SEOUL, South Korea — A teen girl’s cover of the epic hit “Hello” has gone viral with more than 14 million views in less than a month.

A video uploaded earlier this month shows a student from Seoul Music High School belting out the Adele single while another classmate plays the piano. The video has garnered more than 14 million views on YouTube since it was uploaded the first week of November. It also has nearly 230,000 likes and 13,000 comments — many of them coming with high praise for the rendition.

The teen’s version is perhaps the most popular among a plethora of covers offered up on YouTube since the original song’s release.

Adele’s “Hello” was released at the end of last month and immediately started smashing records. The online music video got more than 27 million views in the first 24 hours, beating out Taylor Swift’s “Bad Blood,” which had the previous record of about 20 million views in the first 24 hours.
