when “hello” from adele came out back in 2015,
i was dealing with a lot to feel sad about.
i was in “crush” with a work wolf that would end a year later.
it was legit “hello from the other side” when we stopped speaking.
that song would become a blanket of comfort i would listen to over and over.
i like songs that come out and speak about your exact situation.
you bee like:
have you been stalking me?!?!?”
my favorite part of that song was the background vocals during the bridge.
they described my emotions at that moment.
it is literally one of my favorite songs from adele.
it would be on the soundtrack of my life.
i waited patiently because spotify told me the song was gonna be released at 7pm.
i was listening to wizkid and his album ended right at 705pm.
you know a fox gotta come fashionably late.
you couldn’t not tell me adele’s first single would be a reggae-inspired bop.
one that speaks about heartbreak with a fuckboi on a nice dancehall riddim.
it would have us shouting “bop! bop!” as we weep.
adele teased her new single,
“easy on me“,
on her twitter…
