Music Mondays: Adele

You know what I love about Adele?

The woman is a total boss, she has the voice of an angel and her cheekbones are serious cause for envy. Right? I mean seriously, her face is perfection.
— Chloe Wilde
 
 

In an era where we are constantly bombarded with social media updates, new music, and tabloid stories of our favorite artists - Adele is the kind of singer that can have fans anxiously waiting a whopping THREE years before releasing a music video and within 1 day of being released racks up 25 million views.

We've been patient and it was totally worth it. 

Now that you've watched (and maybe even re-watched) the music video, it's time to dry your tears and dive into some fun facts. 

  • Who directed it?

'Hello' was directed by none other than a  26 year old CANADIAN (wahoo!) named Xaxier Dolan. Anyone else feel really unaccomplished now? 

  • Where was it shot?

The video was shot on a farm in Quebec.

  • Who's the steamy hunk?

That my friends, is Tristan Wilds. Adele's love interest in the music video might be a familiar face if you are a fan of The Wire or 90210. 

  • Ummm it sure is pretty to look at... 

Made history by being the first music video filmed on IMAX cameras.

  • Notice the flip-phone at 0:26? You and the rest of the internet. Here's what the director had to say...  

I could see the GIFs on Twitter,” he tells the Los Angeles Times. “I’m like, ‘Guys, get over it. It doesn’t matter.’ But the real explanation is that I never like filming modern phones or cars. They’re so implanted in our lives that when you see them in movies you’re reminded you’re in reality.

Her latest album, 25, comes out November 20th, mark your calendars! She'll most likely be able to add more hardware to her collection of 10 grammys with this gem.
