Like all his songs, Post Malone’s “Better Now” has taken over speakers across the world. So it was only a matter of time before another pop star at the top of their game put out their own take on the tune. Enter Troye Sivan, a fresh-faced Australian-South African who’s been making waves for a minute now.
While Posty’s original had a downbeat, hip hop sound, Sivan’s cover goes for a mellower, acoustic vibe. Released as a Spotify Single, the cover has all of the heartache and emotion that made “Better Now” such a smash, while still retaining the pop prince’s signature dreamy vocals.
Even if the original version didn’t do it for you, Sivan’s rendition is worth a listen. Which is always the sign of a good cover. Check it out here:
