Knowing how talented, HIGHlarious, and genuinely lovely she is, it's no surprise that she's found so many equally gifted people with whom to collaborate!
Adele recently opened up about her INSPIRED sophomore album, 21, and explained that she came to work with OneRepublic frontman Ryan Tedder on the gorgeous track Turning Tables after the two had an awkward encounter in an elevator after the 2009 Grammy Awards!
"The Grammys in 2009—we were both staying in the same hotel. I got in the elevator with about a hundred heart balloons. Then Ryan got in as well and all he could hear is my cackle, which I think has become a bit infamous. And he was kind of searching through the balloons to find me, and we were like, ‘Amazing. We’ve definitely got to work together now.'"
Which made us recall something Tedder said a little over a year ago:
“I’m working with Adele right now, who’s inspiring me like crazy. I hadn’t written a song in about a month, literally, until yesterday. The less I write, the better the songs are.”
So cool - especially now since we've been able to listen to the album in its entirety, and can certainly agree that the track is RIDICULOUSLY good!
We certainly hope you two can collaborate again soon! You two are a musical match made in heaven!
