Adele’s “Hello”

Ella Skye, Columnist

On October 23, 2015 Adele released “Hello,” a piano ballad with influences, and lyrics that discuss themes of regret. It accomplished international commercial success, reaching number one in 28 countries including the United Kingdom. It became her second UK number one single, following “Someone like You”, and has had the largest opening week sales in three years. The genre for “Hello” is soul.

We know that Adele has been gone for a year or two—this is because she has recently had a son. This has changed Adele’s opinion and she said that it has influenced her and really brought Adele into figuring out what music she wants to produce.
