The Canadian singer takes on Drake's "Hotline Bling."

Disclosure and Sam Smith stopped by BBC Radio 1’s Live Lounge and performed an in-studio cover of Drake‘s quiet smash “Hotline Bling.” It’s the second time the Drizzy ballad was covered in the Live Lounge — Alessia Cara took it on in August — but for this new rendition, the “Omen” and “Latch” collaborators strayed further from the original. Brothers Guy and Howard Lawrence gave the song a gentle house pulse and club sheen, and Smith’s vocals add a soulful dimension that Drake doesn’t have.

Watch the cover below.

Disclosure’s sophomore album Caracal is out September 25.
