The cover is expected to be included on the R&B singer’s forthcoming album, Rated Love. “R&B songstress Keke Wyatt celebrates love every day and what better way to do that, than to proclaim it!” read the description for the video uploaded on YouTube. Wyatt also covered Whitney Houston’s “I Will Always Love You” — which Bey also covered this week — and Rose Royce’s “I’m Going Down” while bringing attention to her 16-track LP that’s slated to drop on April 22.
Wyatt is known for her duets with Avant such as “My First Love” and “You & I.” She also lent her voice to the Blackalicious hit, “It’s Going Down.” But while she may be talented, the cover was a miss for tweeters.
“I love KeKe Wyatt but her Beyonce cover of ‘Love on top’ was not good at all! Straining & yelling and voice not strong on high notes,” read a tweet from a seemingly fair judge. “‘Love on top’ is definitely Beyonce’s song, Keke wyatt’s cover was cute but lacked something !” tweeted another unimpressed listener.
Although we’re not sure if it’s better than Queen Bey’s version, we can certainly enjoy Wyatt’s attempt to put her own spin on the track. Check it out above and let us know what you think about it in the comments below.
It's 2016 and the girls are still saying that Keke Wyatt and Hennifer Hudson sing better than Beyoncé? pic.twitter.com/8B0U7L6plF

Keke Wyatt covered love on top. Keke sings but nobody can do that song like Bey did it!
