For the weekly soundtrack for HBO’s drama series “Vinyl,” Trey Songz covers the David Bowie classic “Life On Mars,” a track from Bowie’s 1973 LP Hunky Dory. Songz doesn’t stray too much from the original format of the song, as he wanted to tribute the music icon in a respectable way.
Songz told Complex, “I had to do what I do best, because icons like David paved the way. After learning of his passing I knew that this was a special moment in time and this cover became my personal tribute to David.”
