If Britany Spears, Selena Gomez, Rihanna and Taylor Swift are the gems of the music industry, Adele is the Kohinoor. That’s because she is barely out there (on social media promoting herself) yet, she is everywhere! The 27-year-old Londoner has gone farther beyond anyone when it comes to fast fame; her only weapon is her voice, but Adele is a much more vibrant person than you imagine.
Since Adele made a fantastic comeback saying “Hello” to the world, her album 25 has become on of the fastest growing hit, crowning the song as No. 1 on the iTunes top charts. She has done, as you are a witness, exactly nothing to promote her album but still has managed to break all the previous records as her album passively goes viral. Her charismatic personality and magical voice truly deserve all the adulation.
Adele’s new album “25” (some people may not know, but all her albums correlate to her age at which she wrote these songs) hit the stores on 20th of November and sold at least 3.2 million copies during the first week in the US. This broke 15-year-old opening week sales record of “No Strings Attached” (2000). If you still must compare, only 20 albums have sold over a million copies since 1991, with Adele on the top.
Adele also ruled her home country, Britain, where according to the Official Charts Company there, more than 800K albums were sold. The numbers may not have touched a million’s milestone, they have successfully transgressed the last record set in 1997 by Oasis, which sold 696,000 copies of “Be Here Now.” So it is needless to say, that Adele’s “Hello” is a bad news of musical records.
As mentioned aforetime, Adele does not like to be in the spotlight, not at least for promotions, but she does care about her fans and that’s why following the upheaval of her new music video “Hello,” she has made appearances in many TV shows like SNL, Today show and Adele look-alike auditions as well(below). The latest, Adele announced to go on a tour in the spring, which will be a first in five years and fans are impatiently looking forward to the ride.
Apart from “Hello, It’s me,” other songs of Adele’s “25” also bear the confessional tone of her inner feelings, which is characteristic of every song ever voiced by Adele. Although, Brittany Spears, Lady Gaga, and Taylor Swift have also recently released her albums, but they were nowhere near close to stirring the cords like Adele’s songs, which bring the feelings back to home.
Analysts estimate that Adele’s 25 to sell at least five million copies in the United States by the end of the year, which will again break a 4-year record. Adele’s previous album, “21,” sold approximately 30 million copies around the world. Based on the fact that “Hello” by Adele has been watched over 522M times on the YouTube in just a little over than a month since the video was uploaded, the album is expected to go nuclear on the sales sheet. Let’s hear it one more time from Adele!
