Lianne La Havas – Only Girl in the World (Rihanna)


Our girl Lianne takes on Rihanna’s Billboard #1 “Only Girl in the World”. If you know Lianne’s music, you’re probably like whaaaaaa? But don’t let the source material scare you, this cover is 100% LLH style. Lianne takes “OGitW” on to a more jazzy sort of tip, backed up here by a piano-led instrumental. Aside from La Havas’ brilliance here, another key takeaway for us was just the reminder at how phenomenal the melodies on “Only Girl in the World” are and to hear them vocalized like this and in this style is a real pleasure.
