Unlike all the other “Wrecking Ball” covers out there, this one by James Arthur does not feature the following:
b) a wrecking ball
c) someone licking a sledge hammer
So no, he’s not making fun of our beloved Miley but even we’ll admit those spoofs were pretty funny.
What James Arthur does do, though, is sing his heart out so beautifully that this should be the only “Wrecking Ball” cover you listen to. This should also be the song you play to your non-Miley-Cyrus-believing friends that yes, this song has depth and can sound really good.
It’s not that we don’t love Miley’s version (we love it so much!), we just think some people can’t get past her hype to see her talent. James Arthur’s cover of the song may just be the stripped down version her fans needed to convince the world that Miley is on her way up and no one can stop her.
So yes, he does Miley a great justice and we’ll be playing this alongside Miley’s version all day long.
