The cheesily uplifting and very effective “Not Giving In” by Rudimental featuring John Newman and Alex Clare was not the first time I’d heard of John Newman. The first time I’d ever heard of him was via a Nina Nesbitt cover of his “Love Me Again.”
And that cover was killer. I couldn’t stop listening to it. The original is good, but it doesn’t quite move me the same. On the other hand, I don’t like even one of Nina Nesbitt’s own songs. It’s very odd. She does great covers, but her own music sounds like a different artist.
Either way, she made this song her very own, which is why it’s today’s Music Monday.
