Trending Pinoy covers of ‘Versace on the Floor’


Halle Berry shared a clip showing her glamorous feature as she strips of her Versace gown and jumping into a pool. Take note, the post-Oscars video is in slow motion and Bruno Mars’s hit “Versace on the Floor” is playing in the background.

“Versace on the Floor” is definitely a worldwide hit that even Hollywood stars have been caught humming the sensual ditty. The song is part of the Mars’s third studio album 24K Magic and serves as the first promotional single when it was released in November.

Rolling Stone describes the song as a shimmery ode to the champagne flutes and rose petal-romance of Philly soul bands like the Stylistics while it distractingly borrows from the 90s sound of Selena’s “Dreaming of You” and Michael Jackson’s “Man in the Mirror.”

But to everyone who’s got hypnotized by the LSS-inducing song, it is nothing but the anthem of 2017, and no song has come close to challenge it thus far. Without a doubt “Versace on the Floor” has taken the entire music world by storm. And of course when we talk about global trends, Pinoy would definitely come up with their own version of any hit.

Here’s a list of local “Versace” covers that immediately became viral as soon as they hit the World Wide Web:
