For two years, Adele has kept her new album under tight wraps.
The fiercely private singer had carefully planned a simultaneous worldwide launch of her new album, 25, on Friday.
In fact, Adele had said the only person she had played the masterpiece to in full was her manager, Jonathan Dickins.
But just days before the scheduled launch, her entire album was reportedly leaked online.
London-based store Juno Records apparently posted two-minute snippets of every song on the album on their website, UK tabloid The Sun reports.
Watch Adele’s the film clip to Adele’s emotional (and crazy popular) ballad, Hello:
The content was removed after media reported the breach.
There were also suggestions the album was leaked out of Target in the US.
A Twitter user posted a picture of the cover, asking if followers wanted her to leak the album.
Unsurprisingly, Adele’s camp threatened to sue her, telling her: “Please remove any infringing material from any media source or legal action will be taken.”
