Adele is back, and in full color. Six years after her last release, the UK native dropped "Easy On Me," the first track from her upcoming November album, 30, leaving her legions of fans in hysterics. You know, the kind of hysterics that you welcome. The kind of emotional release that can only induced by a good, heartbreaking Adele vocal run.

Though Adele's "Easy On Me" is the first track from an album she calls her most personal to date, the music video feels like a love letter to fans, with viewers clocking similarities with past visual treatments for singles "Hello" and "Rolling in the Deep." And with over 23 million views and nearly two million likes on YouTube—keep in mind this just came out—the verdict seems to be that fans are pretty damn pleased with this new era of Adele.

Of course, in 2021, have you experienced anything if you don't go online and share how it made you feel? If you don't find the perfect memes and screen grabs that say exactly what your emotionally vocabulary heart can't? I think not. Here are social media's best reactions to Adele's "Easy On Me."

(That's hardly the only throwback to past Adele work.)

And then there's the deeply emotional kids in class.

Of course, to finish, some good ol' fashioned tomfoolery.

Doncaster, calm down.

Adele's 30 will drop officially on November 19, right before the holiday season moves into full gear, so please, if you see me crying in the streets, take it easy on me, too.
