*I can’t believe I didn’t recognize Rihanna’s voice at first smh… Either way, she sounds amazing on this track. Never really found myself listening to Calvin Harris, but his music is great!* I just covered their song and would really appreciate who can take a second to give my cover a chance. I think you’ll be pleasantly surprised by what you’ll see and hear.
jae f. Yup. She originally recorded it with Calvin before they decided their relationship would distract from the song. When he switched to Rihanna, he kept a small bit of the backing vocals as Taylor’s. You can look it up to find her isolated parts. It’s actually one of the things that made Taylor stans suspicious that she was the ghostwriter, Nils Sjoberg (this turned out to be true). Since, they were like “I’ve been listening to Taylor for 10 years, and I can recognize her voice”. They’re the reason Taylor revealed that she wrote the song, since the stans theory was getting traction.
Very different artists. Rihanna has a more laid back natural art where as Beyonce is much more crafted, practiced and therefore masterful. It’s like comparing Da Vinci with Van Gogh. Very different styles and type of artist.
