In Adele’s Wednesday tweet, she explained, “My last record was a break-up record and if I had to label this one I would call it a make-up record. I’m making up for myself. Making up for lost time. Making up for everything I ever did and never did.”
Fans were understandably excited by the news.
Only @Adele could take a word as ubiquitous as "Hello" and take immediate ownership of it as now HER word. Bow down.
