It’s been six years since Adele’s last album release, dubbed ’25’. However, after her first interview in five years, a live Instagram video and billboards that boomed ‘30‘ popping up all over the world (including Johannesburg recently).
Adele has stealthily snuck back into the public eye – and South African fans, along with Adele die-hards ” have been playing Easy on Me” on repeat since Adele’s re-emergence from the shadows of self-reflection.
In South Africa, radio stations have featured the queen of heartbreaks track numerous times, and Spotify has sent Adele to the top of the charts, where the song was listened to almost 21 million times in just one day, as per Brent Lindeque.
However, a Capetonian DJ had a hand to play in flying Adele’s flag high. The song has gone viral largely in addition to Snow’s remix.
Here’s what DJ Snow (Shaun Simons) had to say about it.
“I saw all the hype on the social media platforms with the new release coming today, so I actually went on to Adele’s YouTube channel to listen and to hear if it would be a nice, catchy song with a nice chorus that all the people could sing along to,” DJ Snow expressed as per the African News Agency (ANA) on Friday.
“Then I started to fit it to a beat that I made, to hear if it would work. After that, I put up a preview on TikTok to see how the people would react, and I was quite surprised to get so much feedback on it that I decided that I will finish the track.”
His remix has turned a song reserved for our sad-hours playlists, to one that has taken a cheeky South African dance spin.
Now, a TikTokker, @theecalebkay also had a hand to play in the South African spin-off by creating the sound on TikTok.
Take a listen to the song you’ll probably be hearing in every club.
