Michael Buble Sings Frank Ocean’s “Super Rich Kids”: Watch

As Michael Buble readied his new album To Be Loved, he cited an incredibly specific influence to the record. “When we started [To Be Loved], the very first concept I had was to bring it back and make a Phil Spector wall-of-sound record — that great Motown, live and off-the-cuff feeling — and sing it as best as a white guy could sing it,” Buble said, as if about to laugh. “I don’t know how else to say that.”

So, Buble is kind of a goofball. He showed off this side to him at his Ellen performance of “It’s a Beautiful Day,” and at VH1 on Friday, he offered yet another glimpse. When asked of what he would sing at karaoke, Buble didn’t hesitate. “Not that I’ve thought about it, but maybe a little Frank Ocean,” he said, before he broke into (squeaky) lines of channel ORANGE‘s “Super Rich Kids.”

“Super Rich Kids” bears its own unique influences; it borrows its hook from Mary J. Blige‘s “Real Love” and single-chord piano pounds from Elton John‘s “Benny and the Jets.” Perhaps Buble could take notes from channel ORANGE, if he ever decided to update his sound. For now, as he continues to promote To Be Loved, Buble has simply decided to apologize. “Three less people just bought a Frank Ocean record,” he said, after he stopped singing. “Sorry, dude.”
