Hugo‘s new video for “Bread and Butter” shows the artist in his own comfort zone, pure soulful rock and roll, dedicated to the ladies. But the song that got him a deal on Roc Nation was a country-twanged cover of Jay Z‘s “99 Problems.”

Video by Hugo: “99 Problems”

Born in England and raised in Thailand, Hugo is a new artist signed to Jay-Z‘s Roc Nation label, and he’s put a spin on “99 Problems” that  no one saw coming. Like it or not, it’s a drastically different twist on the classic Jigga track that has the chance to bring the song to an entirely new audience. This is a single off of his upcoming album, Old Tyme Religion, which Hugo believes to be as mainstream as anything out there now – almost like an artful twist on pop and rock.
