In the Golden Age of musical theatre Broadway standards were covered by the hit recording artists of the day, including Eydie Gorme, Frank Sinatra, Judy Garland and Barbra Streisand. But you'd be hard pressed to find a contemporary artist hitting the U.S. charts with a cover of a Broadway song.


Rapper Kanye West may change that. While he's not "covering" a particular song, he does appear to be using samples of "Popular" from Stephen Schwartz's hit Oz-inspired musical Wicked.

Rapdar.com picked up on the video that shows Kanye working on his new album in the studio. He can be heard mixing Kristin Chenoweth's performance from the original cast album of Wicked. Kanye's latest album is tentatively titled "Good Ass Job."

Here's a look. Maybe it will be… populer… lar?
