Music truly knows no boundaries for our Malaysian young singing talents and I’m proud to say that their versions are as close to the beautiful masterpieces sung and composed previously by legends in the industry.
Some songs are so beautiful, iconic, and impenetrable that the thought of them being covered by someone else is sacrilege. The finest cover songs don’t just rebrand something familiar; they entirely rework the source material, disassembling and reassembling the song’s elements into something interesting while maintaining the essence of what made it great.
We’re willing to bet a great deal of you didn’t even know this was a cover tune. These lively vocals are great for embracing the current weather as they are lighthearted and breezy.
Dinesh Rajendran – dinuuuuu._
Dinesh’s cover from the film Sachein has instantly lifted all worries and replaces them with wonderful thoughts. This appealing tune is upbeat and joyful, and it will have you fantasising of butterflies and rainbows.
Having a bad day?
Then Dinesh’s vocals will brighten your somber mood.
Niveisan Subramaniam – niveisann
What better time to play this beautiful rendition when the weather is pleasant?
Niveisan’s cover on the famous song aptly titled Yedhedho Ennangal from the film Pattiyal has taken listeners back to blissful, more simpler times. Especially on the heart-tugging lyrics by PA. Vijay, this song has always been close to our hearts to date.
Tharmann – _gstharmann_
Covered by countless artists, this spellbinding rendition by Tharmann will instantly take you to a specific place or moment in time.
If it doesn’t make you feel happy, check your pulse guys!
Gayathiry – gayathiry_official
A beautiful authentic cover of Our Killi Urugudhu by Gayathiry is a classic never to be forgotten. This melancholy cover takes on a whole different tone than the original track.
Piraveen Aaron – _piraveennn_
Known for his deep, rich bass-baritone voice, Piraveen puts the acoustic version in sharp contrast with a spare, and trust me it’s just way too beautiful. There’s something timeless about this young teen’s voice, fraught with emotion and twisted by the years.
This talented vocalist makes us replay the song like no other!
Sia Saara – sia.saara
My jaw completely dropped after listening to this talented girl’s voice. This haunting vocals of Saara has grabbed the attention of social media viewers lately. Her slow tempo for this cover song is completely badass.

Vidhya Mohan – _vidhyamohan_
Perhaps one of the grooving cover song, Vidhya’s take on Kannaane Kanne from the film Viswasam, adds an emotional depth that listeners wouldn’t understand by just hearing the audio, so do yourself a favour and watch it.
Gracintha Rubini James – gracintha_96
Gracintha has effortlessly belted out what’s going on in her in this heart piercing cover. Its addictive to the core.
Jaya Bharkavee – singer_jaya_bharkavee
It’s hard to believe that Jaya’s take on the Kanna Veesi song was a cover version, and in my opinion she did justice to it. Listen it for yourself and be the judge!
Sharven Rao – sharven_ven
Sharven made his own take on the beautiful track aptly titled Kadhaipoma from the film Oh My Kadavule and will certainly make your day even more graceful. Trust me guys, this talented voice will instantly hook you like no other.
