Dua Lipa’s cover of “I’d Rather Go Blind” is Fiercely Beautiful.

If you live under a rock (no offense) and have never heard Etta James’s song “I’d Rather Go Blind,” I’d highly recommend going and listening to that first.

It’s a classic.

And, actually, it was written by Ellington Jordan and co-credited to Etta James and Billy Foster.

But it was first recorded by Etta James in 1967—and she turned the song into a legend.

Similarly, if you’ve never heard of Dua Lipa (again, rock?), now’s a good opportunity to acquaint yourself.

She’s made quite a name for herself in recent years, with her stunning, powerful, soulful vocals.

Her rendition of “I’d Rather Go Blind” is intimate and breathtaking and is well worth a listen (or five, or twenty, or five hundred).
