“To reach someone in the same situation as [me] It is one of the biggest gifts of my entire career.”
It’s easy to forget that Adele and Drake—who hail from opposite sides of the Atlantic and never collaborated musically—are actually good friends. But they remind us more often, which has been happening a lot lately.
You probably know that Adele’s fourth studio album, 30, dropped last week. While she was preparing to release the highly anticipated new record, Drake turned out to be one of her strongest supporters, both publicly and behind the scenes.
The rapper literally referred to Adele as “one of the [his] Best Friends in the World” in October, when he promoted her single “Easy On Me” on his song Instagram story soon after its release. We later learned that Adele played a special role 30 to Drake a year ago, hoping to get his feedback.
Adele spoke more about the bond she shares with Drake during a recent interview s, CBC Radio Show, and we shared some thoughts on why the two understand each other so well.
“We are a dying breed,” she said, referring to both Drake’s and Drake’s international fame, which has become rarer and more difficult to achieve with the advent of live broadcasts. “There were like 10 of us.”
“I don’t think there will be many of us again at the top doing it the way we used to,” Adele continued. “We went out before the broadcast. We got out before all the likes on social media, you have five seconds to entertain; otherwise, get out.” We existed in the old school of industry we grew up in and aspired to [be part of]. “
Adele has continued to call the friendship she’s gained with Drake over the years “one of the biggest gifts”, given that their similar star statuses have given themselves to similar life experiences.
“Reaching someone else knows exactly what it’s like in a certain situation sometimes…if I try to talk to one of my other friends about it, they’ll have no idea what I’m talking about,” she said. They’re like, ‘You can’t relate! “So they stopped working.”
“I can say something [Drake] “He wouldn’t judge me for that, you know?” added Adele. [me] It is one of the biggest gifts of my entire career.”
I still wonder when and how Adele and Drake became such great friends in the first place. But anyway, I’m a huge fan.
