Hook queen Skylar Grey has been making a name for herself in the hip-hop music scene these days, but she's not the only songbird making noise.

Twenty-two-year-old, British-born soul singer Adele emerged as “the next Amy Winehouse” according to the U.K. press in 2007, and released her debut album, 19, in 2008. Now, with the release of her sophomore album, 21, topping the Billboard 200 chart for over ten consecutive weeks, hip-hop is taking notice and begging her for more.

With four artists – Trae Tha Truth, Tyga, Big Sean and Big K.R.I.T. – recently sampling her singles “Hometown Glory” and “Someone Like You,” XXL has taken note and reached out to readers on Twitter, asking the question: What do you think makes Adele so attractive to hip-hop right now? Here's a round-up of what Tweeters had to say.—Amber McKynzie
