Adele‘s singing voice has already been proven to be impressive, but it turns out the songstress can spit a few bars as well.
On The Late Show with James Corden, Adele participates in the show’s popular carpool karaoke segment. The British singer belts out some of her classic hits like “Hello,” “Someone Like You” and “All I Ask” before revealing her true skill — rapping Nicki Minaj’s verse on “Monster” verbatim.
“I’m not that talented on me own,” she tells Corden when questioned about her rap skills. But as the “Make You Feel My Love” singer started rapping with hand gestures to coincide with the lyrics — it became clear that this isn’t the first time Adele has heard or recited “Monster.” The 27-year-old songbird also sang along to Spice Girls’ “Wannabe.”
Another hilariously impressive part of the segment came with Corden offered to be Adele’s hypeman and ended up giving Flavor Flav a run for his money.
It turns out Adele’s drunken self is super nice as well. She told the host that while waiting for friends at a restaurant she ordered herself a few glasses of wine and ended up paying for someone else’s meal who was celebrating a birthday. She also gave some lucky fans tickets to her show in their hometown, Nashville.
Adele also shared that 25 will be her last album named after an age since she “believes in trilogies.” “I want my fans to come on a journey with me,” she said. And they certainly did.
Check out the video above as we wonder if she knows Kanye West and Jay Z’s verses as well.
