The cover, which was uploaded to BTS’ official YouTube page, stays true to the original version of the song. Over a simple piano melody, Jungkook’s tenor vocals hit Styles’ notes with ease, allowing the unique quality of his voice to take center stage.
At the bridge — when Styles sings “I get the feeling that you’ll never need me again” — Jungkook similarly impresses with his seemingly effortless, drawn-out belting of the lyrics.
The K-pop artist appears to be well-versed in covering music. In the past, he’s released his own renditions of Lauv’s “Never Not” and Selena Gomez and Charlie Puth’s “We Don’t Talk Anymore” featuring fellow group member Jimin.
