Cover Star: Mikayla Sings Rihanna’s ‘Kiss It Better’

A a brief rest on the bench, Cover Star is back!

Today’s spotlight is shined on Florida bred songbird Mikayla Jade, who takes flight with Rihanna‘s ‘Kiss It Better.’

Despite its odd chart run, the cut remains one of the most-praised on the star’s ‘ANTI’ album.

How did Mikayla fare? Find out below…

Boasting a sweet tone and ample vocal control, Mikayla delivered with her delicious rendition.

Hers is a voice that is altogether lighter than the original, which helped put a fresh spin on the track. She also used it skilfully to showcase the different shades of her varied vocal palette.

Great performance.

      Lmao now this proves Sam is a hater because this is messy and all over the place; trying to throw shade and insinuate this girl has a more varied vocal palette than the original singer (Rihanna). Brain dead Devil have several seats.

    She kinda sounds like a water down version of Ariana grande. Good luck though. Wish her the best and hopes she accomplishes all her goals and dreams

    She has the control but it was a little all over the place. Definitely not the best cover I seen. There is one a guy did that was superb!

    Not bad. A solo vocal with no sweetening, and stripped down instrumentation, is not easy. She’s got a decent number of subscribers, so she must be doing something right.
