Adele is onto her third single from ’21” called “Set Fire To The Rain.” Her talent’s have come at a perfect time in music.

Like most trends, music styles are cyclical. This was the summer of pop with Katy Perry, Lady Gaga and The Black Eyed Peas dominating the radio. I’m not saying these artists and their songs are bad, quite the opposite. However, one cannot deny that Adele’s talents are “raw.” Her sound is pure and her style is organic.

Much like “Rolling In The Deep,” and “Someone Like You,” “Set Fire To The Rain” is continues the story of the heartbreaking breakup Adele experienced. She is a very “what you see is what you get personality. When asked how she came up with the title for this song, she responded “it came to me in the middle of the night while taking a wee.” Adele told MTV News:

It broke my heart when I wrote this record, so the fact that people are taking it to their hearts is like the best way to recover. ‘Cause I’m still not fully recovered. It’s going to take me 10 years to recover, I think, from the way I feel about my last relationship. It was the biggest deal in my entire life to date. … He made me totally hungry. … He was older, he was successful in his own right, whereas my boyfriends before were my age and not really doing much. And he got me interested in film and literature and food and wine and traveling and politics and history, and those were things I was never, ever interested in. I was interested in going clubbing and getting drunk.

Adele has since revealed that she is mending fences with her ex and talking with him again. I can’t imagine being this guy! Men be on notice…one bad breakup could lead to the album of the year!
