you would hear on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.
Viewers were blown away.
“This sounds so much like Drake and DaBaby I’m scared. I want the full song tho,” one user commented.
Some users started making requests for future TikToks. Viewers wanted to hear Meek Mill, Roddy Ricch, and Travis Scott, among others.
It seems as though Bernardez listened to viewers’ requests because he has since made videos in the styles of Roddy Ricch and Travis Scott.
Bernardez’s TikTok, @justinbernardez_, is full of these creations, as well as some original covers.
