The Unlikely Friendship Between Adele and Drake
Andrew Parker - February 22, 2019


By Greta Zwaan

I sought for joy in peace, and rest to ease my weary mind,
Stressed out by such a heavy load, rest I just had to find.
My endurance could hold no more, my limits had been met,
I needed time to stand aside, sweet time to just forget.

But where to find the road to peace, an obscure trait to me;
My hectic lifestyle can't comprehend a way to set time free.
I've always rushed from A to B with no side glace allowed,
I had my life so well controlled; in truth, I felt quite proud.

No one could tell me what to do, I was a self-made man;
My schedules were controlled by me, I had a thorough plan.
'Twas good when all things went my way and no one interfered;
I had no one to answer to, my way was always cleared.

But years of this brought me no joy, though fortunes I'd amassed;
It seemed that all the things I owned would oh, so soon be past.
I had no friends that knew my plight, I kept myself at bay,
They all had troubles of their own; besides, what could they say?

They envied me with all my wealth, they never saw my pain,
I had life altogether, what more was there to gain?
But loneliness is terrible and emptiness is sad,
There seems no purpose for each day, no reason to be glad.

So now I wait; why? I don't know, but life for me must change.
There must be more than fortunes, a way to rearrange.
There has to be a purpose, and someone surely knows,
Why life is complicated, and days so full of woes.

Perhaps you have the answer, perhaps you know the route,
Perhaps you've traveled here before; if so, please help me out.
If need be, I'll be patient, I'll even take advice;
I'll gladly make the changes, no matter what the price.

I don't need independence, I've had my round of that;
I long for understanding, to know just where I'm at.
Someday I hope to thank you because you saw my need,
Perhaps with greater meaning, with purpose, not with greed.

I don't know how I got here, what lies ahead of me,
I'm grateful there'll be changes, I'm grateful to be free.

From a genre standpoint, Adele and Drake are as opposite as you can get. Adele is a soulful, pop singer whose angelic vocals can bring the roof down any day. Drizzy Drake is our favorite rapper we’ve all watched start from the bottom to the top. So when these two hung out in Los Angeles the other day, the internet immediately wanted details.

The two superstars first hit up famous Jerry’s Famous Deli in Studio City, California. Its famous for its huge menu of more than 700 items. They then went next door to Pinz Bowling Center. And because they can, they rented out the whole place and invited their friends. It was a private event so there are no pictures to capture what must have been the funnest bowling party ever. To wrap up the outing, they stopped at Chill N Vape Lounge where Drake reportedly bought a Juul, plus mango and peach pods.

Drake and Adele have a lot of respect for each other as artists. Adele attended Drake’s concert and posted on social media about it afterward.

Drake shared Adele’s post on his Instagram and wrote, “Oiiiiiii don’t f****** get me gassed right now,” he wrote. “I love this woman and she came to the show. Thank god nobody told me I would have been SHOOK.”

We’re totally here for this friendship. Maybe they’ll even collaborate and release a song together? If that’s not a dream duo, we don’t know what is.
