Jasmine Thompson Performs ‘Adore’ Acoustic: Exclusive Video
Having risen to Internet superstardom through her YouTube channel full of covers of popular hits (the Justin Bieber route to fame, if you will), British-bred singer-songwriter Jasmine Thompson has quickly made a name for herself in the dance-pop music arena, especially in the past year.
After supplying her distinct, angelic vocals to Robin Schulz's global hit "Sun Goes Down" last year, the singer went on to notch a No. 2 hit in her own homeland of the UK after Felix Jaehn — yes, he of "Cheerleader" fame — remixed Thompson's cover of Chaka Kahn's "Ain't Nobody." (That song alone has 116 million views on YouTube and counting.)
But Jasmine's got a steadily growing collection of originals to her name, and after signing a major label deal with Atlantic Records, the singer made a glittering debut with "Adore," an enchanting dance tune that plays perfectly to her wistful, mesmerizing voice. (We premiered the Boy Kiss Girl remix of that song, in case you haven't already added it to your collection.)
We were lucky enough to have Jasmine in our studio earlier this month, during which she performed a gorgeous acoustic rendition of her sparkling title track from her recently released Adore EP. Not only that, but she performed one of her signature covers for us as well. (You'll have to check back tomorrow to find out which one!)
For now, check out Jasmine's gorgeous "Adore" performance up top.
