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.
— Xavier Dolan (

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.
