Hello, it’s… Adele? The 32-year-old singer continued her streak of trending posts with a love note to fellow Queen Beyoncé. “Thank you Queen for always making us all feel so loved through your art,” she wrote alongside a photo of herself twinning with the superstar in Black Is King on Saturday, August 2. Adele donned the “Brown & Beige Moon Allover Long Sleeve T-Shirt” from SSENSE as an ode to Bey’s bodysuit in the incredible visual album. While fans love to see icons celebrating icons, many couldn’t believe that the photo was really of Adele!
“Nuh uhnt. This person gonna have to sing as proof before I believe she Adele,” one comment read, gaining over three thousand likes. “She looks like a totally different human,” another added. Responses like these are no doubt a combination of Adele’s recent weight loss and a new hairdo debut. The Someone Like You singer rocked stunning blonde curls that poured past her shoulders in the pic.
Bare-faced and grinning, it’s clearly Adele. The hubbub is also most likely attributed to the fact that public appearances are few and far between from the British beauty. Her last post was in June and also caused a stir. “5 ciders in,” she wrote along with two photos that sent fans into overdrive. In her signature comical way, the Grammy winner danced around and celebrated her weight loss.

I typically keep comments short and sweet, but I just watched the trailer with my family and I’m excited. 🎶please don’t get me hype🎶🤪 “Black Is King” is a labor of love. It is my passion project that I have been filming, researching and editing day and night for the past year. I’ve given it my all and now it’s yours. It was originally filmed as a companion piece to “The Lion King: The Gift” soundtrack and meant to celebrate the breadth and beauty of Black ancestry. I could never have imagined that a year later, all the hard work that went into this production would serve a greater purpose. The events of 2020 have made the film’s vision and message even more relevant, as people across the world embark on a historic journey. We are all in search of safety and light. Many of us want change. I believe that when Black people tell our own stories, we can shift the axis of the world and tell our REAL history of generational wealth and richness of soul that are not told in our history books. With this visual album, I wanted to present elements of Black history and African tradition, with a modern twist and a universal message, and what it truly means to find your self-identity and build a legacy. I spent a lot of time exploring and absorbing the lessons of past generations and the rich history of different African customs. While working on this film, there were moments where I’ve felt overwhelmed, like many others on my creative team, but it was important to create a film that instills pride and knowledge. I only hope that from watching, you leave feeling inspired to continue building a legacy that impacts the world in an immeasurable way. I pray that everyone sees the beauty and resilience of our people. This is a story of how the people left MOST BROKEN have EXTRAORDINARY gifts.❤️✊🏾 Thank you to Blitz, Emmanuel, Ibra, Jenn, Pierre, Dikayl, Kwasi and all the brilliant creatives. Thank you to all at Disney for giving this Black woman the opportunity to tell this story. This experience has been an affirmation of a grander purpose. My only goal is that you watch it with your family and that it gives you pride. Love y’all, B
Let’s focus on the real exciting angle here, though: a possible Adele and Beyoncé collaboration? While rumors have swirled about the pair uniting their heavenly vocal cords for a duet, it hasn’t happened yet. Key word = yet! They’re both fans of each other, so we’re going to keep holding out for these heroes. Until then, stream Black Is King Disney+!
