Christine and the Queens put on an epic performance of Rihanna’s “Kiss It Better” as she stopped by BBC’s Live Lounge Wednesday.
The French musician, real name Heloise Letissier, put her own spin on the Anti track, mixing it in with Kate Bush’s 1978 smash hit “Wuthering Heights”.
After the incredible rendition, Letissier said of the song: “It’s so much about longing and being haunted by someone… The two songs just answer themselves beautifully.”
She added, “When I think of Rihanna I think of empowerment. Anti is all about being strong when you unfold, which is quite compelling, I think. The strength never stops, it’s quite a feminist statement.”
Give it a listen here (skip to the 2 hour 10 minute mark to hear the cover).
Christine and the Queens’ cover comes after ET Canada caught up with the singer as she prepared to tour with her latest album Chris.
