Priyanka Chopra has announced her third single, ‘I Can’t Make You Love Me’, an uptempo cover of the 1991 classic by Bonnie Raitt.
The Bollywood star is continuing her music success after releasing In My City and Exotic. Talking to BollywoodLife, Chopra said: is one of the people why I became a singer.
“My cover is really different because the original is a ballad and we have used dance music for my version of the song.”
After the riveting success of ‘In My City’ featuring Will.I.Am and “Exotic” featuring Pitbull, Priyanka has nailed it with her third song “I Can’t Make You Love Me”. It is a unique cover of the Bonnie Raitt’s 1991 song that made it to Rolling Stone Magazine’s 500 Greatest Songs of All Time.
“My cover of ‘I can’t make you love me’ is really different because the original is a ballad and we have used dance music for my version of the song. Watch out for the video,” Priyanka, who launched the new track Tuesday, said in a statement.
The Priyanka’s version is quite different because the original is a ballad and the new version is more upbeat. The singer filmed the music video early this month and it was directed by Jeff Nicholas and Jonathan Craven. It’s expected that the single is available for sale on iTunes in March.
This upbeat version was previously recorded as a demo by American singer-songwriter and hitmaker Ester Dean, known for her work with Barbadian pop star Rihanna.
