I’m linking this cover of Labrinth’s Jealous because it’s something I’ve been rewatching over and over again these days. Josh Daniel auditions for The X Factor UK 2015 and he sings his own rendition of Labrinth’s Jealous. He dedicates the song to his best friend who had recently passed away. The emotion he sings the cover with is something I’d define as love. One part of the lyrics states, “I wished you the best of / All this world could give,” and I believe sometimes love is exactly that. It’s wishing the best for someone no matter where you both are in your life. In this case, Josh Daniel is wishing the best for his best friend in heaven and he’s jealous that his best friend is living happily in heaven without him.
