View Profile

Adele has released her first song in 3 years yesterday, causing a meltdown on the Internet.  The song, called Hello shows so many entertaining similarities to Lionel Richie’s 1984 hit that is is sparking parodies, pictures and chatter about the new generation approach to an old favourite.  The humour of the moment was not lost on Lionel Richie himself, who posted this picture on Instagram to a lot of likes. “HELLO @adele is it me you’re looking for” was his bite at the star who’s song is similarly laid back, mellow and piano centric.

  1. I love this young woman. What a wonderful role model for young girls. She is not only a wonderful singer but she has stared down the body bullies and told them where to go.

  2. Both wonderful singers – both songs fantastic. Adele is amazing hv missed her music. Her music is addictive.

  3. I love Adele’s music and this new song. There is no comparison to Lionel Ritchie’s Hello which was also a great song.
