The 6 Best Covers Of 2016 (So Far)

Best Covers 2016 M3

Hello, Walk Off The Earth feat. Myles and Isaac
Original Artist: Adele

Canadian rockers Walk Off the Earth never disappoint with their covers, both for bringing emotional performances and for utilizing the most surprising instruments. Are they using pant zippers? Hell-o yes.

Work, DNCE
Original Artist: Rihanna

Joe Jonas supergroup DNCE are entering Walk Off The Earth territory with their new cover of Rihanna’s Work. Using a box full of office supplies, the band could have totally scored a sweet Staples endorsement with this cover. Three-ring binders fo lyfe.

Pillowtalk, Conor Maynard
Original Artist: Zayn Malik

Brit pop singer Conor Maynard has produced some smash singles in the past five years that somehow haven’t propelled him to Bieber-status. What does get a whole lot of YouTube views are Maynard’s goosebump-inducing covers, like this one of Zayn Malik’s Pillowtalk. Who knew such a sexual song could totally be used as the first dance at a wedding?!

Love Yourself, Halsey
Original Artist: Justin Bieber

We thought singer Halsey was sticking close to Justin Bieber’s original version of Love Yourself until she got to the chorus. Get it, gurl.

Here, Shawn Mendes
Original Artist: Alessia Cara

Toronto teens are having a freaking moment on the world stage right now and we are loving it. Even better? They’re showing their Canadian pride by covering one another when performing abroad. Timbits for everyone!

Same Old Mistakes, Rihanna
Original Artist: Tame Impala

Rihanna didn’t do too much to change up Tame Impala’s Same Old Mistakes for her album Anti and we don’t blame her. Why try to improve on transcendental awesomeness when you can just sing it and chilllll.
