Sam Smith's Cover of Tracy Chapman's 'Fast Car' Will Change Your Life

Can Sam Smith just do all the covers from now on?
The "Stay" singer recently performed a gorgeous, acoustic rendition of Tracy Chapman's "Fast Car" for BBC Radio 1's Live Lounge. We didn’t know it was possible to improve on the 1988 original, but leave it to Mr. Smith to completely nail it. Seriously, we can’t. stop. listening.
Earlier this summer, Smith got everyone's attention with his cover of Whitney Houston’s "How Will I Know." It takes a brave soul—man or woman—to cover Whitney, but the UK singer did not disappoint.
