SHE broke records worldwide with her heart-rending ballads, but it is her rendition of a manic Nicki Minaj that has blown up the internet with almost 40 million views.

Rolling in the deep with Late Late Show host James Corden, Adele hopes in his four-wheel drive for a 15-minute karaoke session.

The Hello singer belts out some of her blockbuster hits, plus a certain Spice Girl track, while having a chat and cup of tea with Corden.

But at the 10m30s mark, she breaks from her traditionally G-rated fare to drop an R-Rated verse that helped forge Minaj's career on a Kanye West's song Monster.

It was enough to capture the attention of Ms Minaj herself, who tweeted excitedly about the cover.
