Thursday’s (Jan. 7) take found Kelly and her band tackling the laid back 2103 track from Drizzy’s Nothing Was the Same album and somehow making it feel like even more sublimely sensual.
In Clarkson’s hands, the song was transformed into an R&B power jam, with Clarkson revving up her virtual crowd into a frenzy with another stirring reworking of a modern classic.
The Drake cover dropped a day after Kelly took on Selena Gomez‘s “Rare,” adding to her recent hot streak of Kellyoke segments since the holiday break, which also includes Coldplay‘s (“Princess of China”), Chicago‘s (“Hard to Say I’m Sorry”) and Madonna‘s (“Borderline”) in the first week of 2021.
It’s been a fun week for Kelly, who also turned it on on Monday when she broke into song mid-interview with The Masked Dancer‘s Craig Robinson, who busted out a keyboard during their distanced interview for an impromptu jam about the crucial, fries-centric difference between a drive-through and a drive-in.
