Sampha covers Drake’s Controlla

During his visit to BBC 1, Sampha did a cover of Drake’s “Controlla,” from his “Views” album.

I’ve seen some great covers on BBC 1, but this one fell flat for me. While I stand behind Sampha having a great voice, a wasn’t huge fan of the arrangement of the song. It was unrecognizable and the lyrics didn’t seem to fit the arrangement at all.

What do you think? Check out Sampha cover and the original below.
