The Best Drake & Rihanna Cover You’ve Ever Heard


Vibe / November 28, 2011

Produced by Jamie xx, Drake and former fling Rihanna’s title track “Take Care” has become a fan favorite. Out of their mutual admiration, Florence Welch appeared live on BBC Radio 1’s Live Lounge to do a stunning cover of the song. Backed by a string section, its starts out slow–then accelerates into a chilling crescendo with pulsating drums and keyboards. This breathless performance makes you wish the two would finally find some time to collaborate together.–Eric Diep
