I promise this is not a rickroll.
The original king of memes did us all a solid last Friday and covered Bruno Mars' Uptown Funk. I guess 'totally kill a cover of a current pop song' wasn't included on his original list of things he wouldn't do.
I'll admit, the only song I've heard by Rick Astley is 'Never Gonna Give You Up', and now I kind of feel bad since he's clearly a talented artist. I wouldn't say it's better than the original, but he definitely added his own special flare to it. Definitely worth almost getting rickrolled for, right?
