Video: Jessie Ware – “Diamonds”(Rihanna cover)

February 14, 2013 1 comment

Everyone already knows I think Jessie Ware is IT and luckily she stopped over at BBC Radio 1 to make this happen. Now, what kind of magic can Jessie Ware pull on a track I’ve only enjoyed in jest? Straight up sorcery. Jessie takes the Rihanna pop ballad and strips it down to it’s bare bones. And it’s not really a shocker that I like this cover better than the original. If you for some reason doubted Ware’s vocal ability, I think this cover should clear things up for you. I wish I could hire Jessie to sing me all the lullabies.
