HEAT EXCLUSIVE: Adele and her connection to New Orleans


Adele releases new album, 25, and she continues to reign as a mega superstar. Unlike most music reviews, the Heat Magazine brings our readers an exclusive and intriguing connection between Adele and the city known for laissez les bon temps rouler. The English songbird is a favorite in New Orleans.
Although Adele did not necessarily need any help, New Orleans continues to lead the way in improvisation and rare creativity. A fairly new arrangement that couples the main body of a song with energy filled percussions, ad libs, and blends, New Orleans sustains a genre known as bounce. Unlike the origin of this Nola-bred style that has permeated the musical world globally, Adele is within a new way of creating bounce.
It all started with her chart-topping “Rolling in The Deep,” which made history being the highest selling song by a female artist. So where does New Orleans fit in? As Mannie Fresh states in a NPR interview, “In New Orleans, we bounce out everything”.
The Heat Magazine wanted to share this fusion of Adele with the up-tempo flavor from New Orleans. We are certain Adele has established a high level of success with millions and millions of record sales. Therefore, bounced out versions of her music may not come as a surprise. However, these examples of musical synthesis are quite different from the average mashup or remix.
It’s highly possible for listeners to gravitate to the new versions more than the original. Take a listen at two of Adele’s top hits “Rolling In The Deep” and “Hello” mixed with one of New Orleans recipes.
