Jay-Z is “keen” to work with Adele.
The hip-hop star met the ‘Rolling in the Deep’ hitmaker for lunch in London to discuss a possible collaboration and the rapper thinks the pair can make a “massive record” together after she made him laugh throughout their chat.
A source said: “Jay has been making the most of his trip over here. It’s not often he is overwhelmed by people when he meets them, but Adele was on top form as usual.
“She talked him under the table. He was chuckling all the way through their chat.
“He’s keen to work with her, whether it’s producing or writing together. She was a huge hit in the States and he believes they could make a massive record together.”
Adele also advised the ‘Empire State of Mind’ rapper to check out Scottish singer Paolo Nutini while at Glastonbury Festival in Somerset, South West England, which he attended alongside wife Beyonce Knowles, who closed the festival on Sunday (26.06.11).
The source told The Sun newspaper: “He told her he was going to Glastonbury and she gave him a guide of what to see. She said he must catch Paolo Nutini. She said he was the must-see act of the festival.”
Adele previously claimed her new friend “smells like money” when she met him at the Grammy awards in 2009.
He said: “Standing in a queue with Jay-Z, Kanye West and will.i.am. It was like an actual dream. I felt so out of place. Jay-Z smells delicious. He smells like money!”
