Staten Island, NY native Ingrid Michaelson is known for her sweet voice. Rihanna, on the other hand, is known for her dance friendly beats (and crazy tweets). They both come together in Michaelson’s reinterpretation of the pop star’s “We Found Love.”

With Michaelson’s side project ARMY of 3, she takes pop songs and strips them down to make them all her own. For her reimagining of “We Found Love,” the singer/songwriter goes completely a capella, using only her voice and a few handclaps to mimic the synths and beats of RiRi’s club banger.

Before this, Michaelson tried her hand at Gotye’s “Somebody I Used To Know” showing off her musical skills by playing every instrument featured on the track from the guitar to the drums to the xylophone all herself.

Michaelson’s fifth studio album, Human Again, is out now and she’s taking it on the road. Check out her upcoming tour dates below.
