…and she’s back.
Now, I know that this song is super popular and getting to be a *teensy bit* overplayed on the radio, but really, I think “Hello” is one of Adele’s better songs that I have heard from her so far in her musical career.
…not to say that I don’t like Adele. I think she has a solid, powerful voice, but it’s her genre– blues and soul– that I’m not such a fan of. I’m not going to lie and say that I didn’t enjoy tracks such as “Rumour Has It” and “Hello,” but in general, I never got what the hype was all about back in 2011, when “Rolling in the Deep” and “Someone Like You” were played over and over again on the radio.
I suppose, though, if her songs weren’t so overplayed, I might have enjoyed her songs from 21 a bit more. But unfortunately, that isn’t the case…that’s life… 😛
BUT, getting back to the slow jam: when I first heard “Hello,” I found it…refreshing. It was unlike her previous songs, which were usually louder and more bombastic, with a full orchestra and everything. Adele sounds more vulnerable here, and the chorus is hauntingly catchy. You have to admit, too, that the music video is brilliantly produced.
So, Adele…you’ve made me a fan, for the moment. Will need to hear more songs from the newest album, 25, in order to see if I really have become a newly-minted Adele follower.
In any case, enjoy this week’s slow jam! Have a good rest of the weekend. 🙂
