It’s been a long six years without Adele on our TV screens, but the British pop superstar is making up for lost time ever since the release of her new song “Easy On Me” last week.
We got our first unfiltered glimpse at the singer during her surprise Instagram Live on Oct. 9, and then the video interviews started rolling in on Friday, starting with BBC Radio 1, Hits Radio and Capital FM, all out of her native U.K., as well as an audio-only interview with BBC’s Zoe Ball Breakfast Show. Then on Monday, we got a hilarious video of Adele blind-taste-testing British cuisine, courtesy of U.K. Vogue. We also got an announcement of the Adele One Night Only TV special coming to CBS on Nov. 14, which will include a sit-down interview with Oprah Winfrey. The two-hour special arrives ahead of the Nov. 19 release of her fourth album, 30.
All this to say: There’s even more Adele on the way. On the latest Billboard Pop Shop Podcast, we’re talking all about Adele’s resurgence for a delightful press blitz and what we’ve missed most about the singer during her years-long absence.
Also on the show, we’ve got chart news about how Lil Nas X and Jack Harlow’s “Industry Baby” jumps to No. 1 for the first time on the Billboard Hot 100, how Dua Lipa’s “Levitating” ties for the second-most weeks ever in the top 10 on the Hot 100, and how Adele’s “Easy On Me” makes a splashy debut on an array of charts, after only a few days of release.
