The ‘Hello’ singer showed off her secret skill when she performed a word-perfect rendition of Nicki’s guest verse on the Kanye West track - which the rapper herself has now given her the thumbs up for.

Taking to Instagram and sharing a screengrab of Adele in full swing, Nicki branded the skit “iconic”, adding: “Pull thru, QUEEN!!!!!... the attitude & fingers to match.”

She also said: “Adele is mad ratchet. I can't take her.”


Nicki also shared the moment on her Twitter page, referencing her favourite part, when Adele raps: “Just killed another career, it’s a mild day.”

Adele, of course, ended last year on a real high, following the smash success of her third album, ‘25’, which was released in November.

After breaking chart records all over the world, Adele looks set for another eventful year in 2016, with a world tour ahead of her, kicking off in Belfast next month.

She’s also been nominated for four Brit Awards - the most nominations for any act, tied with Years & Years and James Bay - and will be taking to the stage to perform at the ceremony, five years after making a splash with her instantly-iconic performance of ‘Someone Like You’.
