Jessie J delivers an impassioned performance of Rihanna‘s ‘We Found Love’ in a new video from her studio session for the Radio 1 Live Lounge series.

The song starts off as an acoustic ballad, with the BRIT Award nominee belting out the opening verse atop an acoustic guitar melody. After the chorus, the song picks up the pace just like RiRi’s chart-topping single, though Jessie’s instruments, aside from those keyboards, are acoustic.

As her ‘We Found Love’ cover progresses, it settles back into a mid-tempo groove, with the singer presenting new vocal treatments for the familiar hook, including a fierce “we found la-la-la-la-la-love.” The arrangement is very different from Coldplay’s cover of ‘We Found Love’ for BBC Radio a few months back, but it’s a perfect fit for Jessie’s voice.

Jessie J also played her latest hit, ‘Domino,’ on the show. The PopCrush Best New Artist of 2011 has already begun recording her second album and has been added as a coach/mentor for the second season of ‘The Voice‘ U.K.
