Not everyone becomes an instant trending topic whenever they post a new picture, but when it is singer-songwriter Adele we are talking about, it is only natural. Adele, who earlier left the world stumped over her weight loss, dropped a mysterious picture, on 27th June, accompanied by a cryptic caption for her 37.6 million followers to decode, which some found to be a teaser for her upcoming album. Is it?
In the image, the 32-year-old songstress can be seen singing into a microphone wearing her iconic Chloe dress- a picture from her performance at the Glastonbury music festival in England in 2016. She simply captioned the picture with a smiley face emoji to tease fans further.
The post left her followers scratching their heads and trying to decode the motive behind the picture. And the majority of the guesses were that Adele was hinting at her new album and it is on its way.
“Teaser? Albums coming out today???!!!! Tell me now!!!!” one fan wrote in response to the photo.
While it is almost certain that she is planning something or preparing to drop some bombshell news, Adele’s latest picture is not hinting towards a new album as she quickly squashed the rumors in the comments section by telling the fan that they have to “be patient.”
“Of course it’s not,” she wrote. “Corona ain’t over. I’m quarantining. Wear a mask and be patient.”
But even though Adele hasn’t offered an official timeline for when we will get to her new music, if the rumours circulating around the same are true and all goes well…
…we can expect a new album from her in September 2020
Further corroborating the same is rapper Nicki Minaj‘s statement last year when she shared that she and Adele had recorded an “epic” song together as well as a music video. “Adele made me swear to secrecy that I’m not allowed to tell anyone that I’m working with her,” Minaj said during an interview with Entertainment Tonight.
It was in 2015 that Adele released her album 25, which debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200. It was her third studio album, earning her five Grammys, and setting a long wait of 5 years (and counting) for her next album.
Recently, on her 32nd birthday, Adele set the Internet on a wild spree when she posted a picture depicting an incredible seven stone weight loss
Fans and celebs alike rushed in to praise Adele for her transformation, commenting on it as her biggest accomplishment to date and triggering a massive discussion over how her weight loss happened.
