Adele’s ‘Hello’: Rick Ross Releases Emotional Remix Of Singer’s New Record-Breaking Single

Adele’s “Hello” has received an unexpected remix from none other than rapper Rick Ross.

So far, Ross’ version of Adele’s new hit single has been received rather well. Rolling Stone, among others, calls the mix tasteful and solemn, and Time says the track shows Ross “getting in touch with his feelings.”

Except for a few distorted glitches, the rapper didn’t tweak much of the song.

“Tears fall all the way to the south of France,” Ross spits before the second chorus. “Poverty line hang lower than my pants / Invited to the Grammy’s but I feel so out of place / After we wash plates they was always out of state.” Ross continued with references to the Titanic sinking and Beethoven’s Symphony No. 5.

Ross’ remix of “Hello” is the latest in the rapper’s Renzel Remixes series. The rapper released his version of Future’s “Stick Talk” just one day earlier. Ross’ eighth studio album, Black Market, like Adele’s, is scheduled for release in November.

Rick Ross isn’t the only artist to take such a liking to Adele’s “Hello.” According to the Inquisitr, Twitter was booming with singers like Katy Perry, Lady Gaga, Kelly Clarkson, and Sam Smith all posting their high praises of Adele’s new single.

Although most seem to be blown away by the hit song, others have criticized “Hello” for its similarities to Lionel Richie’s 1984 hit of the same name. BlendTV posted a hilarious mashup of both “Hello” videos that has received almost four million views.

Adele’s “Hello” was the first song released by the singer in three years, and the single has definitely proved that she is still one of the major queens of pop. According to Entertainment Weekly, the music video for “Hello” became an instant hit, breaking Vevo’s record for most views in a single day with 27.7 million views. Taylor Swift’s “Bad Blood” was the previous record holder with 20.1 million views and Miley Cyrus’ “Wrecking Ball” before that with 19.6 million, seemingly proving that women now dominate the world of pop.

In addition to shattering Vevo’s record, Adele’s “Hello” is the first music video ever to be partially shot with IMAX cameras. Xavier Dolan, who directed the music video, said the video gives the idea that Adele is coming back home.

“The shots on IMAX are two shots: mostly the finale on that pond, and there’s the shot of her opening her eyes. I love an introduction like that. It just seemed nice: she had been gone for three or four years. So she’s settling in and taking all of those curtains and sheets off, ripping them down from the walls. It’s like Adele coming back home.”

Although Adele’s “Hello” music video has received more than 73 million views, the singer has to go a bit further if she wants to beat Taylor Swift’s other major Vevo Record. Earlier this month, Swift’s “Blank Space” became Vevo’s most viewed video of all time with over 1.2 billion views.

“Hello” is the first single released from Adele’s upcoming album, 25, which will be the singer’s first album released in almost five years. The full album is set to be released November 20.
