The Return of Adele

By Anny Jules 

After 4 years since the release of her last album “21,” Adele has risen from the shadows to grace us all with what many anticipate to be another classic album.

 

 

 

To add to the collection of her chart-topping hits, Adele released her first single and music video from her upcoming album “25.”

 

The song is titled “Hello” and its music video debuted on Vevo on Thursday, Oct. 22 to over 13 million views in less than 24 hours. 

 

 

 

It’s safe to say that fans are pretty excited about Adele’s return, but they’re not the only fanatics. A slew of A-list celebs including Katy Perry, Kate Hudson, Kelly Clarkson, and Sam Smith have voiced their support and praise of the single that delves into the turmoil Adele faces as she attempts to reconcile with a former lover. 

 

 

The “Hello” music video features actor and rapper Mack Wilds as Adele’s love interest. Though the music video is simplistic in its direction, Adele’s undeniable vocal talent carry the song and video home and into the hearts of all her fans. 

 

Well done Adele.
