Listening to covers of your favorite artists' songs oftentimes only lead you to utter disappointment. Quiet frankly, it can sound like nails on a chalkboard if it doesn’t live up to your high standards of satisfaction! BUT, there are very rare, and I mean RARE, occasions where musical geniuses take a hit song and transform it into the track that you just can’t stop hitting repeat!


Here are six covers that will most certainly change your life. You're welcome!


6. “Lay Me Down” -- Nick Jonas

Although it is extremely hard to compare to the godly talented, Sam Smith, Jonas surely doesn’t disappoint!




5. “Rude” -- The Vamps

You can’t help but swoon at these adorable guys as they take on Magic's hit song! It’s been two years since these gents have performed in our Studio, and since then their success has skyrocketed!

These two powerhouses SLAY when brought together for this Crowded House cover. They also happen to be wearing the cutest outfits on the planet.




3. “Better Have My Money” -- Kelly Clarkson

Bet you didn't see THAT one coming! Clarkson throws her own spin on Rihanna’s summer hit song and we’re LOVING it!
