Adele — obviously back from the other side — is lighting up the internet (and the charts) in anticipation of her long-awaited fourth studio album, 30.

As you all know, Adele has stayed largely out of the public eye for the past couple of years — healing from her divorce and honing her sound for the album.

But, in a new interview with Capital Breakfast, she revealed that she hosted a listening party for the new album for her friend, the one and only Certified Lover Boy rapper Drake.

"I played it to Drake last year when he was in town," she shared. "And I was like, ‘Is this what people want, or not want?' And he said, ‘Absolutely,’ but that’s it really.'"

The "Easy on Me" singer and Drake have become good friends over the years, with the Canadian artist showing support for her new single in his Instagram story. "One of my best friends in the world just dropped a single," Drake wrote with a smiley emoji, which gave high school BFF shoutout vibes in the purest and most wholesome way possible.

When asked if she shared the album with anyone else, she added, "Drake’s obviously incredible and amazing as well as being my mate, but I don’t send it around to various people being like, ‘Can I get your thoughts on this?'"

Because, duh, she knows what the hell she's doing. Clearly.

"It’s always about how it makes me feel, quality control is my forté, and I can write a song about my own experiences and my own life," the 33-year-old said. "People certainly aren’t waiting for a club banger from me."

So, there you have it! While Drake and Adele aren't likely to collab any time soon (although they have sort of flirted with the idea before), be sure to stream "Easy on Me" for clear skin and enviable luck!
