Adele’s Song ‘My Little Love’ Includes Conversations With Her Son About Her Divorce

Culture

Adele really came for our feelings with “My Little Love,” the soulful third track on her new album 30. The emotional song contains recordings of herself and her nine-year-old son, Angelo, discussing her feelings about her breakup with Simon Konecki, Angelo’s father. (The singer filed for divorce from Konecki in 2019 after eight years together, including three years of marriage.)

Between soothing verses and refrains, we hear snippets of Adele and Angelo’s vulnerable and heartfelt conversations about their love for each other and the singer’s confusion post-divorce. Like:

Angelo: Do you like me?
Adele: You know mummy doesn’t like anyone else like I like you, right?

And:

Adele: I love your dad ’cause he gave you to me. You’re half me and you’re half daddy.

The song ends with an especially heartbreaking recording of Adele, speaking solo, about a bad day—“the first day since I left him that I feel lonely,” she says through tears.

As much as 30 is about Adele sharing her experiences in her divorce and her journey of rediscovery, it’s also a way for her to try to communicate to her son what she was going through in this trying period of her life. “I can’t make that make sense to a nine-year-old,” she told Vogue.

While speaking to Oprah Winfrey during the Adele One Night Only TV special that aired this week, Adele also explained how she was troubled by how Angelo might be affected by her and Konecki’s separation. She said she felt “somewhat selfish” for doing that to her son and looking out for her own happiness, per HuffPost.

“And I knew that as an adult, Angelo would be livid with me for doing that,” she explained. “I knew that when he became an adult that he’d be furious at me. And I didn’t want that either. But it was, it was hard work.”

She added, “I just wanted him to hear me talking madly deeply about who I am and how I feel, like you know, and I don’t know if I’d ever be able to have that conversation with him in real life.”

My little love
I see your eyes widen like an ocean
When you look at me so full of my emotions
I’m finding it hard to be here sincerely
I know you feel lost, it’s my fault completely

Adele: Tell me you love me
Angelo: I love you a million percent

I don’t recognize myself in the coldness of the daylight
So I ain’t surprised you can read through all of my lies
I feel so bad to be here when I’m so guilty
I’m so far gone and you’re the only one who can save me

Angelo: Oi, I feel like you don’t love me
Adele: Why do you feel likе that?
Angelo: Do you like me?
Adele: You know mummy doesn’t like anyone else like I like you, right?

I’m holding on (barely)
Mama’s got a lot to learn (it’s heavy)
I’m holding on (catch me)
Mama’s got a lot to learn (teach me)

Adele: Mummy’s been having a lot of big feelings recently.
Angelo: Like how?
Adele: Just, like, mummy, I’m, I’m, the feeling that I have…Like, um, I feel a bit confused
Angelo: Why?
Adele: I don’t know. And I feel like I don’t really know what I’m doing.
Angelo: Oh, at all?
Adele: At all.
Angelo: And that would make me go…

My little love, tell me do you feel the way my past aches
When you lay on me can you hear the way my heart breaks
I wanted you to have everything I never had
I’m so sorry if what I’ve done makes you feel sad

Adele: I love your dad ’cause he gave you to me. You’re half me and you’re half daddy.
Angelo: Oh

I’m holding on (barely)
Mama’s got a lot to learn (it’s heavy)
I’m holding on (catch me)
Mama’s got a lot to learn (teach me)

Adele: I’m having a bad day, I’m having a very anxious day
I feel very paranoid, I feel very stressed
Um, I have a hangover, which never helps, but
I feel like today is the first day since I left him that I feel lonely
And I never feel lonely, I love being on my own
I always preferred being on my own than being with people
And I feel like maybe I’ve been, like, overcompensating
And being out and stuff like that to keep my mind off of him
And I feel like today, I’m home and I wanna be at home
I just wanna watch TV and curl up in a ball and
Be in my sweats and stuff like that, but I just feel really lonely
I feel a bit frightened that I might feel like this a lot
