Demi Lovato brings the heat to Aretha Franklin’s “Ain’t No Way.”
When Demi Lovato stopped by the Spotify studios in New York recently, she recorded a treasure chest of gems. The pop star gifted us with a syrupy sweet cover of “I’ll Be Home For Christmas” and a stripped rendition of her album title track, “Tell Me You Love Me,” and for good measure Demi covered Aretha Franklin’s tender ballad “Ain’t No Way.”
No one can surpass the original, even Whitney Houston and Christina Aguilera (who’ve tried), but Demi holds her own. Lovatics know Demi can sing the HELL out of a song, but I think the general public has some catching up to do, and that’s a real shame. Hopefully she can inspire more to tune in with covers like this.
This is also a great opportunity to re-watch Xtina’s live-performance of it at the 2011 Grammys.
