Did “Hello” singer pass on a chance to work with Queen Bey?
Adele reportedly turned down a chance to work with Beyoncé. Rumor has it is that Bey tried to collaborate with the British singer for a full year and nothing ever transpired.]
The ill-fated attempt will allegedly be used as a new song on Bey’s album. “Bey has been asking Adele for a year to join forces,” a source said according to the International Business Times. “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.”
Snubbing Beyoncé seems like an odd move for Adele (or any artist for that matter), especially since she was hoping to work with her. “I adore Beyoncé,” said Adele in 2012. “I think her work as an artist and a singer is enviable in terms of the length of her career and how she’s grown and grown, but most of my inspirations are [from] old music and sadly they have all died.”
