Soul Clap: Adrian Marcel – “Fifty Shades of Adrian: Unplugged”


Before he drops off the reloaded version of his Weak After Next mixtape due out this month, Adrian Marcel handed his fans his latest Fifty Shades of Adrian: Unplugged mixtape.

On Fifty Shades of Adrian: Unplugged the Oakland-bred singer sang acoustic versions of a few songs featured on his previous projects Weak After Next and 7 Days of Weak as well as a remake of the classic “I Put A Spell On You”.  Adrian also took Avril Lavigne’s “Give You What You Like” and redid it with his personal soulful touch.

The stripped down versions of all six songs on this project allow you to really hear the grit and strength in Adrian Marcel’s vocals. And it all sounds so good.
