I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again…
This AI stuff is absolutely nuts.
Seriously, you can deep fake people’s faces onto other people’s bodies, and it looks 100% real (which is actually a terrifying thought), and you can also transform people’s voices into covering someone else’s songs, even if they’ve never actually covered the song before in their life.
It makes for some good, yet at times uncomfortable, entertainment.
A few weeks back, I discovered a TikTok account called kanyewesternai, where it’s full of AI videos of Kanye West’s voice covering a number of country songs, from Zach Bryan, to Morgan Wallen, Zac Brown Band, Midland, and more…
And sheesh, if nobody had ever heard of Kanye West or any of the artists who actually sing the songs on this page, you would’ve thought that Ye was an actual country artist.
Just see for yourself:

With that being said, here we are again.
And this time, it’s Kanye West singing Josh Turner’s 2006 smash hit, “Your Man.”
The video was posted to the YouTube page “Spotlight,” and my God, I think I’ve seen enough… this whole AI things needs to be stopped.
My mind has been put through a blender… I’ll simply never be able to unhear this for the rest of my life.
