Jay-Z and Adele Make Plans for the Future

Hov talks to the UK star about a possible collaboration.

Jay-Z was in England last week to support Beyoncé during her headlining set at the Glastonbury Music Festival, but Bey wasn't the only lady on the hip hop mogul's mind. Jigga reportedly took time out to meet with Adele, the chart-smashing, British blue-eyed soul singer whose sophomore album, 21, is so far the best-selling album of the year.

According to The Sun, Adele charmed Jay over lunch, and the two discussed collaborating musically and professionally.

"She talked him under the table. He was chuckling all the way through their chat," says the UK paper's source.

The 21-year-old "Rolling in the Deep" singer also happens to be a big fan of Mrs. Jay-Z, who paid her a massive compliment earlier this year by saying hearing Adele's voice is "like listening to God." Bey, who performed live from the UK during the 2011 BET Awards, invited Adele to sing with her during the Glastonbury set, but the young artist had to decline due to an unfortunate bout of laryngitis.

Though she isn't doing any singing now, Adele has rescheduled her US tour for August.
