Muhsinah Covers Rico Love With ‘Somebody Else’ Remake

Muhsinah Somebody Else cover

Washington, DC doll Muhsinah has a beautiful love song for you to hear as you prepare to shower your significant other for Valentine’s Day this weekend. With her first release since last year’s M EP, the GRAMMY-nominated talent is offering her own stripped-down rendition of Rico Love’s “Somebody Else.” Stripping back the heavy beat, background noise and slowing down the ballad even more, Muhsinah takes her time to lift this song and its heartfelt message to another level. Even her harmonies on the chorus’ chant are more powerful than in Rico’s original version.

Now this isn’t a happily ever after kind of love song. This song tells a story of heartbreak and lovers holding on to each other’s hearts while moving on to loving somebody else. “And I know we can’t turn back time / I know we can’t right these wrongs,” Muhsinah sings, pacing herself as she launches into this intense record. Beyond her effortless vocal delivery, she has rebuilt this track from scratch and reminded us that her production skill is not to be slept on. This lovely rendition could and should easily slide its way into an episode of a hit television series like ABC’s Scandal or BET’s Being Mary Jane. But for now we’ll settle for making it the soundtrack to our own lives and you should as well.
