The Hottest Covers On YouTube

You might start preferring them to the original

 

 

Part of the beauty of music is that it can be interpreted in so many ways. A rock song, with the right hand, can be appreciated by someone that prefers the classics. Likewise, a pop song can be given a grunge twist and a ballad can be remixed into a fast-rising EDM classic.

 

Sometimes, covers don’t work. But other times, they arguably end up better than the original tracks.

 

Send My Love

Original: Adele

Cover: KHS, Sam Tsui, Madilyn Bailey, Alex G

 

This Patty Cake cover is going to melt your acapella-loving heart. Four talents and a beautifully shot music video make for one of our favorite covers.

 

 

I’m Not The Only One

Original: Sam Smith

Cover: Leroy Sanchez

 

Nothing but a guitar, a car and the voice of an angel. This simple cover by Leroy Sanchez gives Sam Smith a run for his money.

 

 

So Into You

Original: Tamia

Cover: Childish Gambino

 

Donald Glover will sweep you away with this sweet rendition So Into You. The instruments are kept to a minimum, which means we have full appreciation of his vocals.

 

 

Attention

Original: Charlie Puth

Cover: Boyce Avenue

 

Boyce Avenue built their brand on their amazing covers and their version of Attention is no exception.

 

 

Call Your Girlfriend

Original: Robyn

Cover: Christopher

 

A little more melodic and a lot more intimate, this cover of Call Your Girlfriend will have you searching for something more.

 

 

Cold Water

Original: Major Lazer feat. Justin Bieber and MØ

Cover: Conor Maynard

 

Stripping a song down is a classic way to change it up, but Conor Maynard’s version of Cold Water isn’t what you might expect. It’s slow yet upbeat, and it had us wishing that the track had more verses to listen to.
