Kelly Clarkson’s cover of Rihanna’s “We Found Love” is TOO GOOD!
Yes, we absolutely do DIE for Kelly Clarkson’s original songs, but how can we NOT beg her to release a cover album after she continuously nails every cover she attempts!? If you’ve been MIA, or perhaps had mono for the past few months (p.s. that sucks, sorry!), we’ll remind you that while out on her “Stronger” tour, Kelly has been taking cover song requests via Twitter. The “Dark Side” singer has already covered Florence + The Machine’s “Shake It Out,” Eminem’s “Lose Yourself,” Britney Spears’ “Everytime, No Doubt’s “Don’t Speak, TLC’s “No Scrubs, and THE LIST GOES ON! We know, it’s ridiculous.
After flawlessly covering all of the above, now you can add Rihanna’s “We Found Love” to Kelly’s imaginary tribute album (which we want so badly to be real…like a musical unicorn). Kelly totally nailed Rihanna’s VMA-winning song, but still managed to infuse it with just the right amount of trademark Kelly along the way. Sure, K-Clark’s version may have been missing Calvin Harris’ infectious beat, but then again, who gives an eff about a dance beat when you’ve got Kelly’s voice lulling you into a coma of pure pop bliss? You know we’re right!
