I was looking back at the archives and it’s been almost two months since a take cover has been posted. Thank god Zola Jesus has come to end that tribute song drought. And with a Rihanna song? It must be Christmas.
So, you know what that means, right? Start tweeting Zola Jesus immediately, demanding she cover Mariah Carey, Tiffani, and TLC right away. And don’t even try to lie and tell me that wouldn’t be amazing.
For those of you non-pop fans, don’t worry – Zola Jesus’ powerful goth-tinged voice comes through, so you won’t have to feel guilty about listening to a Rihanna track:
Lyric Coming Soon to a Tween’s Facebook Status Near You: “You’re a shooting star I see / A vision of ecstasy / When you hold me, I’m alive / We’re like diamonds in the sky”
