The song is already sparking the creation of many memes on the internet, practically becoming an overnight sensation. Since its release, fans have been tweeting about how much they love the song and how they can relate to it; even those who have never been in relationships are saying how much they’re crying over it.

“I think it became so popular because Adele has not released music in so long and the music she came out with a few years ago was such a mega hit, that it was just a matter of time before she released new music and that it be so perfect. I loved the song; it was so brilliant. Probably the best song of the year. It was just such a strong song for Adele to take back her place as the queen of music,” junior Amanda Lopez said.

With this new song coming out, Adele will also be doing a lot of promotion for her upcoming album. BBC will be doing an upcoming hour long special on Nov. 2, 2015. Make sure to be on the lookout for Adele’s new singles and her upcoming Album 25.
