Rihanna Covers War: LIGHTS Versus Kelly Clarkson

Ranked as the fourth most powerful celebrity in the world this year by Forbes, it’s no surprise that Rihanna‘s music is influencing music’s leading ladies. Both LIGHTS and Kelly Clarkson have interpreted the chart-toppers’ singles differently but which do you prefer – listen below and decide who does it better for yourself.

LIGHTS – ‘We Found The Love’

The original version of the song sold more than 5.2 million copies but that didn’t scare LIGHTS from covering ‘Talk That Talk’s lead single. She originally tackled the track late last year for On-Airstreaming.com but a new video recording of the performance has been recently released. You can listen to the audio below but if you want to watch the cover, head over to Alter The Press to watch the latest video.
