Nick Jonas vs. Lorde: Whose Kanye West Cover Do You Like Better?
Nick Jonas recently dropped his epic cover of Kanye West's "Only One," and we've been obsessing about it ever since. And in the spirit of totally transformed Kanye covers, we couldn't help but be reminded of Lorde's version of "Flashing Lights." Whose Kanye West cover is your fave?
Nick Jonas turned Kanye West's auto-tune-heavy "Only One" into a song of pure beauty, showing off a more stripped-down version of the track, flaunting his gorgeous vocals. We're totally digging the almost old-school feel of the song, and Nick adds a little funky twist with the jazzy vibe of the piano. Nick's Kanye cover has pretty much the entire internet buzzing, and it's not hard to see why. Listen to him cover "Only One" below.
One of our favorite things about Lorde is her ability to take a song from an entirely different genre and make it so uniquely, well, Lorde. And that's exactly what she did with Kanye West's "Flashing Lights," giving the upbeat song a dose of her deep vocals, sultry feel and totally distance style. Of course, she incorporated actual flashing lights into her performance, which gives a slight nod to Mr. Kanye West himself.
