Divorce Babes, Divorce

Back from her nearly six year break, the genius lyricist Adele has returned with another album. Titled 30, the album is in continuation with her last three albums 19, 21, and 25, after the age she was whilst writing the songs. Adele, now 33, wrote this album 3 years ago during “the most turbulent period of [her] life”: her divorce with Simon Konecki. Adele and Konecki were only married for two years but have one young son together named Angelo Adkins. Announcing the divorce, Adele wrote that she had learned a lot of blistering home truths about [herself] along the way.” On October 15, 2021 Adele released a new single entitled “Easy on Me.” Blowing up on TikTok and other platforms for its amazing lyrics and emotional appeal, “Easy on Me” has taken the world by storm. Everyone is ecstatic for Adele’s return, most notably Adele herself personified her album as “that friend who, no matter what, checked in on me even though I’d stopped checking in with them because I’d become so consumed by my own grief.” Adele fans are looking forward to her new album and can not wait to see what she comes out with next.
