There are exactly 30 seconds of greatness in Kanye West's "Bound 2," and UK songstress Laura Welsh has captured them perfectly. I am serious when I say that the rest of the original song is pretty terrible, but I like to think that this cover is a nice bit of insight into what could've been a pretty darn soulful masterpiece.
Laura rounds off this vocally stunning performance with her own added verses on top of her bone-chilling rendition of Charlie Wilson's chorus. As I put this version on repeat, I can feel the original being slowly erased from my memory -- God bless Laura.
Say goodbye to "Bound 2" and hello to "Bound."
