Here’s something that might surprise you — Adele is an expert rapper! The singer showed off her skills during Carpool Karaoke with James Corden, and she sounded like a total pro while spitting Nicki Minaj’s verse in ‘Monster.’ Watch her rapping right here!
Adele, 27, might want to consider changing her genre of music when she starts working on her next album! It turns out that she has a secret skill she’s been holding out on us…she can rap just like the best of them. No, seriously, Nicki Minaj, 33, might have some MAJOR competition here. Check it out!
Leave it to James Corden to bring out this fun side of Adele that we don’t get to see often enough! The pair jammed out together during the newest edition of his beloved, recurring skit, Carpool Karaoke, and the 27-year-old totally showed off a skill we didn’t even know she had. Adele kept up with every beat while rapping along to Nicki’s verse on “Monster,” and it was BEYOND epic.
The 33-year-old loved it just as much as us, too, and took to Instagram to praise Adele’s work. “Pull thru, QUEEN!!!!!!!” she wrote, alongside a snippet from the video. “#Adele #Monster the attitude & fingers to match. #Oh #Ok #IcoNic. I cried when she waved by to the careers. #Hello #BuhBye.” Amazing!
The “Hello” singer is an avid Spice Girls fan, and showed her love for the girl group during her car ride with James, too, by singing their hit “Wannabe,” and totally killing it while spitting Mel B’s bridge verse. We’re used to Adele singing emotional ballads, so this was something totally different…and totally proved that she can do ALL.
Of course, we also got to see her do what she really does best during the clip — she also belted out her own songs like “Hello,” “Someone Like You” and “Rolling in the Deep.” As if we weren’t already stoked enough for Adele’s upcoming tour, which kicks off in Belfast on Feb. 29, this definitely has us counting down the days!
