Adele is about to land one of the most lucrative contracts with Sony Music by any British recording artist ever.

While Adele is sending love to her ex’s new lover (via a trippy mind-bending visual), she’s finalizing negotiations with Sony that will secure her future for… ever.

Her reps declined to comment, but a source connected to the music giant confirms the news to The Sun, who describes the ordeal as a “massive” undertaking.

The source claims her original deal with label XL will “expire” and is perfect timing considering they have had an existing relationship with her in the states.

The deal, which has been in the works for several years by her manager Jonathan Dickins, is being handled by their Columbia label in the US.

If signed, Adele gives Sony the rights to release her future music exclusively around the world.

Her new feat edges out the record set by Robbie Williams in 2002 when he struck gold with Sony by landing a $115 million deal. It also makes her the most valuable female recording artist ever after Whitney Houston’s $100,000 contract with Arista in 2001. Michael Jackson will still hold the record when his estate signed a $250 million deal.
