"What's it like?' But I said to her, 'That voice, it's like an old friend'".

The music superstar celebrated the 10-year anniversary of her groundbreaking album "21" over the weekend, reflecting on the project in a candid Instagram post.

The record topped the charts in over 30 countries, becoming the best-selling album of the year in 2011 and 2012.

But the singer's sophomore album "21", now the best selling of the 21st century, propelled her to true superstar heights with hit singles "Rolling in the Deep", the plaintive love song "Someone Like You" and "Set Fire to the Rain".

In the US, 21 was released February 22, 2011 and went on to earn RIAA-certified Diamond status for selling over 10 million copies in the country.

Adele fans are still waiting for her new music and according to one of her BFFs, it's still coming.

The enigmatic Russian did break with tradition in commenting on the sacking which rather sugar-coated the brutality of the firing. Chelsea are now in the 9th position on the Premier League table with 29 points from 19 games.

She said, "Well I never!" Adele, 32, wrote in the Instagram caption. Still, Thank You from the bottom of my heart for letting us into your lives and for letting me be a soundtrack to some of it'.

The album went onto become the best-selling album in the U.S., U.K., Canada and on iTunes for two years straight, the first album to achieve such an honor since Michael Jackson's Thriller, which ruled the charts in 1983 and 1984.

However, she revealed during the show that she was only on hosting duties, with singer-songwriter HER appearing as musical guest.

Earlier this month, while chatting with Michelle Visage for Grazia UK, Carr shared that 'I've heard some tracks on it.

She also addressed her recent weight loss, saying "And I know I look really, really different since you last saw me but actually, because of all the Covid restrictions and the travel bans, I had to travel light and only bring half of me - and this is the half I chose".
