Adele on 'Beyoncé: She is the 'most inspiring person'

Beyoncé’s new album Lemonade took the world by storm after its surprise release and British songstress Adele was not exempt from the allure of Queen Bey.

The 25 singer paid homage to Beyoncé on Instagram with a photo of her nuzzled up next to a big photo of the single art for “Irreplaceable.” She explained why she had yet to comment on Lemonade: She had nothing to say.

“I’m not late on this I’ve just been speechless,” Adele wrote. “Beyoncé is the most inspiring person I’ve ever had the pleasure of worshipping. Her talent, beauty, grace and work ethic are all in a league of their own. I appreciate you so much! Thank god for Beyoncé X.”

Like 25, Lemonade has owned the Billboard charts. Beyoncé set the record for most songs by a female artist on the Hot 100 simultaneously when all 12 of her sixth studio album’s songs appeared on the chart.

In terms of sheer sales, Lemonade has a long way to catch Adele: 25 has sold over 8 million copies in the U.S. alone, according to the RIAA.
