Ellie Goulding Covers Rihanna’s Only Girl

Talk about stamping your authority on a song. The talented Ellie Goulding recorded this on Friday morning for BBC’s Live Lounge, and ignored the techno vibe of the original, opting for an organic, easier-on-the-ear version of her own.

Not only are we treated to her unique vocals, but she’s backed by a string section that improve this track immeasurably, giving it a richer sound. It’s not difficult to improve on Rihanna’s vocals, but Ellie undoubtedly goes a step further with this superb cover.
