British singer Adele finally addressed the rumours about her and American singer Beyoncé. According to the “Hello” singer, she did not turn down a duet with Queen Bey.
As confirmed on NME, Adele had an in-depth interview with Zane Lowe where she revealed that the rumours were not true.
The British singer admitted that she did turn down numerous offers from other artists. However, Queen Bey was not one of them.
“Obviously, like, Queen B ’til the day I die,” she added.
During the interview, Adele mentioned that she also admired Lana del Ray, Brittany Howard of Alabama Shakes and Tobias Jesso Jr. In her upcoming album, she and Tobias co-written the song, “When We Were Young.”
Earlier this month, IBTimes mentioned that a source told Heat Magazine about the “turned down” collaboration of the two.
According to the source:
“Bey has been asking Adele for a year to join forces. She went into the studio with Adele at the end of last year and tried to convince her to collaborate on a track. Adele turned down the offer, so now Bey is putting the song on her new album instead, which everyone is saying will drop before the end of the year.”
After her three-year hiatus, Adele came back to the music scene when she dropped her latest single, “Hello.” In its first week of release, the song got a million downloads.
In an interview with i-D, Adele admitted her fear of being famous.
“I’m just frightened of it, you know? Frightened of it destroying me and it ruining me, and me getting lost and turning into some of the people that I love with my whole musical heart,” Adele said.
