阿黛尔, 33, revealed that she used the Canadian rapper as a sounding board for some of the tracks on her forthcoming album.
“I played it to Drake maybe last year when he was in town just to get… I’m like, ‘Do you think this is like, what people want or not want?’ And he was like, ‘Absolutely,'” she said on the U.K. 广播节目 Capital Breakfast.
虽然 “在黑暗中翻滚” singer said that she typically doesn’t play her music to celebrity friends ahead of time, Drake was an exception.
“不, I don’t send it around to various people being like, ‘Can I get your thoughts on this?'” 她说. “It’s always just about how it makes me feel. Quality control is my forte. And I can write a song about my own experiences and my own life and stuff like that.”
“People certainly aren’t waiting for a club banger from me. I feel like I’m gonna give people what it is that they’ve been missing while I’ve been away,” 她补充说.
“One of my best friends in the world just dropped a single ?,” he wrote atop a photo of the singer. “@adele ??? WOIIIIIIII”
阿黛尔, 同时, praised Drake’s album Certified Lover Boy as her favorite album of the year in an Instagram Live earlier this month.
The Grammy winner’s fourth studio album — which she has said is all about her divorce from Simon Konecki — is slated for release on Nov. 19.

She told the 英国广播公司电台 1 格雷格·詹姆斯的早餐秀 last week that the album was “真他妈难做。”
“I definitely feel like I lost sight of and lost the appreciation of what a gift it is to be into music and be able to make it,” 她说. “我想我有点害怕它一段时间，它真的, really took care of me big time.”
“不仅仅是创造这个记录, 我自己的记录, 但潜入我喜欢的其他人的旧记录中, 在 Soundcloud 或其他任何地方发现新艺术家,” 她继续. “能够一边听音乐，一边在我写下自己的血腥歌曲的同时尽情地哀号，这给我的生活带来了如此多的快乐。”
Adele will celebrate the album’s release with a two-hour CBS special called 阿黛尔仅限一晚, which will be filmed in Los Angeles and air on Nov. 14.
She’ll also be interviewed by 奥普拉·温弗瑞 to discuss the stories behind her new songs, life after divorce, weight loss and raising her son.
