It seems we won’t be blessed by the music gods anytime soon.

Adele has reportedly decided to turn down a duet request from Beyoncé after Queen Bey allegedly pursued the collabo for an entire year.

“Bey has been asking Adele for a year to join forces,” a source told Heat magazine. “She went into the studio with Adele at the end of last year and tried to convince her to collaborate on a track. Adele turned down the offer, so now Bey is putting the song on her new album instead, which everyone is saying will drop before the end of the year.”

We need to address a few things with this shady rumor.

The first is Adele getting all “no thanks to Bey” on us. Secondly, Beyoncé’s album dropping at the end of the year. Faints.

In an interview with i-D, Adele shared that she isn’t too fond of the spotlight of fame. She revealed to the magazine:

I’m just frightened of it, you know? Frightened of it destroying me and it ruining me, and me getting lost and turning into some of the people that I love with my whole musical heart. I get frightened. And I get frightened for the people that I love, feeling like they’ve lost me.

So it was fame that deterred an artist who has won numerous accolades from doing a song with another artist with just as much clout?

Adele’s latest album 25 hits stores later this month.
