Wesley Stromberg & Kenny Holland Cover J. Cole’s “Crooked Smile” – Watch Now! (@wesleystromberg @iamKennyHolland)


After months of posting snaps and Instagram photos with each other, Emblem3’s Wesley Stromberg and Kenny Holland have finally gave us the answer to that one burning question — what are they actually working on?

The guys posted a cover video of J. Cole’s “Crooked Smile” on Kenny’s YouTube channel earlier this week and we haven’t stopped listening to it since its release.

The video starts with Wes and Kenny waking up in the middle of the night with the urge to make a cover video. The cover stands out to us the most because it reminds us of the old YouTube cover days when it was just the artist and the instrument. It looks like the guys were actually holding the camera while filming, which makes us feel like we were in the room with them watching them perform!

Wes and I have been doing a ton of work together. Writing, recording, and planning. Here’s a little taste of what we have to show you guys soon. Stay tuned…
