Life as an international superstar isn't always smooth sailing. From industry pressures to constant paparazzi attention, it's no surprise that Adele sometimes needs a celeb pal to listen to her vent. Luckily, she found one in our Certified Lover Boy.

That's right: Adele and Drake are total BFFs. The Easy on Me singer spilled the details on their friendship during a recent interview with CBC Radio's Q show. From professional to personal, Drake's been Adele's go-to guy for quite some time now. In fact, the More Life rapper got a private listening party for 30 a whole year before the record came out - all so that he could share his thoughts and opinions on the highly anticipated album.

Now, if you're like us, you might be asking yourself a lot of questions right now - mainly, how does this friendship even work? Adele and Drake couldn't be more different… They've never featured on each other's tracks, their genres are completely different, so what's the secret to this friendship? Well, Adele summed it up for us and explained why the two of them clicked so well. "We are a dying breed," the 33-year-old singer said, explaining the insane level of popularity that she and Drake both hold. "There was like 10 of us."

According to the 30 artist, she and her BFF both rose in the industry before streaming became what it is today. "We came out before all the social media frenzies of like, "You've got five seconds to entertain; otherwise, get out,'" Adele explained. "We existed in the old school-ness of the industry that we grew up watching and aspiring to [be part of]." But despite all the fame and fortune that Adele's come to know, her friendship with Drake ranks as "one of the biggest gifts," thanks to the constant support and understanding she's felt over the years. "If I try and talk to one of my other friends about it, they'll have no idea what I'm talking about."
