Multi-award-winning singer Adele has denied reports that she turned down a collaboration offer by fellow singer-songwriter Beyonce.

There were rumours swirling that Adele declined Beyonce’s offer to record a duet together. The “Hello” singer has now cleared the air in an interview with "Beats 1" radio show. She has said that she would never turn down an opportunity to work with Beyonce.

“Just to clear up, I would never be so disrespectful. I would never disrespect her like that. I’m such a fan, oh my god,” she said.

When asked about her favourite artist, the singer said “Obviously, like, Queen B ‘till the day I die.”

Adele added that some of her favourite musicians lately include Lana Del Rey, Alabama Shakes, Brittany Howard and Etta James. The singer thinks that Rey has stirred her soul.

Meanwhile, in a guest article written for The Guardian, the 27-year-old singer announced that she has co-written a song with Canadian artist Tobias Jesso Jr. Adele also revealed that Jesso, whom she called her “new secret weapon,” has inspired her over the years with his music.

“The way he plays piano -- so felt. The music he makes is romantic, with a ‘70s vibe,” she said.

When she appeared on “Beats 1” radio show, Adele talked with the show’s host Zane Lowe about her struggles with writing songs before returning to the spotlight. The mother-of-one said that she tried writing songs about her son but scrapped the idea because it was boring to non-parent fans.

Adele is set to perform a one-night-only concert on Wednesday, Nov. 18 in New York for an NBC concert special. She is expected to perform her first single “Hello” from her upcoming album, “25.”

On Monday, another song from Adele’s new album debuted on Twitter. In a preview clip of her interview with “60 Minutes Australia,” Adele is seen performing the song “When We Were Young” in front of a band and background singers. The singer’s full interview will air on Sunday.

Adele’s new album “25” is her long-awaited follow-up album to her record-breaking “21.” The album is set to release on Nov. 20.

The singer’s “Beats 1” radio show interview will air on Thursday.
