It’s not really much of a surprise to hear someone covering a song they’ve taken interest to, even among celebrity singers. And Kanye West’s emotional song ‘Only One’ is no exception, as Nick Jonas posts his version of the song over at SoundCloud!

Nick Jonas recently posted his version of Kanye West’s ‘Only One’ over at his SoundCloud page. He also shared a link of it in a tweet to West and mentioned of how much he loved the song that he just had to cover it. Not that we blame him for it. Take a good dose of emotional lyrics inspired by West’s late mother, add in West’s voice and throw in Paul McCartney’s instrumentals and background vocals…What you get in return is one of the sweetest songs any mother would be proud of.

Though West has not yet commented on Jonas’ rendition of the song, many have commented and praised the cover over at Twitter. Some even went on to say that Jonas’ version of ‘Only One’ is better than that of West’s version.

With ‘Only One’ being quite a hit, it shouldn’t be much of a surprise that a lot of people would want to cover it. Aside from Jonas, Drake had also covered it during his recent comeback performance held in New York. It was also covered by Emily West a la Roy Orbison, wherein she was accompanied by the band Postmodern Jukebox. Their rendition was posted in YouTube, as per Postmodern Jukebox’s other songs.

Aside from working on his music lately, Jonas is also set to co-star in Ryan Murphy’s ‘Scream Queens’ series along with Ariana Grande and Lea Michele. He will also be hosting the 2015 Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards this coming March.
