Desiigner has been having a pretty good week: Last Saturday, he ducked a gun and intent to sell charge in New York City (though he's still not totally out of the woods, legally speaking) and now, he's got the ear of yet another big voice in pop music.


Yesterday, Alicia Keys shared a piano-laden cover of Desiigner's much-hyped track, "Tiimmy Turner," which was originally spun out of the New York rapper's freestyle for XXL magazine and is now sitting at No. 34 on the Billboard Hot 100. For her version of the song, Keys alters the name of the song to honor legendary soul singer, Tina Turner, and makes the track less about a gun-slinging gangster and more about his ideal woman. Check out the video above.
