In popular music, a cover version or cover song, or simply cover, is a new performance or recording of a previously recorded song.

In hip hop, putting one's original rap over another's beat is often called freestyling, though the term is more definitively used when referring to improvised rapping. This category includes only Nicki Minaj's covers of others' songs, which are not necessarily improvised but do not (usually) include the originals' lyrics. For improvised freestyles by Minaj, see freestyles.
