Adele's return has been a hot topic of discussion on the Internet for quite some time now. The 'Hello' hitmaker, who hasn't released a studio album in almost five years, set fire to the rumors of her impending return once again after being announced as the host for next week's 'Saturday Night Live'.

The 32-year-old singer posted an official announcement about her 'SNL' appearance across her official social media accounts. On Instagram, along with a picture reading 'October 24th' and 'HER', Adele wrote, "Bloody hell, I’m so excited about this! And also absolutely terrified! My first ever hosting gig and for 'SNL' of all things! I’ve always wanted to do it as a stand-alone moment, so that I could roll up my sleeves and fully throw myself into it, but the time has never been right. But, if there was ever a time for any of us to jump head-first into the deep end with our eyes closed and hope for the best, it’s 2020 right? It'll be almost 12 years to the day that I first appeared on the show, during an election...which went on to break my career in America, so it feels full circle and I just couldn’t possibly say no! I am besides myself that H.E.R will be the musical guest! I love her SO much I can’t wait to melt into a flaming hot mess when she performs, then confuse myself while I laugh my a**e off in between it all. See you next week."

Adele, according to the singer herself, will be hosting 'SNL' next week while the musical guest will be the 23-year-old upcoming R&B sensation HER. Fans have begun to speculate the release date of the unannounced fourth studio album of the British singer-songwriter who had four #1 Billboard Hot 100 hits between 2010 and 2015. On Twitter, the 'Skyfall' singer's name started trending immediately. The official Pop Crave Twitter account posted a tentative release date for Adele's fourth album writing, "Adele rumored to release her new album on Friday, October 30th, Showbiz reports.The singer just revealed on social media that she will be hosting 'SNL' on October 24th."



More fans had their own theories about the release date of the pop star's upcoming as-of-yet unconfirmed album. One fan tweeted, "Adele’s album is coming November 27th I think; that’s what a bunch of insiders are saying. But even if that’s wrong, it’s definitely not in October," while another wrote, "Adele has done literally nothing the last 5 years. And all of a sudden she decides to host 'SNL'? The same year she was working on an album. Around the time she releases albums (October-November). I think that it’s unlikely she’s not gonna announce anything."





There were also those who pointed out that, if Adele releases an album in October, she'll be going head-to-head with Ariana Grande who's also set to drop her sixth full-length record, 'Positions', the same month. Speaking on the topic, one Twitter user said, "Why is Adele dropping an album in November? She couldn't wait 2 months more? Like, why? You know what? This is a challenge and ARMYs like challenges so...who's ready?"

Another opined: "So Adele was rumored to release a new album this coming November. Taylor and Ariana your career is going to...ugh I can't even say," while an Ariana fan tweeted, "All these Ariana antis celebrating the possibility that Adele blocks Ariana new album from reaching #1...you guys literally need a job and a life my God," while another said, "OMG OMG Ariana is really over."







More Ariana fans came out in support of their favorite pop star. One wrote, "I have a feeling Ariana will outsell Adele, i don't know how and why but it will," while a different fan tweeted, "don’t act like Adele needs any fandom. She could be hated by every fandom on earth and still sell millions of copies / Ariana is more than just "Scooter’s client". Stop acting like Scooter is the only thing that defines her. She is her own person for god’s sake."





Adele is one of the best-selling musicians of the 21st century with her albums '19', '21' and '25' selling over 6.5 million, 31 million and 22 million copies worldwide respectively. Her last two albums debuted at the top of the Billboard 200 and, in addition, she holds a record of 37 weeks at #1 on the UK Albums Chart, more than any other female artiste.
