"Hit the Road Jack" is a song written by the rhythm-and-blues artist Percy Mayfield and first recorded in 1960 as an a cappella demo sent to Art Rupe. It became famous after it was recorded by the singer-songwriter-pianist Ray Charles with Raelettes vocalist Margie Hendricks.

Jack Peñate and Adele covered the song together at a single release party for Peñate. In the cover, Adele sang for most of the song and Peñate played the guitar, although he did some singing too.
