Adele may not have hit the stage for a live performance at the Billboard Music Awards, but she sure stole the show anyway.
The 28-year-old songstress unveiled a stunning new music video for her latest single, "Send My Love (To Your New Lover)" during the BBMAs telecast, which aired live on both coasts from the T Mobile Arena in Las Vegas on Sunday. The video itself was shot in London and directed by Patrick Daughters.
Adele first teased the project in a short clip on Instagram last week,
ditching her signature monochromatic style for a springy floral gown and
a windswept up-do in the preview. The seemingly-simplistic video opens on the singer standing against a simple black backdrop, eventually layering multiple versions of similar performance shots over each other. The result: trippy and gorgeous!
Adele is currently on tour in Europe through June 15, before she embarks on a North American trek from July 5 to Nov. 15. Her recent shows have been making headlines for more than just her stellar voice, like when she got super real about breastfeeding, twerked on stage, snapped a selfie with her doppelganger, helped a fan propose to her boyfriend, and adorably teared up as her 3-year-old son watched her perform for the very first time.
But as far as we're concerned, not much can top her epic Nicki Minaj rap on Carpool Karaoke. Watch the flawless performance below.
