Well, isn’t this a pleasant surprise. If you’re going to perform at the world famous London club, G-A-Y Heaven, naturally a cover of the fiercest drag queen is in order, right?

Jade, Jesy, Leigh-Anne, and Perrie aka Little Mix sashayed their little hearts out to RuPaul’s classic “Supermodel (You Better Work)” before busting out into a cover of “Sissy That Walk.” Perrie slung her ponytail like the rent was due ;) You better work!!!

The girls also performed their latest single “Black Magic.” Still love this song and hope it’s a hit for the British quartet. Check out both clips below.

Not only does Matt Bomer show off his impeccable toned physique in Magic Mike XXL, but the 37-year-old also puts his vocal chops on display as well. And HOT DAMN!!! His voice is sexier than his body. Who knew?

Bomer does a surprisingly great cover of D’Angelo’s sultry hit, “Untitled (How Does It Feel?).” The only thing that could make his rendition hotter is if he replicates D’Angelo’s music video frame by sexy frame.

Check out Matt’s rendition below, along with his cover of Bryan Adams’ “Heaven.” Be prepared to swoon. If People magazine doesn’t one day pick Matt as the Sexiest Man Alive, it’ll be a huge travesty.

Lauryn Hill Delivers Sensational Nina Simone Cover

In: Donovan, Music

Some of the brightest moments of her career occurred when she covered classics such “Can’t Take My Eyes Off You,” “Turn Your Lights Down Low” and the smash hit “Killing Me Softly.” The 40-year-old Grammy winner re-emerges to deliver another sensational song cover, or covers I should say.

To accompany Netflix’s upcoming Nina Simone documentary, What Happened, Miss Simone?, a number of musicians headed to the studio to honor the jazz icon. Lauryn Hill was originally set to only record two tracks but became so involved, she ended up tackling six songs.

“Because I fed on this music, both hers and lovers like her, like my basic food, I believed I always had a right to have a voice. Her example is clearly a form of sustenance to a generation needing to find theirs. What a gift.” – Lauryn Hill

Joining Hill on the album, Nina Revisited: A Tribute to Nina Simone, are Jazmine Sullivan, Mary J. Blige, Usher, Common and Lalah Hathaway to name a few. What Happened, Miss Simone? will premiere on Netflix on June 26. Check out Lauryn’s cover below.

It’s no secret I love Nick Jonas. Besides the obvious (his body), I’ve been pleasantly surprised by his solo album. With that being said, I’m a little disappointed with his latest appearance.

The “Jealous” singer stopped by the UK’s Capital FM recently. As they do with everyone who sits down, they persuade them to play a round of Instaoke. Three songs are randomly (yeah right) chosen for the guest to sing.

The imaginary wheel stopped on “Problem” (Ariana Grande), “Bye Bye Bye” (‘N Sync) And “Gold Digger” (Kanye West) for Nick. Dude doesn’t even remotely look like he’s into it. The most entertaining thing about the whole thing was the slight shade thrown at Grande’s expense. Watch the clip below.

Trey Songz Covers The Weeknd’s Earned It

In: Donovan, Music
trey-songz-covers-earned-it

As much as Robin Thicke likes to think he’s the Marvin Gaye of our time, I’d have to throw The Weeknd’s name in the ring. Everything the Canadian crooner releases just oozes sex. “Wicked Games,” “Earned It,” and his latest “The Hills” are panty-dropping anthems if I ever heard them.

Fellow R&B singer Trey Songz tries to get his seduction on by covering the Fifty Shades of Grey hit. Sometimes there’s too much of a good thing. Songz adds far too many ad-libs and melisma in an attempt to make the song his own. Don’t take my word for it, check it out below.

This needs to be a single stat!!! Miley Cyrus and Ariana Grande slay their cover of the 1986 classic “Don’t Dream It’s Over” by Crowded House. It’s soooo good.

The two recorded the track to raise funds for Cyrus’ Happy Hippie Foundation which supports homeless youth, LGBT youth and other vulnerable populations. They donned adorable onesies, unicorn for Miley and mouse for Ariana, for their karaoke session in the “Wrecking Ball’s” backyard. Check out the sensational cover below.

If not for the silly rule that song covers aren’t eligible for Oscars, I have no doubt Sia’s rendition of the 60s classic “California Dreamin‘” would be in contention. It’s so good. The Aussie recorded the track for The Rock’s upcoming disaster film, San Andreas. Colton Haynes, Carla Gugino and Kylie Minogue also appear in the movie.

The orchestral arrangement along with Sia’s vocals transform The Mamas & The Papas track into an epic haunting number. It’s chillingly beautiful. Don’t take my word for it, give it a listen below and weigh in afterward.

I’m kinda obsessed with this right now and can’t get enough.

English singer and songwriter Jasmine Thompson originally recorded a cover of Chaka Khan’s “Ain’t Nobody” a couple of years ago. Her rendition cracked the UK Top 40. It’s shocking how much she sounds like Ellie Goulding.

German producer Felix Jaehn has given her cover new life and transformed into a slinky chill dance jam. I fully expect with this makeover, it’ll become an even bigger hit than previously. Check out the cute clip below.
