Disclosure and Sam Smith Cover Drake's 'Hotline Bling'

(Radio.com) BBC's Radio 1 Lounge has been crushing it lately when it comes to covers. In addition to asking guests to perform stripped down versions of their own music, the show also asks guests to perform a cover. And their guests are rising to the occasion. Between Demi covering Hozier and now Disclosure and Sam Smith covering Drake, fun things are happening across the pond.

According to Rolling Stone, electronic-sibling duo Disclosure appeared with Sam Smith on the program, and when it came down to what they would cover, the three didn't disappoint. They chose Drake's latest hit, "Hotline Bling."

It's not their first time working together. Disclosure featured Sam Smith on their single, Latch," and more recent single, "Omen." So of course they brought him round when it came time to perform on the radio program.

"Drake and Kendrick [Lamar] are just absolutely killing it at the moment," said Disclosure's Guy Lawrence. "They're like mine and [brother] Howard's faves at the moment in that world, and it made sense to choose this song." Watch it here.
