In the hours before her 26th birthday, soul singer Adele posted a picture to her Twitter account hinting at a possible follow up album to 21 later in the year.

According to CBS News, 21 sold over 28 million copies worldwide with popular hits like “Rolling in the Deep,” "Someone Like You,” and “Set Fire to the Rain.” Since the birth of son, Angelo, to boyfriend Simon Konecki, the British singer has remained relatively quiet.
Everything changed when the soon-to-be birthday girl tweeted a photo of herself with the caption, “Bye bye 25… See you again later in the year.”
TIME reports that the sequel album has been rumored for months. Big names featured on the album include OneRepublic’s Ryan Tedder, Wiz Khalifa, and Phil Collins.
Wiz, who first met Adele through wife Amber Rose, recorded a track with her that he described to Fuse as a “cross between [the sounds of] right now and the '60s and '70s. It's really hippie."
He continued, “We still have the record. I just hope that we can put it in the album or maybe we can make something else, too."
Adele’s hit album 21 won her six Grammy Awards, a Golden Globe, and an Oscar.
