T.I. & Tiny’s Heiress Harris Covers Rihanna’s ‘Lift Me Up’
Heiress Harris seems to be next up in a family of award-winning musicians! Days before Rihanna is set to make a musical comeback at the Super Bowl, Heiress released a cover of the star’s 2022 song Lift Me Up.
If you didn’t know, the six-year-old is the daughter of three-time Grammy-winner T.I. and Tiny, a singer-songwriter in the multi-platinum group Xscape.
The video, featuring singing scenes of Heiress, was initially posted to her verified Instagram account. However, as of Friday, her cover is no longer available on the page. The Shade Room reposted Heiress’s cover on its Instagram on Thursday. Since then, the clip has collected more than 450,000 likes and over 22,000 comments.
In the video, Heiress walks along a beach–similar to Rihanna’s official video for the Wakanda Forever track. In a high pitch, the six-year-old belts the song’s second verse: “Drowning in an endless sea/ Take some time and stay with me.”
It’s unclear when the cover video was shot. However, in the excerpt TSR shared, Heiress appears to have the same hairstyle posted to her IG account on January 20. TMZ reports that the cover was shot by director J from No Degree Productions, with Tiny assisting in its co-production.
Harris has been on a vocal journey since her early toddler days. Her parents have often shared clips of their youngest daughter in coaching sessions with singer Annie Tracy and solo singing.
On December 6, Tracy shared a video of Harris singing a song she says the child learned in two days–hard riffs and all.
