Pair worked together on 'All I Ask' from '25'

Bruno Mars has detailed working with Adele, saying that the star acted like a “diva” in the studio at first.

Mars co-wrote Adele’s song ‘All I Ask’, which featured on last year’s massive-selling ’25’. Speaking on New York radio show Cubby & Carolina Bermudez In The Morning, the US singer described his first impressions of Adele.

“She walks into the studio, she’s got all this attitude, she’s a diva, she’s like, ‘I don’t want to do this. I don’t like that,'” he remembered.

“And then as soon as we hit a couple chords that she liked, we started rolling, and that’s where we got that song from”.

“She’s incredible,” Mars went on to say. “There was a moment when she was singing in the booth, and I’m not exaggerating at all and the water was vibrating…like you know that scene in Jurassic Park. She’s got some pipes on her, and she’s just a superstar.”

Mars also said that he would be open to performing the song live with Adele: “I don’t know what she’s waiting on, man. I’m like come on Adele, like, send an email, let me know!”

Adele recently said that her decision to quit smoking has made her voice “weaker”. “The people with the best voices, they always smoke,” she said. “I’ve given up smoking and I’m convinced that’s made my voice weaker.”

“Bruno [Mars] smokes like an old woman,” she added. My make-up artist will stink after having a fag. I had never noticed it before.”

’25’ has gone diamond in the US. Adele’s third LP has shifted 10 million certified units in America alone since its release in November 2015. The album’s lead single ‘Hello’ has also been certified as seven-time Platinum.
