Listen: Sampha’s cover of Drake’s Controlla in Radio 1’s Live Lounge


The singer performed a different take on the club hit

In a BBC Radio 1 Live Lounge session today (28 March), hosted by Clara Amfo, Sampha performed the Process track (No One Knows Me) Like the Piano.

The emotive singer then proceeded to perform a piano-based cover of Drake‘s hit Controlla.

At one point, Amfo asked Sampha whether he has enough material with Drake to fill an album, to which the shy-sounding artist replied, “Maybe”.

The two have recently collaborated on the track 4422, on Drake’s playlist project More Life.

You can listen to the session here, where Sampha’s Live Lounge session starts at around the two hour mark. The cover begins at approximately 2 hours 14 minutes.
