Cam Newton Sings (Acapella) The Weeknd’s ‘Earned It’ (Video)

Cam Newton

Cam Newton took to the local KISS-FM radio station (does every city have one?) in Charlotte, and sat down with some DJ hosts. But rather than answer the typical questions about that we’d expect non-sports hosts to ask, he performed an acapella version of The Weeknd’s “Earned It.”

Is there some subtext for picking this song? I have no idea. Probably not. Normally, radio morning shows aren’t huge on the whole “subtext” thing. It’s what you see is what you get.

Here’s the clip:

He seems to be enjoying himself, even if the rendition will give the original artist little to worry about in the way of competition. Maybe he should just focus on football for the time being and save his career as an R&B vocalist until after retirement. Or push it off even longer. Like, forever. He’s not terrible, but let’s save this kind of thing for the pros.
