In a welcomed display, true vocalist Florence Welch lent her signature stylings to that of another true vocalist, Grammy winning
vocal less Rihanna, when she tackled ‘Take Care’ – the title track from Torontoian rapper Drake‘s #1 album. The cut in its original form has already won fans over, but what happens when a person with discernible talent drops her voice over the two autotune abusers?
The results after the jump:
True vocals 101.
In all fairness, Welch did not exactly capture Rihanna’s lower registry parts as well as Drake’s. Whereas it may not be difficult to outdo either Rihanna or Rihanna’s flunkie, given that vocal mediocrity is where Riri shines brightest, there is an essence to the song that she provided in her barely there vocals that gave the song signature.
But, such comes with putting her own spin on the song. For, seemingly with minimal effort Welch did something the power of two couldn’t do – make the song impressive. Not hard to do when covering the type of artist who can’t even do his/her own song justice. The only thing more impressive would probably be seeing Drake & Rihanna do this song live and it be…well…”ok”.
