Ant Clemons Covers Bill Withers’ ‘Ain’t No Sunshine’

R&B

Ant Clemons is the latest artist to perform for The Recording Academy’s ReImagined at Home series. The singer-songwriter recorded his take on the late Bill Withers’ 1971 classic “Ain’t No Sunshine.” 

Clemons, stationed in a recording booth, put down a woefully impressive performance of the melancholy track, showcasing his appreciation for the past. 

If you didn’t know, “Ain’t No Sunshine” won Best R&B Song at the 14th Grammy Awards in 1972. It peaked at No. 3 on the Billboard Hot 100 the year before. 

Since becoming a Grammy-winning singer/songwriter in March for his work on Kanye West’s Jesus Is King, Clemons has earned a writing placement (“One Light”) on Maroon 5’s latest album JORDI

He has seen his “Damage” contribution with H.E.R. shoot to No. 1 on urban radio. “It was such a fun session, bouncing ideas off of each other, trying to make sure that we told the story the right way. I’m just honored to be a part of that phenomenal song,” Clemons told Rated R&B in a 2021 Grammy profile. 

Clemons recently appeared on Charlie Heat’s new album (Valentine’s Son) and shared the new song “Story of My Life.” In February, Clemons issued an anniversary edition of last year’s Happy 2 Be Here
