Don’t Bother Listening to Jessie Ware Cover Rihanna’s ‘Diamonds’

What if there was a cover of Rihanna’s immaculate paean to celestial love (one of our favorite songs of the year) that sounded like The xx sleep-walking through band practice with Jessie Ware singing? Sounds good, right? It’s not, but here you go anyway. Eat your medicine, internet.

This version from Zola Jesus fairs slightly better (h/t COS), but for our internet money, this is still the definitive take.
