If you're a fan of hip hop and electro-dance, you'll likely be a fan of Disclosure and Sam Smith's cover of Drake's "Hotline Bling," which they performed during their stop at BBC Radio 1 's Live Lounge with Clara Amfo.
Before they went into the unexpected cover, Guy of the duo gushed about two of his favorite hip hop heavyweights, saying, "Drake and Kendrick are just absolutely killing it at the moment. They’re definitely our faves of the moment in that world, and it made sense to choose that song."
For their version, Disclosure stripped the tune of any hip hop influences and replaced the hard-hitting production with a mellow dance beat and a steady bassline. Spacey sound effects fill the air atop Sam's (almost emotional) vocals, which makes for an interesting listen since "Hotline Bling" is about, well, a booty call. Either way, we approve.
