Denisha Dalton’s Cover of Zayn’s “Pillowtalk” on The Voice


There is something very special about Zayn Malik’s vocals in “Pillowtalk”. As the first single from his solo album My ghost In 2016 it was an emotional glimpse into the reach as a solo artist; paired with the music video with Gigi Hadid – phew, it was beautiful! Fast forward a few albums and a few years later and we’re reminded of why we love the song so much. On March 22nd, Denisha Dalton put her own slowed spin on the hit at blind auditions The voiceand it was more than impressive.

Kelly Clarkson tried to sell the 22-year-old singer through her Texas connection. Blake Shelton praised her talent and the “break” she took with her voice as “priceless”. But John Legend came in smoothly with a reaction speaking to Dalton. “What you did made you feel so authentic. Your smile is contagious. Your style is contagious,” he said, finally leading her to her decision. Dalton’s performance was so convincing that it deserves all the praise. Check out her cover of Pillowtalk above.
