Although Adele is primarily noted for her voice, it’s all about the lyrics and music, that make a song. As popular as she is today, my love for her has grown, since she initially took the world stage. Dreezy has taken the world of music by storm and has been hailed as the “Princess of Chicago Rap.” Her album “No Hard Feelings” dropped this past summer, and she’s also featured on Aluna George’s track “Mean What I Mean,” from his latest, “I Remember.”
A lot of folks were introduced to Dreezy, when she appeared on Common’s “Nobody’s Smiling,” back in 2014. Her ‘Hard Feelings’ CD includes guest appearances from T-Pain, Jeremih, Wale and Gucci Mane on “We Gon Ride.”
While I did appreciate Adele’s first hit “Chasing Pavements,” from “19,” I didn’t become a fan until she dropped “21.” I’ve been ‘Rolling in the Deep’ ever since. While her vocals give me chills, her ability to tap into the emotions of everyone as a songwriter, is what has truly made her an International success.
Her latest CD “25,” brings together some of the best producers, writers and musicians, including Paul Epworth and Ryan Tedder – who worked with her on “21.” “25” also features new collaborations with the likes of Max Martin and Shellback, Greg Kurstin, Danger Mouse, the Smeezingtons, Samuel Dixon, and Tobias Jesso Jr.
Given the strength of the music and her Grammy history, Adele’s “25” is sure to be noted in the Record, Song and Album of the Year categories. And should be considered for Best Pop Solo Performance, Best Pop Vocal Album and Producer of the Year.
Factoid: Did you know that Adele turned down millions not doing her second Bond theme song? As the singer/ song-writer was working on her latest hit, she opted to not try her top her smash “Skyfall,” by not doing the title track for “Spectre.”
Adele has been touring the U.S., performing before packed houses her run of shows come to a close, on November 21st in Phoenix.
for the LOVE of Dreezy & Adele
