Adele Covers Cheryl Cole’s “Promise This” For BBC Radio 1 Live Lounge
As Adele’s sophomore album 21 continues to obliterate the competition in the UK, the “Rolling In The Deep” songstress is firmly marching down the promo trail to ensure a victorious chart outcome in her home country once the end of the week rolls around. Today she hit up BBC Radio 1’s Live Lounge, where, among other tunes, she performed a somber cover of fellow Brit pop star Cheryl Cole’s 2010 hit “Promise This.” Listen below.
“I actually love her. She’s my favorite person ever,” Adele said about Cheryl before launching into the cover. “Some of the lyrics in this song remind me of the message in ‘Rolling In The Deep,’ so I loved it as soon as I heard it.”

Hmmm. Can we hear the former again?
The 22-year-old Grammy-winner isn’t the only one to be inspired by Cheryl Cole’s catalog when coming up with a cover for Live Lounge. Last month Vampire Weekend served up their rendition of the Girls Aloud diva’s 2009 single “Fight For This Love.”
Adele’s 21 will be released in the U.S. on February 22.
