Rita Ora slayed her cover of Gotye’s ’Somebody That I Used To Know.’
Does the world need another Gotye “Somebody That I Used To Know” cover? Absolutely not. But, can we and should we make an exception for this week’s PUSH artist Rita Ora’s version? Absolutely yes! During her concert at NYC’s Gramercy Theater this past Tuesday, the “How We Do (Party)” singer put her own spin on the massive hit and naturally, she killed it.
Watch Rita Ora cover Gotye’s “Somebody That I Used To Know” after the jump.
Backed by her band, Rita infused her sultry, vibrato-laden R&B pipes into Gotye’s verse and even threw in some sugary sweet pop riffs just to make it special only to her. Sadly, the video cuts out before we can see if anyone took over Kimbra’s part, but Rita is so fly that she could probably sing both sections while re-enacting the music video, body paint and all. Or even better, maybe next time she should call her BFF Drake to help her out with that second verse? Yep, brill idea.
