While answering Vogue’s “73 Questions” at her home in L.A., the “Easy On Me” singer was given the tough task of ranking Queen Bey’s top three albums.
“That could be controversial. The Hive might come and kill me,” Adele joked before sharing her “personal favorites.”
At the top of her list is Bey’s third studio album I Am… Sasha Fierce. The “sublime double album” was followed by 2016’s Lemonade.
Her third choice was a toss up, but she ultimately went with B’Day. “I’m gonna go with my gut and my heart and I’m gonna say B’Day,” she said of Bey’s 2016 sophomore project.
Adele’s love for Beyoncé is no secret. She paid tribute to her during her 2017 Grammys acceptance speech. After winning Album of the Year over Lemonade, Adele went to Beyoncé’s dressing room.
“I just said to her, like, the way that the Grammys works, and the people who control it at the very, very top-they don’t know what a visual album is,” she said during her Vogue interview. “They don’t want to support the way that she’s moving things forward with her releases and the things that she’s talking about.”
Adele also revealed her three favorite songs from her own catalog, including “Someone Like You” and “When We Were Young.”
On Nov. 19, Adele is set to release her new album 30. The first single, “Easy On Me,” has become the most-added song in the history of Mediabase across five different formats including Top 40, AC (adult contemporary), Hot AC, AAA (adult album alternative), and R&B.
