London: Adele may be too far from creating hip hop music, but the Oscar-winning singer is surely a fan of the genre.

The 27-year-old songtress, whose latest single "Hello" is topping the charts, is in love with the video of Macklemore and Ryan Lewis' new track "Downtown", reported Female First.

"The dancing! The marching! The mopeds! The chariots! You have to give it to that video - how ridiculous it is. It played a lot with hip hop culture - and I love hip hop culture, I love the bigness, the grandness, the showing-off-ness of it, I appreciate it and I revel in it," she said.

The "Rolling In The Deep" hitmaker said she was "in tears" while watching the clip for the song because it was so funny.

"There's something about these guys mocking the extravagance of (the culture) that I really responded to. It really made me laugh - I was in tears watching it," she said. However, her all time favourite video is the one made for electronic musician James Blake's cover of Joni Mitchell's song "Case Of You".

"My favourite video of all time is actually for James Blake's 'A Case Of You', the one that has Rebecca Hall in it - I can't watch it without my entire body shaking."
