Cover Star: Ebon Lurks Sings Chris Brown’s ‘Sweet Love’

This week’s That Grape Juice Cover Star is Ebon Lurks. Watch as the young crooner take on Chris Brown‘s latest R&B hit ‘Sweet Love’ below:

Boasting a blend of Jason Mraz and Justin Bieber (vocally), Ebon puts an interesting pop twist on a very straightforward R&B cut.  And, while not decorating the cut with the embellishments (runs, riffs) that Brown generally treats his tunes to, Lurks’ acoustic arrangement still managed to not take away from ‘Love’.  Good showing!

Cover Star: Sarai Sings Nicki Minaj & Chris Brown’s ‘Right By My Side’

This week’s That Grape Juice Cover Star is Sarai. Watch as the US native take on Nicki Minaj‘s latest hit ‘RightBy My Side (ft. Chris Brown)’ below:

As much as we love us some Nicki, Roman, and all else embedded in Onika, singing clearly isn’t her strongest card. Hence, to hear this melody driven cut performed by a wholly capable vocalist (who, most importantly, was able to render it her own / see: adblibs), was refreshing. Very.

Cover Star: Shantee Tyler Sings Brandy & Monica’s ‘It All Belongs To Me’

This week’s That Grape Juice Cover Star is Shantee Tyler. Watch the singer, who was born in Germany, raised in Denver, and resides in Atlanta, tackle Brandy and Monica‘s recent duet ‘It All Belongs To Me’ below:

While not boasting the horse-power of the cut’s original performers, Shantee (who you may recognise from MTV’s Making The Band) turned in a wholly solid performance. Controlled, yet daring (see: applying her own adlibs), her rendition puts a fresh twist on the track. Good stuff.

Cover Star: Ari Lourdes Sings Rihanna’s ‘Where Have You Been’

This week’s That Grape Juice Cover Star is Ari Lourdes. Watch the US native tackle Rihanna‘s latest single ‘Where Have You Been’ below:

Boasting a Pop, yet powerful tone, Lourdes joins the ever-growing line of acts who can sing Rihanna songs better than Rihanna. (Truthful) jokes aside, the young sonstress served up a solid and original take on a great song. We like. Do you?

Cover Star: DiiJai Sings Whitney Houston’s ‘I Have Nothing’

After a brief rest on the bench, That Grape Juice Cover Star is back! This week sees DiiJai tackle Whitney Houston‘s classic ‘I Have Nothing’.

Check out his showing below:

Powerful, emotive, and yet controlled. A stunning showing; one which serves as a contemporary throwback to days of old where male artists “SANG”. With music rotating in cycles, here’s hoping the return of “the vocalists” is nigh.

Cover Star: Nez Sings Kelly Rowland’s ‘Motivation’

This week’s That Grape Juice Cover Star is Nezanet. The Londoner serves up a stirring take on Kelly Rowland‘s R&B smash ‘Motivation’.

Check out her showing below:

Lyrics on the phone aside, Nez nailed this! Confident and controlled, she delivered a fresh take on a great song. Indeed, her adlibs were the variety we wish Rowland herself would dabble with more – both on record and live.

Great performance; the type the British industry would benefit from seeing much more of on our charts.
