Cover vs. Original #3

Hey guys,
it's week three of the "Cover vs. Original" series and I'm still overexcited about this.

Last week's result:
(Song: "I Will Wait")
The winner is: Little Mix
Again the cover version won. I find this quite interesting.

Today's little competition:

Song: "We Found Love"
Originally performed by: Rihanna ft. Calvin Harris
Covered by: Ed Sheeran

Rihanna's show is massive, tons of dancers, outfits that couldn't be more outgoing. That's also how her song could be described - massive and outgoing. 
There are a lot of bass and electronic sounds going on.

Ed Sheeran - a synonym for talent in making songs his own. It seems like there isn't a genre Ed hasn't covered yet. And the thing about him is, he only needs his guitar (and his loop station). 
Concentrated on vocals and guitar this version is very calmed down.

Who do you think did the better job? Is your favourite Rihanna's up beat version or Ed's laid back cover?
