Rick Ross Raps Over Adele's "Hello"

After giving Adele's comeback single "Hello" a six-day stretch to live on its own, it's remix time. And Rick Ross is the genius to kick things off. "Salute Adele," the Boss wrote on Twitter. "I remixed her vibe."

Rozay's "Hello" remix wisely lets the 25 singer do her thing for two full minutes at the top, uninterrupted except a few delicious Maybach Music tags. When Ross jumps in, he calmly spits a minute of reflective, wounded bars that build to triumph by the end. Then it's another two minutes of the Queen of England Adele.

Ross released his Black Dollar mixtape at the beginning of September, his third full-length project in 18 months, following March 2014's Mastermind and November 2014's Hood Billionaire, both studio albums. Now he's building up to Black Market, his eighth official LP, coming in December. The "Hello" remix is part of his stir-the-hype #RenzelRemixes series; so far he's done Post Malone's "White Iverson" and Future's "Stick Talk."

Adele, of course, has been dishing awesome details about her first album in four years, due November 20, and generally getting us more psyched on a daily basis.
