In 2018, the dividend was £3.9 million. Her Melted Stone Publishing Ltd has cash
reserves of £13.8 million.
This firm takes the profits from her lyrics and sheet music and paid her a £2.9
million bonus compared to 2018s £10.5 million.

'To hear that voice in my headphones was getting me chills. It was just so
powerful and emotive. You know her voice, but to be across the room from
somebody doing that, it's just insane.
'You hear it on the radio and whatever and you go, "Yeah, it's really good", but
to be in the room with these people and feel that energy, it's just so heavy.'
MailOnline contacted representatives for Adele for comment at the time.
It was reported in November that Adele returned to London from the US ahead of

focus on completing her fourth album, which is now expected to be released next

is easy with shades and a face mask.

til next year,' she said on the show.
During the hosting stint Adele also admitted she still hadn't finished her
fourth album, telling the audience: 'My album isn't finished and I'm too scared
to do both. I'd rather just put on some wigs and this is all mine by the way.
Have a glass of wine or six and see what happens.'
In August Adele also admitted she had 'no idea' when her next album would be
released, after responding to a comment posted by a fan on Instagram.
