In a new interview with USA Today, the singer says her 3-year-old son’s voice can be heard on the track “Sweetest Devotion.” It’s an appropriate contribution, given that the song was written with him in mind.
"The song is all about my kid,” she said. “The way I've described it is that something much bigger has happened in my life. I love that my life is now about someone else."
But featuring Angelo’s voice on a song doesn’t mean she’ll be pushing him into the spotlight any time soon.
"I don't want that for [Angelo] until he can start making his own decisions," the British singer-songwriter, 27, explained. "Right now he can choose if he wants a bag of [chips] or a banana, but he can't make a choice about being in the public eye. If when he's 16 he wants to be known for being my child, he can do that. But right now he's very much a minor, and we have vowed to make that decision for him."
She added, "It’s hard enough for being a kid anyway, let alone being a famous person’s kid.”
As for Angelo’s dad, Adele’s boyfriend Simon Konecki, she said, "I've had boys all my life, and it's so much better if you have a man. Boys are insecure; they can't keep up with me. When you have a proper man, it's different. Nothing fazes him. I love him."
Adele’s "25" comes out Friday.
