    Gotta give this guy credit for a fun video. He definitely has range. Vocally, Rihanna`s version contrasts the emotion of the verses with the coldness of the hook. This guy opted for a mechanical feel throughout which gives it a somewhat steam-punk edge. Well done.

    Never heard that song before...looked up the Rihanna`s and I agree. Better than her version. A little bizarre but it works.

    I never heard the original, so I had to go to YT to look it up. She`s not very good at singing, is she? The song`s weak too. It`s half a chorus looped and arranged without talent.

    At least this guy`s got a more interesting voice with greater range, the arrangement holds the attention and distracts from the unimaginative and repetitive lyrics.

    BTW, is there any meaning at all behind this song?

    I really really liked it when he moved into his upper register. Kinda gives me a Bowie feel. Like it <3
