Hello Meltingpot Readers,
I don’t know if you all know how much of an Adele fan I am. Suffice it to say, I LOVE HER! Her voice moves me like none other. I could listen to Adele sing the fine print on my phone bill and I’d be crying tears of joy. And now, glory be, she has a new single out called “Hello.” Considering the fact that more than two million people have already liked the video on YouTube, clearly I’m not breaking any news here, but just in case, I thought I should let you know. And so you don’t have to leave this page to see the video, here it is. You’re welcome.
Did you love it? I did. She literally had me at “hello.” And of course, I was terribly curious who that cute young Black man was who played her love interest in the video. I did some sleuthing and found that his name is Tristan Wilds and he’s actually a pretty well-known actor and musician. My guess though is that he’s going to become even more well-known thanks to this video. Yay Adele, for adding some color to your melancholy.
What do you think, dear readers? Is Adele being daring in 2015 by making a Black man her love interest in this video? Have other White female singers done this before? If you can think of anyone, leave me a comment below.
