Why I Love Adele: Her Voice and Soul
My love affair with Adele began later than everyone else’s because, well, I’m always tardy for the party. First time I saw her was at some awards show last year singing “Chasing Pavements.” I was all “Who is this? She’s kinda tight.” But she fell off my radar for a bit because I don’t listen to the radio much and I’m a lame.
She stole my heart over a month ago when I heard her song Turning Tables and it had me all in my feelings. Next thing I know, I’m on her YouTube VEVO channel and going from song to song. I could not get enough of her. So I’m here to let y’all know why I LOVE me some Adele Adkins.
Adele knows what she’s good at and she sticks to it. She is PURE. VOCAL. TALENT. Adele ain’t the one to get up and do a two step, drop down and get her eagle on. Nawl. She doesn’t come to us with a show that has fireworks and costume changes. I don’t even want her to do any of this. What she does is sit on a stool and give you EVERYTHING you ever wanted but never knew you needed.
She doesn’t try to do too much. She just comes to SANG and gives life. Adele performs with this “I ain’t even trying to sound this damb good. I am just the shit” swag. And she does it while rocking a ratchet side ponytail. She gives NO dambs. I love she. I love artists who can stay in their own lane. We live in the time where everyone wants to do everything. NOT ADELE! She just wants to SANG. And that she does.
RT @RPinHD “I’ma sang, get my coins, take it to the house and eat a good meal.”
Adele could sing the persian off a rug. She could probably sing the stupid off Tyrese. Gahtdamb that chile can SANG. I listened to one of her songs and kicked down EVERY chair in my house!
Another reason I love me some Adele is that her songs just get you all in your feelings. When the GOOD Lord was bout to give Adele her vocal gifts, He was like “I want you to sing and make the world reassess their lives. Go, my child.”
“Can I have the looks of a supermodel, too?” “See…..now you’re just being greedy. BE GONE, festively plump child!” – @LogicDriven
LOL. Right. Adele being that talented AND skinny would be like
Monica unreal. Adele is pleasantly plump and ain’t nothing wrong with that. She still FAHN.
She could sing the Sesame Street theme song and I’d be crying about a lost love by “can you tell me how to get, how to get to Sesame Street.” Her voice just makes me wanna stand on a balcony reminiscing about better times. I mean DANG. She sings and I hear 1,000 heartbreaks and unfulfilled love stories. Her music makes me just want to cry in my tea for NO reason.
That child got soul. You see that pale Brit and don’t expect much. Then she opens her mouth and the soloist of a Southern Baptist church comes through. Her singing channels the suffering of 1,000 enslaved negros. The day I listened to her song “Rolling in the Deep,” I coulda sworn I was a fly on the wall of the “Underground Railroad.”
Sit up there and tell me this doesn’t sound like the freedom song the slaves sang after they succeeded from escaping with Araminta Ross. I love it. I betchu Adele was Harriet Tubman’s producer in a past life. This song goes so hard in the ANTIQUATED PAINT!!! She better SANG that 2011 negro spiritual like her freedom depends on it! SHE BETTA!!! *kicks down my lamp*
And the John Legend version??? YES LAWD!!! I need ALLA yall to getchu a piece of that one.
Yeah, I love me some Adele. She just drove through and stole my heart with her voice, her soul and the nerve to rock a side ponytail and dare someone to say something to her. Bet ain’t nobody gon check her. (-___-)
The fact that folks like her exist, yet people like Kim Kardashian still think they deserve to get in someone’s studio and record a song is a SHAME before everything. Someone is still allowing these non-singing raggelly heffas to even grab a mic and shriek. Oh.
Ennehweighs, am I the only one with this deep love for this Brit? Do y’all also wanna jump off a first floor balcony at some of her songs? What’s your favorite Adele song?
