Music video[change | change source]

No proper music video was shot for "Set Fire to the Rain" {as well as other singles from 21, "Rumor Has It" and "Turning Tables") as Adele had recently undergone vocal surgery.[source?] Instead, a live performance video was uploaded to her Vevo account and has received more than 380 million views as of October 2017.
