christine queens cover rihanna

We first encountered French pop superstar Christine and the Queens when she covered Kanye West’s “Heartless” with an unlikely twist: mixing in bits of 1973 French hit “Les Paradis Perdus.” Knowing that, it should be no surprise that the newly short-haired Christine doesn’t play her Rihanna cover for the BBC straight. Instead, throughout her powerful rendition of Rihanna’s “Kiss It Better,” she sprinkles in lines from Kate Bush’s “Wuthering Heights.”

Watch the video – really as much a dance performance as concert – below. We’ve also included another BBC Live Lounge cover she and her bad did this summer, this one a more traditional radio-studio setup for Maroon 5’s “What Lovers Do.”

Check out more Rihanna covers here and more Kate Bush covers here.
