Broken-hearted youth without a valentine this year would do well to listen to Singer David Dave’s upcoming spiced-up cover of So Sick originally sung by Ne Yo. The Afro-Caribbean version is perfect for jilted suitors and separated lovers to feel upbeat and perhaps take a cue from the message of its lyrics that speak of being sick of love and wasting time over brooding and negativity.
David Dave’s groovy cover of So Sick is slated for release shortly and is perfect to offset the sadness, loneliness, and negativity experienced by youth feeling left out on Valentine’s day. So Sick is an original song by American R&B singer-songwriter Ne Yo also known as Shaffer Chimere Smith. The song sends out a clear message to men spurned or separated emphasizing the pointlessness of keeping on pining over someone. It encourages the listener to pick themselves up and move on rather than wait in hope of unrequited love. David Dave’s cover of So Sick is an attempt to spruce up the song with an Afro-Caribbean beat making it livelier to resonate with his objective of providing something positive for the broken-hearted this valentine’s day.
