Pop singers Kelis and Adele are trending after teasing their new projects for their fans on social media.
Kelis teased her new single “Midnight Snacks” on Twitter on Tuesday. The 42-year-old “Milkshake” captioned the clip:
“This has been a long time coming… Midnight Snacks is dropping this Friday!! Pre-save.”

Meanwhile, Adele shared a 22-second clip of an intro to her song titled “Easy On Me” — along with the release date – October 15.
The B&W clip shows the British chanteuse popping a cassette tape into a tape deck. A piano chord plays while her sheet music scatters to the wind from a truck loaded down with her possessions.
Fans were ecstatic to finally hear new music from the pop star who hasn’t been heard from musically since her album 25 was released in 2015.
While working on her fourth studio album – titled 30 – Adele took time off to divorce her husband and raise their son. Now she is set to release 30 at age 33.
Not everyone is pleased to hear Adele is releasing new music.
One Twitter user chastised American Blacks for celebrating a British lady while ignoring Black artists right here in America.
“Why don’t y’all show the same love & support for our Jazmine Sullivan’s, Ledisi’s & Lalah Hathaway’s than y’all do for that British lady?”

This comparison makes no sense. Adele is a pop artist not R&B/Soul.

Didn’t Jazmine Sullivan win Album of the Year at the BET Awards and sang the national anthem at the super bowl? This year has been phenomenal for her, and we’ve celebrated and lifted her up throughout. Let’s end this conversation finally.

The British lady is a white pop contemporary singer. I’ve never felt ‘soul’ from Adele. Amy Winehouse was more soulful than Adele to me. I’ve never understood the hype around Adele. Give me Celine Dion for adult contemporary music any day.
