Adele is by far one of the most iconic singers/songwriters of our generation, and in characteristic Adele-style, her new hit single ‘Hello’ has skyrocketed to the top of every chart imaginable. Her incredible success and personal drive is an inspiration to many the world around – but what is it that makes Adele so special? We’ve put together some of our top reasons as to why she’s so incredible.
She Makes the Most of Her Talent
Adele is unequivocally talented. There are just simply no two ways to say this. Her songwriting and singing abilities are phenomenal, and she continues to blow us all away with her ability to connect with the raw emotion of the human condition.
She Always Stays Humble
While Adele is undeniably talented, she’s also incredibly humble about her accomplishments. It takes a big person to be willing to humble themselves – especially as their fame continues to snowball and grow at the rate Adele is experiencing.
She Does Follow Anyone’s Marketing Plan
How on earth is ‘Hello’ so instantaneously famous? Literally overnight, Adele has managed to skyrocket a song and accompanying music video in an industry that’s ridiculously saturated to begin with. How — you may ask? The answer is simple. Despite her age, she’s actually a certifiable marketing genius. By creating the appearance of scarcity in her music, she’s encouraged her fans to naturally love her music – much like some of the best artists, performers and comedians have been doing for years (Jimmy Fallon comes to mind!)
She Taps Into People’s Hearts
Without a doubt, Adele’s music appeals to a very human part of our being. Aside from just having catchy lyrics or singing about her personal life, Adele has also managed to imbue her music with the raw emotion that she undoubtedly feels. Her songs feel authentic and honest, and that makes us each want to connect with her on a deeper level!
She Has Her Own Glamour
She’s indredibly glamorous. Just look at her! No matter what she is wearing, she seems to crush it every time, all while maintaining the characteristic poise and charm that she’s known for around the world.
She Never Let’s Her Age Show
Adele is only 27 years old! Not only is her success even more unparalleled because of her youth, we can all be excited in the fact that we will be able to continue listening to her music for years and years to come! Her youth, combined with her lack of a typical ‘celebrity’ party lifestyle means that she is unlikely to die of unnatural causes – people appreciate her wholesomeness.
She Stays Down to Earth
Adele is real – she’s not an out-of-touch, unrealistic supermodel or a silver-spoon born baby with a chip on her shoulder, she represents reality, and that makes her relatable. People can project their hopes and goals onto her, because if someone so normal and down-to-earth can succeed – anyone can!
She’s Out of the Ordinary
While Adele is perfectly normal and relatable, she’s also a cut above the rest – as far as artists are concerned. While so many other popular music creators are fixated on the superficial things (we’re all looking at you Miley Cyrus), Adele focuses on what matters – which is her music,
Above and beyond all, Adele is incredibly passionate about the music she produces, the fan relationships she forms, and the purity of her passion bleeds through into her every action, interaction, goal and choice. People respond well to passion, and it’s something that should be considered by anyone reading this – if you have the opportunity to, you should engage your business or career with the same passion that Adele has. Pour your heart and soul into whatever it is that you enjoy doing, and people will respond.
