Yiddish Klezmer Cover Of ‘Talk Dirty’ Is Unexpected

Is there anything less Yiddish than rap music?

Still, Scott Bradlee and the Postmodern Jukebox was somehow able to merge the Jason Derulo and 2 Chainz hit rap single Talk Dirty with vintage Klezmer-style Yiddish music.

“Klezmer” is of course the music style of traditional Eastern European Jewry. Vocalist Robyn even threw in some authentic Yiddish into their performance.

The resulting cover song is interesting to say the least. 

“‘Get Klezmer on it.”
