Drake’s “Hotline Bling,” by design, is more of a slow jam than a house banger. (See: Kehlani and Charlie Puth’s gorgeous duet.) But Disclosure will be Disclosure, and so they brought in Adele 2.0 for the job on BBC Radio 1’s Live Lounge. Sam Smith and the boys may not be as ambitious as FKA Twigs, but, hey, it sill works. Stream it at 8:55.
