Ciara Covers The Rolling Stones Classic 'Paint It Black'
The R&B star brings her strong vocals to a stirring rendition that has a touch of Evanescence's "Bring Me to Life" about it. Speaking with Rolling Stone, Ciara explained how she'd never thought to cover the classic song. "No, to be honest with you, it was actually a surprise for me when I got the call from Universal Publishing and Lionsgate," she said.
"When they asked me to do this, I was like, 'Absolutely. This would be an honor.' I had never thought to cover this song. It was never on my radar to cover it, but when the opportunity came along, I was very thrilled, because I love what the producer Adrianne Gonzales did."
"The direction that she went in was actually a sound I've always wanted to play with, and it just didn't get any better than being able to cover a Rolling Stones song. I feel like it pushes the edge and the limit for me, in reference to what people probably expect from me. So this was so many cool things in one. It was a huge honor, and then creatively I just got to really have some fun that I don't usually do in my music." Read more and check out the cover here.
