Popular singer Adele recently sent her love to Megan Thee Stallion this holiday season. After rapper Tory Lanez was convicted of shooting Megan Thee Stallion in July 2020 on Friday following a nine-day trial, the “Easy on Me” singer wished her a “very, very merry, merry Christmas” during her Weekends with Adele residency concert in Las Vegas later that night.

Speaking to the crowd during the show, Adele first recalled a viral video of the 27-year-old rapper performing choreography to her 2020 hit “Body,” which was edited to seem like she was dancing to “Water Under the Bridge” from the British Grammy winner’s 2015 album 25.
“Someone said, ‘Why doesn’t Adele have back-up dancers?’ and then someone made a video of ‘Water Under the Bridge’ with Meg Thee Stallion doing the dance to it,” Adele, 34, said onstage, according to a video shared on Twitter. “Remember that?”

She then seemed to reference Lanez’ guilty verdict while expressing support for the Traumazine rapper. “Well today, tonight, I would like to wish Meg Thee Stallion a very, very, merry, merry Christmas,” continued Adele. “Girl, get the peace. Do whatever you want now, baby. I love you.”
The Canadian rapper will be sentenced Jan. 27. The convictions may carry up to 22 years and eight months in prison. As the verdict came down, per the Associated Press, Lanez showed “no visible reaction” and was handcuffed shortly after.
“The jury got it right,” Megan Thee Stallion’s lawyer Alex Spiro told PEOPLE at the time. “I am thankful there is justice for Meg.”
