In celebration of her 25th birthday, La’Porsha Renae has released a modern cover version of Tina Turner’s Grammy-winning single “What’s Love Got to Do With It.”
With songwriting and production from Alvin Garrett and Gerald Langford, Renae remakes Turner’s 1984 hit single and spins it to work for her beautifully bold cadence.
Renae plans to work “What’s Love Got to Do With It” as her new single. The cover serves as the first offering since the release of the title track from her inspiring debut Already All Ready in 2017.
“I want them to take away a glimpse of who I am — not just that, but I want them to go on the journey with me,” Renae shared with Rated R&B about her debut album. “I want them to feel what I felt in each song. At the end of the day, if I can’t portray that emotion to them and make them feel something, then I don’t feel like I’ve done my job as an artist. I definitely want people to be inspired and aspire to be the greatest version of themselves. I hope they get all of that or some of that from the album (laughs).”
Take a listen to Renae’s cover and let us know if she did Ms. Turner justice.
