Adele’s ‘Rolling in the Deep’ Inspired by ODB’s ‘Brooklyn Zoo

*The producer of Adele’s smash hit “Rolling in the Deep” revealed he was influenced by Ol’ Dirty Bastard’s hit “Brooklyn Zoo” and the White Stripes song “Seven Nation Army.”
Producer Paul Epworth told ”When we were doing ‘Rolling In The Deep’ we wanted the impact and feeling of the track to have a little bit of ‘Seven Nation Army’ by The White Stripes.
”But for the bridges, we were trying to make the piano sound like ‘Brooklyn Zoo’ by Ol’ Dirty Bastard. And when it came to the whole feeling of her vocal relationship to the track, we thought most like Cee Lo Green and Nina Simone.”
