OneRepublic’s fifth album, “Human,” is slated for a late November release. Some fans online have speculated that Tedder was joking about the Beyoncé and Adele collaboration, as it turns out, they were right.
Meanwhile, Adele is also said to be releasing her next project soon, the follow-up to her acclaimed 2015 album “25.”
The British songstress has publicly shared her adoration for Beyonce. Most famously during the 2017 Grammy Awards, when she won album of the year for her record 25, over Beyoncé’s iconic record “Lemonade.”
“The artist of my life is Beyoncé,” Adele tearfully explained during her acceptance speech. “And this album to me, the Lemonade album, was just so monumental, Beyoncé, so monumental, and so well thought out, and so beautiful and soul-bearing, and we all got to see another side to you that you don’t always let us see. And we appreciate that, and all us artists here f*cking adore you. You are our light, and the way that you make me and my friends feel — the way that you make my black friends feel — is empowering, and you make them stand up for themselves. And I love you, I always have, and I always will.”
