It's not exactly common knowledge that Adele and Susan Boyle are on the same record label, but they totes are.
The duo are big money-makers for Sony having sold almost 50 million albums, won a raft of awards between them (not to mention they're worth a cool 36million put together). BUT things have been put on pause for Subo as Adele becomes the company's top priority. Burn.
An insider apparently told The Mirror, "Both Adele and Subo have done incredibly well and both are very important artists.
"While Subo is still a big-hitter and there are high hopes for her next album, Adele is the priority... Stateside, she has never been hotter. Some of those within Susan's camp are worried that this is not a good sign but label bosses have been quick to reassure them that Susan still has an incredibly bright future.
"Adele is currently in a recording studio in London and it's in lockdown mode for the next few weeks.... Four tracks are finished in terms of writing and she's now laying down preliminary vocals with backing music and singers."
The source added, "The rest of the record will be done in LA. The feel is very much Adele going back to her roots, with some modern jazz and a couple of classic old songs."
Adele and Subo were due to release their latest efforts just a couple of weeks apart but this is now likely now to become months.
