Adele has said that she and Drake are ‘old school’ and that she believes they are part of a ‘dying breed’ of artists.
In an interview on Canada’s CBC Radio, the British singer was discussing how streaming has dramatically changed the music industry when she brought up the rapper.
“We are a part of a dying breed,” she claimed. “There was like 10 of us. You know, I don’t think there’ll ever be that many of us again at the top doing it the way we were doing it.

“We came out before streaming. We came out before all the social media frenzies of like, ‘You’ve got five seconds to entertain; otherwise, get out’.
“We existed in the old school-ness of the industry that we grew up watching and aspiring to [be part of].”
Adele then went on to talk about her friendship with Drake and how their fame has brought them closer together.
She explained: “Having access to someone else that knows exactly what it’s like to be in a certain position sometimes… If I try and talk to one of my other friends about it, they’ll have no idea what I’m talking about. They’re like, ‘Can’t relate!’ So they just switch off.
“I can say something to [Drake] and he won’t judge me for it, you know? So to have access to someone that’s in the same position as [me] is one of the biggest gifts of my entire career.”
Apparently, the rapper was one of the first people who got to listen to Adele’s track, ‘Easy On Me,’ as she was keen to hear his thoughts.
The 33-year-old recalled: “I was like, ‘Do you think this is like what people want, or not want?’
“And he said, ‘Absolutely’.”
