Friendly or patronizing? You be the judge!
Beyonce has a brand new record on the way, but sources suggest she delayed the release in order to allow Adele‘s 25 to shine. Now, I gotta say, I’m torn. I definitely think this was a good move on Beyonce’s part, but not because she might take away listeners. Honestly, I think Adele’s much-anticipated hype may have hampered BEY’s success more than it would hurt Adele’s. Beyonce’s a powerhouse, but in my humble opinion…Adele’s a legend.
While the superstar was reportedly ready to release her sixth album at the close of 2015, sources have suggested the star stuck to a ‘code’ by allowing Adele to have her share of the spotlight with her first album in four years.
‘It was wrapped up at the end of 2015 but she held off on a release as a code of honour to Adele, so their records didn’t clash,’ an insider has alleged to The Sun.
‘Beyonce doesn’t have the pressure of releasing an album and is doing bits here and there because she and her team know it is Adele’s time to shine. The last few months have been all about her comeback.
Adele has broken a string of records with her third album, with the debut single Hello spending its first 10 weeks at No. 1 on Billboard’s Hot 100 chart.
‘Now Adele’s sales are starting to die down, Beyonce is ready to drop her album at any time. But there’s a very strong chance the announcement could happen during the Super Bowl next month,’ the insider has added of Beyonce’s plan.

Smart move, but I like how her reasoning makes her seem more humble and co-oporative than she probably is. I guess we’ll see which album is better/sells more when Bey’s drops…
Who do you think is the better artist? Bey or Adele?
