British-bred beauty Adele has just unveiled the visual for ‘Rolling In the Deep’ successor ‘Someone Like You’. Already finding itself perched atop Billboard’s Hot 100 tally, her recent slip to fellow diva Christina Aguilera’s ‘Moves Like Jagger’ may see the songstress moving back into that familiar spot after fans get a peep at her new video.
The latest single lifted from her multi-platinum ’21’, the Jake Nava-directed visual finds Adele in France sharing her soulful servings in a classic black-and-white clip. Get into Adele’s ‘Someone Like You’ after the jump:
Some will appreciate the simplicity of this video, some will argue it lacks concept. But, with an artist like Adele, one must understand how much of the focal her voice is – even in video. The story and its narrator are often her centerpiece and ‘Someone Like You’ is no different.
Less bells, whistles, background dancers, and other distractions allow one to pay more attention to the storyteller without needing much visual aid.
Some will stare in awe, others will yawn. Tis’ life as Adele.
