The internet reacts to the music event of the year: the release of Adele’s latest album, 30.
After much excitement, Adele’s first album in six years, 30, was finally released yesterday, and predictably sent the internet into complete meltdown.

Adele unmediated. Adele unfiltered. Adele opening her Notes app at 3am mid-anxiety attack and jotting down whatever comes to mind.”
High praise indeed.

“It’s like a time capsule,” mused another.

Even Netflix weighed in with commentary:
Over on TikTok, the emotions were still running high:
“I laughed, I cried a number of times, I sweat, I danced, I got shot, I ate and I had many epiphanies.”
