Watch: Rebecca Ferguson Covers Drake’s ‘Take Care’

Published: Monday 27th Feb 2012 by Sam

Platinum songbird Rebecca Ferguson is celebrating a year of trailblazing success with her first headline tour.

And while the trek sees the X Factor star serve up stirring renditions of her own material (such as chart-topper ‘Nothing’s Real But Love’), it also sees her give a soulful nod to other acts – including Drake.

Peep her take on the Young Money MC’s ‘Take Care’ at the jaunt’s Oxford stop below…

Yes, yes, and yes!

Ms. Rebecca nailed it! So much so that we’d love to see her experiment with such sounds on her sophomore set. I mean her debut, ‘Heaven’ was solid, however it would have greatly benefitted from more variation production-wise.

Still, the LP’s Platinum sales have afforded the Liverpudlian the chance to creatively expand on her next outing.

Whatever the case, it’s all sorts of awesome to see “true” talent excelling. More power to her!

Your thoughts?

    She’s actually covering the original version, not Drake’s.

    Love this girl. Tgj needs to post more on her other than trying to diss rihanna ànd Kim. She has one of the best voices I have heard coming out of the Uk next to Amy and Leona

    The Rihanna version is better,because it evokes the right emotions. the rihanna version is a conversation between two people so their was no need to over sing the song. this is two people talking about emotions talking not shouting. not every song a black person sing has to be shouting. sometime less is more .With Rihanna’s voice , you get the sense of two people trying to work out a relationship in a very civilize way. not like the typical black woman screaming at you when you try to discuss issues.

    I love rihanna just as much as Rebecca, both of their versions are good in their own way. Rebecca has a more soulful voice while rihanna has a lighter voices. But still both are good.

    @Xedos you get the sense of two people trying to work out a relationship in a very civilize way. not like the typical black woman screaming at you when you try to discuss issues.

    Clearly you’re either a racist or the “typical delusional black man who hates black women”.

    Anyway – thanks TGJ for promoting a new artist with talent. I’ve said this before on other posts you’ve made about Rebecca but she is a breath of fresh air in music. She’s a unique vocalist who co-writes her own lyrics and I hope that people give her music a chance.
