Adele. There is currently no one who can touch her sound or her style. Evidence of this comes the moment she picks up a pen, opens her mouth and lets her soul out. With “Someone Like You” (new video here), which was released Sept. 29, Adele takes us on a journey we can all relate to in our own way. In the new Adele “Someone Like You” video, that journey has us hovering over Adele’s shoulder as she strolls along the Serene River in Paris. Shot in black and white film, the stripped-down feel of this video, blended perfectly with the painful beauty of the song and, in fact, of Paris itself, lets us feel the song without distraction. She sets the mood. And she gets it so right.
Adele ‘Someone Like You’ Video Released: Watch It Now Here!
In her songs, heartbreakingly soulful melancholy is spliced with sheer drive and determination, and at the crux is nothing more than a woman. That concept is on full display in the “Someone Like You” music video just released, and available here. There is no need for the elaborate light shows, controversial music videos or nip slips that so many pop stars seem to rely on. Just that voice, that star power and the classic beauty and femininity she brings. Listen up, girls around the world: this is talent, and she does it with her clothes on!
In truth, Adele is not a pop star, at all. She is the antithesis of anything pop and bubblegum. Yes, she’s beautiful. She’s sexy. But she does it in a whole new way, and she’s doing it right. Adele is a musician, through and through, and her blues-y, jazzed-up and rocked-out spin on singing-songwriting is more than refreshing in a time where auto-tune rules the day and Justin Bieber and the Jonas Brothers “songs’ are packaged neatly and sold as “music” to our impressionable youth.
Adele is a real woman with a real voice. And that is all we ever want her to be. Watch the Adele “Someone Like You” video here now, and see what we’re talking about.
