Chloe and Halle’s Cover of “Pretty Hurts” Is Everything

Beyonce’s “Pretty Hurts” not only has a great message about body image, but it’s also beautiful to listen to. Two young women named Chloe and Halle have created a cover that is (dare I say) even prettier than the original. This may be because I’m a sucker for stripped down, acoustic covers of pop songs, but either way, it’s an incredible cover that over 7 million people have watched (I probably count for like 500,000 of those views, to be quite honest). Anyway, go and watch it because you absolutely will not be sorry you did. Scouts honor.
