Adele didn't turn down Beyoncé for '25'
In a snippet shared yesterday from Adele’s new Beats 1 interview with Zane Lowe — which airs in full at 12 p.m. ET today — the singer shot down recent rumors that she nixed a collaboration with Beyoncé. “There’s a rumor going round that I turned Beyoncé down,” Adele tells Lowe. “I’d never disrespect her like that.”
She continued, “I’m such a fan, oh my god. Obviously, like, Queen Bey to the day I die.” Adele also cited Lana Del Rey, Alabama Shakes, Florence and the Machine, and CHVRCHES as musicians she’s interested in these days.
Adele’s highly-anticipated third album, 25, drops Friday. It’s her first since 2011’s 21. Check back for updates from her full interview with Lowe.
