Kanye West’s ‘Monster’ re-enters iTunes chart after Adele raps Nicki Minaj guest verse

Adele showcased her rap skills for James Corden's 'Carpool Karaoke'

Kanye West‘s 2010 track ‘Monster’ is back in the iTunes chart after Adele‘s recent ‘Carpool Karaoke’ appearance with James Corden, which saw the British singer rapping Nicki Minaj‘s verse from the hit.

Corden recruited Adele for his hugely popular Late Late Show segment, which aired in the US earlier this week (January 13). In addition to Minaj, Adele sang The Spice Girls’ ‘Wannabe’ and a selection of her own hits.

After the clip went viral, West’s track (which features Minaj, as well as Jay Z, Bon Iver and Rick Ross) has re-entered the UK iTunes hip-hop chart at Number Two. It’s at Number Eight in the US.


Meanwhile, Minaj has commented on Adele’s rendition. Responding to her take on ‘Monster’, Minaj took to Twitter to write: “Adele is mad ratchet. I can’t take her #UK #WutsGood”.

Adele is reportedly planning to launch her own clothing line for ‘stylish but busy mothers’ later this year.

“It’s still in the early stages, but she’s been getting input from several designers and working on her own sketches,” a source revealed to Now magazine.

Retailer Evans, which specialises in plus-size clothing, has reportedly been lined-up as a stockist.

Tom Doran of Evans told the magazine: ”When we worked with designers Clements Ribeiro, they used designers tried and tested on Adele. Their high street collection for Evans included the Adele dress – inspired by the very outfit she wore [at the 2012 Grammys].”

Adele returned from a three-year hiatus with a new album, ’25’, last year.
