Our friends over at Capital FM are literally loving Calvin Harris and Rihanna’s newest hit ‘This Is What You Came For’. They’re loving it SO much that they’ve gathered a bunch of the best YouTube covers of the single and featured them all in one video over on the Capital FM website. The medley features the likes of Alexa Goddard and Samantha Harvey and we weren’t surprised to see the newest edition of the British YouTuber squad, Conor Maynard, make the cut. Here at Unicorns HQ we don’t often talk about the latest in chart music but when we heard about Maynard’s recent appearance, we knew we had to share it with you.
You may recognise Conor from his rise to fame in 2012 with his debut single ‘Can’t Say No‘, but since then Maynard has decided to take his talents to YouTube instead as he uploads regular music covers for his almost two million subscribers. As well as recording his own covers, we often see him and his fellow YouTuber brother, Jack Maynard, popping up in the likes of #Jaspar’s vlogs and main channel videos and their subscribers seem to love them. So far we have spotted Conor in Joe’s ‘Game of Phones’ challenge and in Caspar’s newest video ‘Most Embarrassing Video Ever’.
The original cover of the song on Conor’s channel actually features Samantha Harvey who was also seen in Capital’s tribute to YouTube covers. The singer posts her own version of chart songs, such as Adele’s ‘Hello‘ and Justin Bieber’s ‘Sorry’, to her YouTube channel and she currently has just over 80,000 subscribers. However, it’s not just the duo’s Calvin Harris cover that we love, we’ve also picked three more of our favourite Conor covers for you to enjoy. You’re welcome.
Lukas Graham – 7 Years
Adele – Hello
And finally… Shawn Mendes – Stitches
