Since its release in September of last year, Rihanna and Calvin Harris‘ smash hit “We Found Love” has been extensively covered by everyone from your next door neighbor to YouTube sensation Boyce Avenue. There’s no denying that the song can make just about anybody want to dance, but the great thing about covers of a song like this is that they can make you want to do other things.

In the case of Sri-Lanka singer Anishka’s delicate and melancholic cover, it might make you want to cry. Her soft voice, combined with the beautiful and sentimental images displayed throughout the video prove that the song can be as effective as a ballad as it is as a club hit. Check out Anishka’s impressive cover and music video below.
