Adele has been a worldwide superstar for years, but she thinks she’s only just now getting to Taylor Swift’s level of success.

On “etalk Presents: Adele Live in London,” which aired on Friday,” Adele discussed breaking Swift’s single-day Vevo record. Swift previously held the title for the most views in a day when “Bad Blood” racked up 20.1 million earlier this year. Last month, however, Adele’s “Hello” topped that with 27.7 million.

Reflecting on the accomplishment during her sit-down interview, Adele shared, “I love Taylor Swift, and when I found out I was like that’s pretty epic. Not beating her, but just being on the same level as her was fantastic, because I think she’s wonderful.”

Adele’s kind words about Swift fit right in with what Gossip Cop recently reported. After Adele talked about not having a “squad” in her Rolling Stone cover interview, Celeb Dirty Laundry made up a story about Swift wanting to get “revenge” for the supposed diss. Gossip Cop debunked the silly claim, pointing out that this alleged new feud was non-existent.

But it’s not just Swift that Adele holds in high esteem. She also told “etalk” about her love of Drake and his song “Hotline Bling.” “I really want us to do an official remix,” she confessed. Maybe all three can work something out? The music world can dream…
