Ahead of the release of the first single from her fourth studio album, Adele is teasing fans about what they can expect to hear.
Over the weekend, the singer surprised fans when she jumped on an impromptu Instagram Live with fans and engaged in a thrilling Q&A session.
Showing off her natural beauty, Adele went make-up-free with her blonde hair styled to the back and spent almost 45 minutes interacting with her fans and hilariously trying to figure out how to add them to the live chat.
Even with an offer of help from Alicia Keys and Troye Sivan, Adele wasn’t able to able to invite fans to join the live stream. However, she was able to leave them with a gift before logging off.
A Spicy Tease
Towards the end of Instagram Live, the 33-year-old shared an excerpt of her upcoming single, “Easy On Me,” at a fan’s request. Then, joking that she “might get into trouble” for it, Adele went ahead to play the hit tune.
We could hear her powerful voice reverberate through the room as she sang the words, “there is no gold 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 in the silence, baby, let me in/ Go easy.”
The melody was cut short by Adele, who revealed that her phone was already buzzing due to the teased snippet.
A Beyoncé Collaboration?
Among the numerous questions asked by the audience, one that caught the London native’s attention as if there would be a collaboration with Beyoncé. Then, shutting down the rumors, Adele said:
I’m not making a song with Beyoncé – I don’t know why so many of you are asking that. I love her! Not that I know of but I’d love to.
She also revealed that her favorite Destiny’s Child song is “No, No, No.” When asked about her album and when it’s set to drop, Adele said, “It’s dropping soon, don’t you worry.”
