Adele has released the new music video for â€œOh My God,â€ the Greg Kurstin-produced track from 30 that addresses the complications and difficulty of dating when youâ€™re in the spotlight.
The Sam Brown-directed clip boasts a variety show feel, with the camera capturing Adele as she performs the song along with an array of different dancers and performers.
On â€œOh My God,â€ Adele sings of the fear of putting herself out there â€” and losing herself in the process.
â€œIâ€™m a fool, but they all think Iâ€™m blind/Iâ€™d rather be a fool than leave myself behind,â€ she sings. â€œI donâ€™t have to explain myself to you/I am a grown woman and I do what I want to do.â€
The second single from 30, which follows her Number One charting â€œEasy on Me,â€ is Number 31 on Rolling Stoneâ€˜s â€œEvery Adele Song Rankedâ€ list.
Both singles have helped propel her fourth studio album, Number Two on Rolling Stoneâ€˜s â€œBest Albums of 2021â€ list, to top the Billboard 200 for its sixth consecutive week.
Adele released 30 last November, marking her first album since 2015â€™s 25. While the record was written in the wake of a divorce, in a cover story for Rolling Stone, she spoke about how it was more an album about self-discovery, framed as an open letter to her son.
â€œI didnâ€™t really know myself,â€ she said. â€œI thought I did. I donâ€™t know if it was because of my Saturn return or if it was because I was well and truly sort of heading into my thirties, but I just didnâ€™t like who I was.â€
