Covers LISTEN: SAM SMITH & DISCLOSURE – “HOTLINE BLING” (DRAKE COVER) Posted by Staff at Trendio • September 17, 2015

Well here’s something we all thought we would never thought of putting together… Sam Smith & Drake.

Looking in retrospect this collab should’ve happened a long time ago because Sam & Drake aren’t that different. They’re both known for making songs that get you all in your feelings about loves gone wrong and they both have won Grammys for those exact projects.

And now we finally get to hear what it would be like to have Sam & Drake on a track together.

While on a visit on BBC’s Live Lounge, Sam & his buddies from Disclosure performed a live cover of Drakes latest smash, “Hotline Bling.” Now before you go and write it off because you assume it’s bad & extra sappy with an orchestra…. trust us it’s not. It’s actually really good.  Thanks to the help of the Disclosure boys, they spun this song around and gave it a new twist. And just like every other collab between Disclosure & Mr. Smith, it was kind of amazing.

Take a listen to the British rendition of Hotline Bling, originally performed by Canadian superstar Drake now being covered by Sam Smith and Disclosure.
