    In an alternative universe... all these singers are singing the songs they were intended to... That's kind of weird to think about.. And it suddenly occurred to me... in another alternative universe... all the singers are singing songs that weren't intended for them (swapping songs around from this universe to other singers)

    Okay so Imma just say this now and he might use it for a video idea but - autotune your voice to sound like ( Or at least close ) to the original artist and then sing the intended song for the intended artist! I think that'd be one awesome video.

    Justin Timberlake co-wrote Rock Your Body. So I don't see how it was originally entended for Jackson to sing it. 2 websites say Timberlake wrote the co-wrote the song. Now it does have a very Michael Jackson Vibe to it but are they sure they aren't thinking of Michael Jackson's song Rock With You?? Just saying.

    Fun facts about Sia: Titanium by Sia and David Guetta it was originally written by Sia for Alicia Keys. Chandelier written by Sia for Rihanna. Alive written for Adele. Unstoppable for Demi Lovato and some other famous artist, I don't remember who between Rihanna, Demi or Beyoncè. Her entire album This is acting was for other artists. Sia has also written hits for Shakira, Celine Dion (3+), Britney Spears (+2), for Beyoncè i think like 3 songs. Sia wrote Sledgehammer (Star Trek) for Rihanna. She wrote for Ariana Grande and Camila Cabello. She wrote also Chained to the Rhythm for Katy Perry and co-wrote Hey Hey Hey for Katy and she co-wrote Ole Ola for Pitbull and Jennifer Lopez (yeah, that song) She also wrote other songs for Katy and Kelly Clarkson. Ne-yo, Pink, Cheyenne Jackson, Try Everything for Shakira (yeah, the Disney Hit, that hit). Pretty Hurts for Beyoncè. She wrote also for Christina Aguilera and she has collaborated with Alicia Keys and Gwen Stefani, Dolly Parton, Dua Lipa, Avicii, Afrojack, David Guetta etc etc etc. Too longo bye

    Maybe you can make a video using the voices of the artists to sing the lyrics of the songs, that would be interesting to actually make a video using tools to get more of an idea of how it may have gone with that singer.
