Beyoncé’s “Black is King” has just gained another fan – Adele.
The 32-year-old British artist shared a rare Instagram photo of herself crouching down under a TV playing “Black is King.” Adele is raising her arm drawing attention to the screen while wearing a brown shirt that matches Queen Bey’s in the frame.
“Thank you Queen for always making us all feel so loved through your art,” Adele captioned the post, adding two black heart emojis.
On Friday, Beyoncé released the visual companion piece (now streaming on Disney+) to “The Lion King: The Gift” soundtrack, which she produced after starring as Nala in the 2019 Disney remake. “Black is King” explored the beauty of blackness while retelling young Simba’s quest through self-identity.
Adele’s twinning photo almost immediately became the trending topic of the day on Twitter with many adoring the “Set Fire to the Rain” artist’s love for Beyoncé.
“Adele might forget to post about her new music but she would never forget to show her love and support for beyonce, her admiration is so real and authentic!” tweeted @queenadeleslays.
The artist’s last album, “25,” was released in 2015.
“If it’s one thing Adele gonna do she gonna love her some Beyoncé,” wrote @_barzdalyricist.
User @AyoubJabbar3 wrote: “Adele and beyoncé is an endless love story.”
This isn’t the first time, and probably won’t be the last, that Adele has shown her support for the “Love on Top” artist.

When Adele won a Grammy for album of the year in 2017, her acceptance speech was mostly about how the honor should’ve gone to Beyoncé for “Lemonade.” While she appreciated the win she noted that she “can’t possibly accept this award.”
“And I’m very humbled, and I’m very grateful and gracious, but my artist of my life is Beyoncé, and this album for me, the Lemonade album, was just so monumental. Beyoncé, it was so monumental, and so well-thought out and so beautiful and soul-bearing,” she said. “And we all got to see another side to you that you don’t always let us see and we appreciate that and all us artists here adore you. You are our light and the way that you make me and my friends feel, the way you make my Black friends feel is empowering and you make them stand up for themselves. And I love you. I always have, and I always will.”
Though this is the third picture of herself Adele has shared on social media within the last five weeks, the artist isn’t always so forthcoming with selfies.
She made an appearance in May for her birthday thanking fans for sending “the birthday love” and extending her best wishes to everyone in the wake of the coronavirus.
“I hope you’re all staying safe and sane during this crazy time,” she captioned the photo. “I’d like to thank all of our first responders and essential workers who are keeping us safe while risking their lives! You are truly our angels.”
In the photo, she was all smiles, showing off a fitted black mini-dress with balloon sleeves and pointed black heels.
