Is Beyoncé’s Favorite Singer Adele?

Beyoncé is one of the most beloved singers in the world. No matter where you go, you will be hard-pressed to find someone who has never heard of her or listened to her music. We were first introduced to Beyoncé when she was in the ’90s hit pop group, Destiny’s Child. During her career, she has won over 23 awards and has actually accumulated more Grammy nominations than any other female in the music industry.

She has accumulated an impressive collection of number-one hits during her time with Destiny’s Child and during her solo career.  She has become one of the most iconic singers of our time, which is why it is hard to imagine that she is inspired by other singers that are on the radio today.

So, who is her favorite singer and what kind of songs does she like to listen to? It has been rumored that she is a huge fan of Adele. Here is what we know about her love for Adele’s music.

Adele has not been in the music industry as long as Beyoncé has, however, her popularity has quickly risen to the Queen B’s caliber. Since the first time people heard her first album in 2008, entitled 19, the singer’s career has skyrocketed to unimaginable heights. Her first three albums, 19, 21, and 25 have all had their place on the top of the Billboards list.

She may not have quite as many awards on her wall as Beyoncé, but she is definitely not far behind the Lemonade singer. In 2010, Beyoncé made history by becoming the first female singer in history to win six Grammy’s in the same night. then, two years later, Adele joined in the elite Grammy award-winning club by also winning six different Grammy’s in the same night. 

Are Adele and Beyoncé friends?

When you are as popular as Beyoncé, you get to befriend pretty much anyone you want to. We imagine people would line up for miles at the chance to be Beyoncé’s new BFF.

However, when you are one of the most talented musical artists of the decade, it would make sense that you would try to find a like-minded friend who is just as talented. That’s why Beyoncé and Adele’s friendship makes so much sense to us.

According to Life & Stylethe two iconic singers have been hanging out with each other as often as they can. They have apparently been having “secret Karaoke session” together and they enjoy singing together so much, that there are rumors that they may even collaborate on a song at some point in the future.

It has been no secret that the Set Fire to the Rain singer has idolized Beyoncé for many years. In 2017, when Adele won yet another Grammy, she had barely even mentioned her own song, and instead, only talked about how good Bey’s album was.

After she said a brief “thank you” to everyone, she went on to say, “But my artist of my life is Beyoncé. And this album to me, the Lemonade album is just so monumental. Beyoncé is so monumental. And so well thought out, and so beautiful and so-bearing and we all got to see another side of you that you don’t always let us see.”

Beyoncé is pretty fond of Adele too. She had once told Harper’s Bazaar that it is easy “to talk to and be around” Adele. She also added that “She’s funny as hell and her comebacks are legendary.”

So, it seems that Adele and Beyoncé have a mutual love and respect for one another.

Byoncé has said on several different occasions that she absolutely adores Adele’s music. “When Adele sings, you can tell that it is coming from an unfiltered honesty and purity. She creates songs that go deep and expose pain and vulnerability with her soulful voice,” she told Harper’s Bazaar.

Adele has also said that the first time she met Byoncé, the Put a Ring On It singer had told her “You’re amazing! When I listen to you, I feel like I’m listening to God.” That would be a huge compliment that anyone would be happy to hear, but having it come from the Queen B herself, was a truly monumental moment for Adele.
