Happy Sunday, everyone!
Today’s “Sunday Slow Jam” features one of my favorite songs…EVER! Covered by the amazingly-talented JR Aquino (an artist whom I’d featured in a previous “Sunday Slow Jam”), “Not a Bad Thing” continues to make me swoon- even to this day! 🙂
Now, I won’t deny that the original song by Justin Timberlake is also very lovely; you can imagine that I’ve had it on repeat ever since it came out over two years ago. The sweet guitar rift, the laid-back medium tempo, and Timberlake’s soft crooning of unconditional love to his romantic partner just gets to me. It is definitely “not a bad thing” to fall in love with this song! ❤
However, with JR Aquino’s acoustic cover of “Not a Bad Thing,” the song is taken to a whole new level. With a few adjustments to the guitar chords and strum patterns, as well as the addition of the *adorably awesome* dance interpretations from Chad Mayate and Charles Nguyen (members of the hit-dance group Poreotics), this rendition of the already-beautiful song makes it, well, perfect.
So give it a listen, and let me know what you think! Perhaps you’ll fall in love with it as well! Enjoy the rest of your weekend. 🙂
