John Legend – Rolling in the Deep (Adele Cover)


“Rolling in the Deep” continues to just keep giving, whether Jamie XX or Villa or now via John Legend. The song’s melody is so strong, so soulful, it’s able to translate itself to just about any genre, arrangement, or instrumentation. Here, our man John Legend takes a song that already had strong blues and gospel influence and propells it straight into spirituals territory. Using a purely a cappella arrangement; a chorus of joyful voices frame the song’s verses and uplift it’s choruses making for a sound that altogether is very powerful. Witness.
