The dictionary definition of a perfect cover.

Perfect human being and golden voiced angel, Kelly Clarkson, performed a song that none of us saw coming. The mother of one, who is currently promoting her album Piece By Piece, stopped by the BBC Radio 1 Live Lounge for an exclusive performance of "BBHMM". "BBHMM" is, of course, Rihanna's turn up jam from her upcoming album. 

The American Idol winner isn't necessarily known for her r&b chops but her rendition sounds like a song we want a studio/stadium/acoustic/everything version of. 

Clarkson skilfully executes the high charged r&B tune, switching out some choice words for some PG ones as she goes along. Backed by two background singers, Clarkson shines in a way that almost makes us wish this were her song to begin with.
