Some artists are known for releasing different versions of their songs. Who doesn’t love a good remix every now and then? But when other musicians get a hold of such popular tracks and put their own spin on them, we sometimes end up with magical and unexpected performances. For instance, there’s Amy Winehouse’s version of “Valerie,” originally by the Zutons. Or how about Al Greens’s version of “How Can You Mend a Broken Heart” by the Bee Gees? And who could ever forget Whitney Houston’s untouchable cover of Dolly Parton’s “I Will Always Love You”? Sometimes a unique cover can be bigger than the original when it’s just that well done. With that being said, check out a few fresh takes (recent and distant) from artists all over the world and stars on the rise. Afterward, feel free to share a few of your favorite covers in the comment section.
