Hello. It's she. Adele's long-awaited album "25" dropped, and it instantly made her a worldwide trend. But before the globe braced itself for the British crooner to smash every music record in the game — she was Adele Laurie Blue Adkins, aspirational singer.
Here's five things you may not know about Adele. First up: Adele was discovered on Myspace, using her top eight to her advantage to network a deal with XL Recordings.
"I studied music from 14 to 18, and part of the course was to learn how to record yourself, you know, demos and stuff, and I used to give them to my friend Lyndon, and yeah, he put them on Myspace in 2004. So way before anything was going on. I wasn't even bothered. I was like whatever," Adele explained to Billboard in 2008.
