American Idol Winner Nick Fradiani Covers ‘Too Good’ By Drake and Rihanna (VIDEO)

American Idol winner Nick Fradiani is promoting his new album, Hurricane. And he’s getting the word out by covering “Too Good” by Drake and Rihanna, which is one of the most popular tracks on the radio today (seriously, I heard it four times this afternoon alone).

Nick has a really distinctive voice on this, and he think he does a great job of making this his own. It seriously sounds like a completely different song, in the best possible way. I like both songs, but I think I prefer this version, even acknowledging that they were basically two completely different songs except for the lyrics. I dig this though. Hell, I’d actually be down for an entire album of popular covers from Nick. Granted, I know that’s not happening, so for now, I’ll just stick with Hurricane, which is way better than a lot of media outlets are giving it credit for being (“Get You Home” is totally my jam, at the moment).
