Adele's IG Live: From teasing new song to adoring Britney Spears, here's all she said
Adele spoke about the possibility of collaborating with pop queen Beyonce and also extended her support to Britney Spears over “#FreeBritney” movement
Adele, who is all set to drop her fourth studio effort apparently titled ‘30’, surprised her fans over the weekend after she hopped on Instagram for her first-ever Live session. The Grammy-winning crooner’s virtual interaction with her fans proved to be quite eventful as she touched upon many topics. The 33-year-old singer-songwriter spoke about the possibility of collaborating with pop queen Beyonce and also extended her support to Britney Spears over “#FreeBritney” movement.
From not rapping the Nicki Minaj’s ‘Monster’ verse again to adoring Harry Styles, Taylor Swift, Doja Cat, and Lana Del Rey, Adele’s first Instagram Live session was loved by all. She even teased her fans with the snippet of her upcoming single ‘Easy On Me’ during the chat. The ‘Hello’ hitmaker dropped her last album ‘25’ in the year 2015 and her loyal fans have since then been eagerly waiting for her to make an official announcement for the new one. Recently several mysterious billboards with the number “30” were spotted in different cities giving birth to speculations that Adele might now finally be gearing up to drop her fourth album.
Adele teases new single ‘Easy On Me’
One of the highlights of Adele’s Instagram Live on October 9 was the singer teasing her fans with her brand new single which might be part of her fourth studio album. The track called ‘Easy On Me’ will hit the internet on October 15, 2021. Before playing the song, Adele said that it might “get her in trouble.” The singer played the track for close to a minute where we could hear the lyrics go, “There ain’t no good in this river that I’ve been washing my hands in forever / And there is hope in these waters, but I can’t bring myself to swim when I am drowning.”
Is Adele working with Beyonce?
During her first Instagram Live session, Adele shed light on her working with Beyonce which, unfortunately, disappointed many as she revealed that as of now, nothing was in pipeline with the Queen of Pop. “I’m not making a song with Beyonce. I don’t know why so many of you are asking that." Adele, however, did share her excitement over Queen Bey’s upcoming album.

Adele gives a shoutout to Britney Spears
During the chat, Adele extended her support to Britney Spears over #FreeBritney movement saying, “I love Britney. I've met her a couple of times. I absolutely adore her. I'm really happy for her.” After 13 long years, Britney Spears' father Jamie Spears was removed from the position of her conservator by a court order of suspension. The move came after an intense legal battle during which the pop icon accused her father of years of abuse.
Adele jokes about not rapping Nicki Minaj’s ‘Monster’ verse anymore
Adele first showed off her rapping skills in 2016 during the Carpool Karaoke with James Corden where she rapped an entire verse of Nicki Minaj’s hit single ‘Monster’ and repeated the same in 2019 at a party in LA. Fans got a great opportunity to ask Adele to rap the verse again but it seems like she was not in the mood to hop on the mic. While praising Nicki, Adele asserted, “I love Nicki. She is so talented and i always admired her work ethic. Monster was a smash and I rap to it every day essentially”. She then added, “I'm not gonna rap the ‘Monster’ verse again. I've done it too many times. Everyone thinks I'm a one-trick pony!”
