Miguel Covered Rihanna’s ‘Kiss It Better’ But Forgot The Lyrics

During his SXSW ¬†performance at the Spotify House on Tuesday the ever-beautiful Miguel decided he’d do a crowd-pleaser and cover Rihanna’s “Kiss It Better.” The only problem was he didn’t actually know the lyrics. Certainly not one to let a crowd down, Miguel did what any determined millennial would do and read the lyrics from his smartphone while completing the cover.

Did he just decide on a whim to break out into a heartfelt Rihanna tribute, only to immediately realize he’d need his phone? Or had he planned this cover, counting on the magic of the moment sweeping him up into lyrical accuracy? Either way, it bespeaks of the chillness of his fans that they rolled with it.

Luckily for his overall track record, Miguel knew all the words when he recently teamed up with Rihanna to cover the Temptation’s “My Girl” at an LA party.
