Cover Wars: Like I’m Gonna Lose You

“Like I’m Gonna Lose You” is from Meghan Trainor’s debut album, Title. The song features John Legend and was released in June 2015. “Like I’m Gonna Lose You” is the fourth single from Title and conveys the message that one should not take time with loved ones for granted.

“Like I’m Gonna Lose You” topped the Australian charts for 4 consecutive weeks and also reached number 1 in New Zealand. The song peaked at number 9 on the US Billboard Hot 100 Chart, making it Trainor’s third song to reach the top-10.

The song’s music video was released in July of 2015 and features Meghan and John singing amid candlelight as it rains outside. Meghan premiered the video in Times Square in New York City. Meghan sang the song at select dates on her tour with either Matt Prince or George Sheppard of Sheppard, however, the song is sung best when sung with John Legend. The two of them performed “Like I’m Gonna Lose You” together at the 2015 Billboard Music Awards and it was the third most tagged performance on Shazam of the entire award show.

I love the message this song conveys. Plus the power vocals of Meghan Trainor mixed with the smooth voice of John Legend are a match made in Heaven. I find myself crying when I hear it. I’m absolutely obsessed with this song and have no problem belting it at full voice in the shower. So, to honor (my tone-deaf shower) love for this song, here are my Top 4 favorite covers of “Like I’m Gonna Lose You” by Meghan Trainor, featuring John Legend.
