It’s been a long time since I’ve seen them… and I mean a really long time! I was wondering when they’d be back with another cover!! I am talking about Royal Pirates!
They recently uploaded to their youtube channel a cover of Ailee‘s Heaven.
So who are they?? If you started your Kpop fandom sometime around 2009 you might recognize them as the group that covered Nobody and Sorry Sorry. These covers became quite popular at that time. I especially liked the Sorry Sorry cover at that time. (Sorry I can’t post the videos because their channel has marked it private :()
But now they’ve come back and they even added a bass section to the band hurray!
There is a note on the video in youtube. It said:
“As the Royal Pirates mentioned earlier today on Facebook and Twitter, we wanted to share a small piece of what RP has been up to lately. After almost 7 months since their last public performance, we all have been working passionately in Korea for RP’s next step. Hope you guys enjoy this raw cover RP recently recorded for you all~ More exciting updates to come!”
Does this mean they will be debuting in Korea?? Omo! I can’t wait. There is always room for rock/alternative bands in Korea. I think rock is becoming more of a mainstream now in the Hallyu scene! Another hurray!!! I think it’s about time!
I can’t wait for them to debut! Good luck to you guys!!
The Wondergirls had their concert recently in Korea. So because of that I had the sudden urge to put up on my blog 2 covers of the very popular Wondergirls song, Nobody…
Royal Pirates Version
This is the rock version of the song. I’m very amazed and pleased with this version. Ahaha. I think these guys pulled it off. Royal pirates also have versions of other Korean songs like Mirotic and Sorry Sorry (will be posting Sorry Sorry later). You can check them out at their myspace account: http://www.myspace.com/royalpirates.
CPDRC inmates version (dance)
These inmates have been popular all over the world for dancing Michael Jackson’s Thriller. Last Saturday, they dance to Nobody. They even had their version of the Wondergirls!!! ahaha sooo funny! I can’t stop laughing at Maria, Antonia and the 3 other “girls”.
Absolutely loved these versions!!!
