Would we mark a recording a cover for a duet even if one of the artist is the original artist while the other part is sung by another artist?


#2

I’d probably let this depend on who is the main artist of the later recording. If it’s the original artist, then I wouldn’t consider it a cover, if it’s the other one then yes.


#3

Yes something like @paulakreuzer.
But generally I just would not mark it as cover if any of the writer or original performers is here.


#4

But what if it’s sung “unofficially” as in they sing it with a fan and not officially released?


#5

That doesn’t make it a cover, just an “unofficial” recording (whatever that means).
