Adele: Surprising Stories Behind 5 of her Biggest Hits


1. Hometown Glory

If you’re not an Adele superfan, then Hometown Glory might seem like a catchy ode to urban living. However, Adele revealed that the song was influenced by her mother’s request that she attend university out of the capital. Trying to make a point to her mother, Adele played the song as a protest, letting the world know that she would remain in South London. Another interesting thing to note, Adele says that she wrote the entire track in just ten minutes.
