Cover Star: Tracie Sings Rihanna’s Russian Roulette

Published: Saturday 21st Aug 2010 by Trent

Check out That Grape Juice’s latest Cover Star singing Rihanna’s Russian Roulette. The young performer, who hails from Houston, Texas, belts out the track while perched on her kitchen counter. Her performance can be seen below:

Tracie did more than cover the song; she knocked it out of the park! Vocal on point and passionate, Tracie took the record to a whole new place. It’s amazing how good a music sounds when performed by someone with actual talent.

Peep more performances from Tracie on her Youtube channel.

    I’m sorry but she killed Rihanna’s track.

    Lets hope Rihanna never sees this cover. She completely made this song her own. Go Tracie!

    It was nice. I was not that blown away, but she did do a good job. She does have a voice. She sings better than some in the industry.

  5. lax August 21, 2010

    @ emm13 you said a mouth full and i agree with you.

  6. ENJAY August 21, 2010

    That yodeling was no different from the original version. Im sorry..she sounds like Rhianna.

  7. allen August 21, 2010

    seriously when i here or see any one sayin rihanna has no talen t it annoys me because if she was so talented then why doesnt she have seven numba ones what rihanna has accomplished none of u b****** cannot accomplish it even if u where given the chance ha ha ha bitchesssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssss

  8. OoOshii August 21, 2010

    @ALLEN Agreed….

  9. OoOshii August 21, 2010

    ohh and trent? Epic fail gone platinum….

  10. HeLLo August 21, 2010

    Sry but this wasnt that great and not better than RIhanna. Her voice is not as strong as RIhannas. And co-sgn, she sounds like a sheep when she drags the words.

    She has talent but lol, TGJ is always kelly rowlanding (aka over-reacting).

  11. Kyus93 August 21, 2010

    This b**** is boring, sorry! Rihanna is the Queen!

  12. malyeh August 21, 2010

    I prefer when Rihanna’s sings it, even if she may do some false notes, she has a unique voice that makes Russian Roulette so special.

  13. KRS022 August 21, 2010

    ha!ha!ha! LMAOOOOOOOOO they both have the yodeling sound.

  14. Curtis August 21, 2010

    How is this better? I can be objective unlike these silly b****** running around here being grumpy cause they don’t have d**** up their ass or any to suck but Rihanna’s is way better.

    If you’re gonna do a back handed insult find someone who has a special voice, no joke this girl is no good.

    @Trent —

    “It’s amazing how good music sounds when performed by someone with actual talent.”<–MY LORD, Trent, Camp-Fenty will be "FURIOUS …!"

    …Bwaahahahahahahahah….

    to all of you sh^t talkers just remember this rihanna stays on your brains and say what you want to about her. write a negative header up on her it still will not stop her . shes on the #1 spot in almost every country in the world you see., and on billboard, she and eminem has control of the billboard charts ——hot 100——billboard 200—–radio—–digital songs-
    digital album—-ringtone—pop—-r&b/hip-hop—-rap—canadaian hot 100—canadian album–ilike libraries—-ilike profile—-yahoo video
    THAT MY DEAR HATERS AND SH^T TALKERS, LIARS, A/H AND BASHERS AND LOOSERS IS FOURTEEN SPOTS ON BILLBOARD ALONG AND IF THAT IS NOT DOING THE DAM THING YOUR ASS IS NOT HOOKED ON TO THE BACK OF YOUR BODIES.
    AND WORLD WIDE SO TALK ALL THE SH^T YOU WANT TO RIHANNA IS HERE TO KEEP YOUR BLOOD BOILING MAD LMAO,,,,,,ROFL,,, @ YOU PRESSED A/H.

  17. lax August 21, 2010

    right about now eminem and rihanna has the whole world buzzing about their new music , and the video. black folks are so crabbed in a barrel and coke headed up that they do not see are hear whats good because their brains are only programmed one way and that on the getto mentality spot on the dial and getto is where they will always stay. but one thing is for sure rihanna will be working your getto brains overtime from now on. and its great that the young lady did the song that shows that rihanna is the badass that she is because like i said she stays forever on your minds, brains and in your mouths. all of your negativity is helping to get and keep rihanna just where she wants to be and you know the rest., loosers.

  18. Soulful Roses August 21, 2010

    YES!…Houston,Texas in the house..lol!

    Anyways, she sound great in my opinion. The people up top are being baised because they are fans and stans. Those same people stay fighting for Rihanna tooth and nail when Trent and San pos about her…

  19. Soulful Roses August 21, 2010

  20. zih August 21, 2010

    good voice but she falters a bit somewhere and her sining is a bit monotonous IMO. but good effort! still think rihanna was better cuz her voice is haunting enough and it suits the track.

  21. EXPOSED August 21, 2010

    IT’S TOO BAD THAT BLACKS ARE THE LARGEST MINORITY IN THE STATES AND ANYONE THAT’S NON BLACK OR NON WHITE CANT MAKE IT CUZ THEY LACK THE FANBASE AND SUPPORT OUTSIDE THEIR RACE. TRUTH!!! CHARICE IS EXCELLENT EXAMPLE. NO DOUBT THE B**** CAN SING BUT BECAUSE SHE DOESNT HAVE THE FAN SUPPORT OUTSIDE HER RACE SHE EPIC FLOPPED ON HER FIRST ALBUM. NOW SHE HAS TO GO ON GLEE TO REBUILD HER FANBASE.

    BLACKS HAVE MONOPOLIZED THE TERM “MINORITY” IN THE US. TRACY BUI IS CASE IN POINT. NOW IF SHE WAS BLACK OR WHITE SHE MIGHT HAVE HAD A RECORD DEAL BY NOW. SHE NEEDS TO LEARN SOME KOREAN OR CHINESE AND SING KPOP OR CANTO-POP TO GET ANY REAL SUCCESS OVERSEAS. SAD, CUZ IT AINT HAPPENING IN THE US. NOT TO MENTION RAIN, BOA, AND OTHERS WHO TRIED IN THE US ALSO FAILED MASSIVELY BUT ARE HUGE SUCCESSES IN THEIR OWN COUNTRY. BOTTOM LINE, ASIANS IN US ENTERTAINMENT AINT MARKETABLE UNLESS ITS CLASSICAL MUSIC. SO NO MATTER HOW TALENTED OR HOW MUCH BETTER SHE SINGS OVER RIHANNA PEOPLE WILL ALWAYS SAYS SHE SUCKS BECUZ SHE DOESNT FIT THE RACIAL PROFILE OF WHAT IS MARKETABLE STATESIDE.

  22. MrIncredible August 21, 2010

    this was ok. nothing to write home about.

  23. True Blue August 21, 2010

    Is by any stretch she a great singer? No.

    Is she, however, a better singer than Rihanna? Yes.

    Did she sing this song better than Rihanna ever did in her live performances? Yes.

    Would I respect Rihanna if she could sing at least as well as this chick, or even her album recordings? Yes.

  24. ILOVEXTINA August 21, 2010

    she sounded kinda like Rihanna?

  25. True Blue August 21, 2010

    ^^^ Except far less whiny.

  26. raraskils August 21, 2010

    omg she gave me chills. 0___0

    we need more asian chicks in the game. amerie just doesn’t cut it. there’s plenty of talented and beautiful asian girls out there that can really sing.

  27. NAS ( B Rockah Stan 4eva) August 21, 2010

    Come on Trent, this girl’s voice is OK. Maybe you should see other covers done on youtube which will actually blow your mind. That said this was OK to me.

  28. ADE August 21, 2010

    Um no Trent, try again. Her voice is plain as hell, nothing to scream about.

  29. vegasgirl August 21, 2010

    O.K. voice, seen better covers on You tube of this song.

  30. VA STAND UP!! August 22, 2010

    @Vegas Girl: Agreed. I have seen much better covers of this on Youtube.

    Thus chick was ok, but not phenomenal. *Shrugs* I think I like Rihanna’s studio version better, but this is definitely better than any of Rihanna’s live performance. When Rihanna performs this live all she does is scream, she doesn’t hit any notes.

  31. Carrington August 22, 2010

    What is your issue with Rihanna, seriously? No, seriously. I’ve seen you go crazy for artist who are marginally talented (prime example above) but for some reason, Rihanna seems to kill your spirit. LMAO.

    From what I can tell, Rihanna sings the way she sings purposely, the “yodeling” affect is designed to give her voice an edge, it’s a vocal affectation that makes her sound distinctive, just as Cher had an affectation when she when she carries her notes at the end, Michael Jackson had an affectation with, “he hee” , Whitney Houston uses one from time to time with, “Yay ee, ee ee” – it’s what she does.

    Rihanna may not be your cup of tea, but GEEZ, get over it. If the people who read this site everactually LISTEN to the people you actually try to force on us, they’re ABSOLUTELY aware of the fact that you wouldn’t know talent if it sang you to sleep every night, and with that said, “you’re wasting your time with these Rihanna rants.”

    I’m out.

    WTF do y’all mean that was okay? Man, I guess anybody who can carry a tune and hit some notes can sing in y’all opinion. That was horrible! I couldn’t even finish. Her voice sucks and is seriously no better than Rihanna’s. And for the dummy who said Rihanna’s voice is stronger, no, her voice is just louder!
