Ever since it was announced the ‘X Factor’ contestants would be taking on Motown songs on Saturday (15 October) night’s live show, we’ve spent the last seven days wondering what on earth Honey G will be performing.

Honey G won fans over on last week's show

Well, ladies and gents, we can now reveal the North Weezy rapper will be taking on Notorious B.I.G’s ‘Mo Money Mo Problems’. 

Errrrrrm, last time we checked that wasn’t a Motown classic?!

However, after digging a little deeper, we realised that the song actually samples Diana Ross’ ‘I’m Coming Out’, which IS a Motown song. 

While it’s a pretty tenuous link, there’s definitely been less convincing takes on the themes over the years.
