British pop star, and Grammy winner, Adele, has another international hit on her hands with her latest ballad, “Rolling In The Deep.” The single, currently number 11 on iTunes, has been covered by another Grammy winner. John Legend allows his emotions to burst with a stripped-down version of the song.

Mike Posner also covered the song, however unlike Legend’s a cappella take, Posner infused it with electronic sounds. Legend lets his smooth voice carry the song, with no back up music — just back up singers.

Legend tweeted “I love this Adele song. decided to cover it.” Soon after, he tweets “Next up, i’ll cover rebecca black. I need 40 million youtube views!”

He may be joking about the Rebecca Black cover, but he was not joking around with his version of “Rolling In The Deep.” Check out the beautiful rendition of the song below:
