John Legend’s Gripping A Capella ”Rolling in the Deep” Cover Is Basically Flawless

The Voice Coach did a special arrangement of the 2010s hit.

Back in 2011, The Voice Coach John Legend did a riveting cover of one of Adele’s biggest hit, ”Rolling in the Deep,” shortly after its original release.

Watch The Voice Mondays and Tuesdays at 8/7c on NBC and next day on Peacock.

During his stripped-back version, he sang acapella amongst soulful background singers, his voice soaring at the chorus.

 

What to know about ”Rolling in the Deep” by Adele

Released in 2011 off of her second album 21, ”Rolling in the Deep” is one of Adele’s most well-known songs to date. It reached the number one position on the US Billboard Hot 100 charts, and won three Grammy Awards for Record of the Year, Song of the Year, and Best Short Form Music Video.

In 2019, Billboard described ”Rolling in the Deep” as a ”song that defined the decade.”

”Like the ’60s soul classics it’s styled after, “Rolling In the Deep” is a musical master course in relentlessly building to a thunderous catharsis,” the outlet wrote of the track.

”Rolling in the Deep” by Adele lyrics

There’s a fire starting in my heart
Reaching a fever pitch, it’s bringing me out the dark
Finally I can see you crystal clear
Go ahead and sell me out and I’ll lay your ship bare

See how I’ll leave with every piece of you
Don’t underestimate the things that I will do
There’s a fire starting in my heart
Reaching a fever pitch and it’s bringing me out the dark

The scars of your love remind me of us


They keep me thinking that we almost had it all
The scars of your love they leave me breathless
I can’t help feeling

We could’ve had it all (you’re gonna wish you)
(Never had met me)
Rolling in the deep (tears are gonna fall)
(Rolling in the deep)

You had my heart inside (you’re gonna wish you)
Of your hands (never had met me)
And you played it (tears are gonna fall)
To the beat (rolling in the deep)

Baby, I have no story to be told
But I’ve heard one on you, now I’m gonna make your head burn
Think of me in the depths of your despair
Make a home down there, as mine sure won’t be shared

The scars of your love (never had met me)
Remind me of us (tears are gonna fall)
They keep me thinking (rolling in the deep)
That we almost had it all (you’re gonna wish you)
The scars of your love (never had met me)
They leave me breathless (tears are gonna fall)
I can’t help feeling (rolling in the deep)

We could’ve had it all (you’re gonna wish you)
(Never had met me)
Rolling in the deep (tears are gonna fall)
(Rolling in the deep)

You had my heart inside (you’re gonna wish you)
Of your hands (never had met me)
And you played it (tears are gonna fall)
To the beat (rolling in the deep)

We could’ve had it all
Rolling in the deep
You had my heart inside of your hand
But you played it with a beating

Throw your soul through every open door (whoa)
Count your blessings to find what you look for (whoa)
Turn my sorrow into treasured gold (whoa)
You pay me back in kind and reap just what you’ve sown

We could’ve had it all (tears are gonna fall, rolling in the deep)
We could’ve had it all (you’re gonna wish you never had met me)
It all, it all, it all (tears are gonna fall, rolling in the deep)

We could’ve had it all (you’re gonna wish you)
(Never had met me)
Rolling in the deep (tears are gonna fall)
(Rolling in the deep)

You had my heart inside (you’re gonna wish you)
Of your hands (never had met me)
And you played it (tears are gonna fall)
To the beat (rolling in the deep)

Could’ve had it all (you’re gonna wish you)
(Never had met me)
Rolling in the deep (tears are gonna fall)
(Rolling in the deep)

You had my heart inside (you’re gonna wish you)
Of your hands (never had met me)
But you played it, you played it, you played it
You played it to the beat
