Any lingering fears that Patrick Stump’s second chin had imbued him, Samson-like, with his precocious musical talent have thus far proved unfounded – and a good thing, too, because the weight appears to be staying off and the erstwhile Fall Out Boy frontman has a solo career to launch.

As a prelude to the release of his first album on his lonesome, Soul Punk, in February Stump put together a fairly impressive medley of Grammy-nominated tracks, performed a capella with the man himself providing back-up vocals. Impressively, it’s all done on camera, so we quite literally get to see Stumpy playing with himself – he performs a fluid mash of Jay-Z and Alicia Keys’ ‘Empire State of Mind,’ Eminem and Rihanna’s ‘Love the Way You Lie,’ Lady Antebellum’s ‘Need You Now,’ B.o.B. and Bruno Mars’ ‘Nothin’ on You’ and Cee-Lo’s ‘Fuck You’ (mercifully uncensored).

It’s interesting to note that Stump’s studio looks more like an oversized emptied closet than a state-of-the-art recording space, though perhaps that’s fitting given his rather unfortunate choice of clothing.

He has always been a great singer, the band he was in just sucked. Like how the drummer from Yellowcard is really fucking amazing it's just nobody never realizes it because he was in a pop punk band lol

He was always a good singer..........fall out boy was just awful though. He was the only talent in that band. Unlike their god awful bassist.

Aw. He's wearing a bowtie. How cool.
He looks like an awkward little boy, but it's cute and he's talented. He needs to stop pushing it though. It's like listening to those kids who know they can sing, but stretch it out and do that vibrato whatever thing so much you just want to punch their jaw close.
