Expectations were high when Adele joined James Corden for an all-new installment of Carpool Karaoke — and the “Hello” singer blew all those expectations out of the water, revealing just how amazing she already is.
First and foremost: She raps. Adele raps. SHE RAPS! While she tried to play down her insane talent, it was clear that there’s a whole musical side of Adele that we’ve never gotten to see.
Keeping up with (and adding her badass English accent to) Nicki Minaj’s verse from the Kanye West song “Monster,” it’s enough to make us want Adele’s next album to just be entirely hip-hop.
And even Minaj agrees, tweeting after the segment, “Adele is mad ratchet. I can’t take her.”
Another interesting tidbit we learned is that Adele is obsessed with the Spice Girls, and always has been.
So how much did she love them? Her 10th birthday was dedicated to the Spice Girls. Also, Adele revealed that the Spice Girl she related to the most was Geri “Ginger Spice” Halliwell, and when she left the group in 1998, Adele was devastated.
“That was the first time she was truly heartbroken,” Adele shared.
“So that’s what ‘Someone Like You’ is about,” Corden responded, laughing. Then they sang the Spice Girls’ 1996 megahit “Wannabe” and it was just epic!
Among the numerous revelations made by the celebrated singer, it turns out that she provided the drums for her hit “Hello,” and that she has a habit of promising strangers free tickets to her sold-out shows when she gets a couple of glasses of wine into her.
Corden also asked Adele if she’s ever thought about getting her own squad,and suggested that she form a super-squad made up of her, Beyonce, Jennifer Lawrence (who would “bring Amy Schumer”) and Emma Stone.
“Taylor Swift’s squad would s**t themselves,” Corden said. It’s not far from happening, either! Adele, Stone and Lawrence are already friends, and the power-trio have been spotted hanging in New York City in recent months. One can only imagine the squad showdown.
After all, every time the “Water Under the Bridge” singer appears on a talk show, she’s the highlight of the evening. Just check out her comedy chops in the video below, where she goes head-to-head against Jimmy Fallon.
