Adele leaves fans in ‘awe’ with Oh My God music video

Adele enthralled fans as she released the music video for Oh My God, the second single of her album 30, on Wednesday.

Steeped with hidden meanings, the black and white video directed by Sam Brown, charters a new era for the songstress as she discovers her life post divorce from husband Simon Konecki, 47.

In perhaps the biggest visualisation of the breakdown of her marriage and her rebirth, a chair is set alight near the end of the song- with eagle-eyed fans noticing how she had sung from a chair in Hometown Glory, Rolling In The Deep and Easy On Me.

Adele, 30, and Sam, who worked with her previously in the Rolling In The Deep music video, drew upon religious undertones to coincide with the title of her single.

Set in a giant warehouse, the Chasing Pavements hitmaker appears to grapple between heaven and hell, with a mirrored reflection showcasing an inner turmoil within herself as apples lay all over the floor to reflect temptation.
