You’d be hard-pressed to find a sexier record in 2015 than contemporary/alternative R&B artist Miguel’s “Coffee.” “Coffee” balances both the passion of sex and the passion of romance. Undoubtedly, the single version is the classiest, though Miguel’s honesty in the explicit version via the f-bomb is definitely implied in the single version as well. Regardless, yours truly thought it would be fun to find others covering “Coffee,” a brilliant song that deserves wider recognition than it has received as of yet. So, here are seven fine covers that will definitely whet your palette – or something like that!

If you didn’t already know, this dude can flat out sing. He doesn’t just ‘sing,’ he ‘sangs.’ He tackles Miguel’s “Coffee” like a champ, delivering it with the upmost romantic and sexy swagger. Oh and he says it best himself – “Miguel is a bit of a boss.” True that!

2) r0bbiejayy (Robbie Jay)

Although UK singer/songwriter Robbie Jay has a sweet ‘boyishness’ about his pipes, he has the right bite to deliver an enjoyable, compelling cover of Miguel’s sexy single. His tone is nothing short of exceptional.

3) Justin Burke
