During their conversation, which you can watch above, Adele was asked if she had played the new album for any of her fellow artists to get their opinion on it. While she said she didn't share it with many, the singer did reveal that she gave her good friend Drake a first listen of the whole project.
“I played it to Drake last year when he was in town,” she said. “And I was like ‘is this what people want, or not want?’ And he said ‘absolutely’ but that’s it really.’”
Adele went on to say that she’s not really into shopping her albums around to others to get their thoughts on it before it drops.
“Drake’s obviously incredible and amazing as well as being my mate, but I don’t send it around to various people being like ‘can I get your thoughts on this?”
