Adele has now officially got the nr.1 and 2 song of my country on the official top 40 :)
(The ones I mentioned earlier)
The is now the 5th week (not all consecutive weeks) "Rolling in the deep" is at the top.
I love it though, I really love her new album so I'm glad to see it being appreciated.

Funfact: They just said on the radio that the last time this happened was in 1979....
When Michael was nr.1 with "The Wiz" cast (didn't even know that went to 1 then) and 2with "Don't stop 'till you get enough".
For some reason that put a big smile on my face.

She's very good. So refreshing to hear something like her when most of today's music is.. what it is..

I've just heard Someone Like You. Amazing!

her 2nd album have been topping charts both us & uk....though her songs in us are not that popular. Kudos to Adele

"I love seeing Lady Gaga's boobs and bum ... I love seeing Katy Perry's boobs and bum. Love it. But that's not what my music is about. I don't make music for eyes. I make music for ears.." ~ Adele....... awesome!!! Win.

worked at a concert of hers last thursday. she has a great voice but some of the songs were abit same ole. the show lasted and hour 30 but i was getting abit bored after a while even though i like her. i guess her style doesnt allow her to be really diverse with the songs she sings.so the songs need to be really standouts which some were. but alot werent

I really like Rolling in the Deep. However, I think that she kind of over-sings through most of her songs, and I just can't listen to her for too long without getting annoyed. Does anyone else think that?

She's definitely talented, though, and she seems like a cool person.

Set fire to the rain, amazing! I'm thinking of buying her album.

Actually Set fire to the rain is the first song where I got annoyed when her voice gets 'rough' for a moment when she sings "but I set fire to the rain, watched it pour as I touched your face". That part annoys me but otherwise the song is gorgeous!

^^I actually like it when she does that in the song lol Gives it some attitude.
I don't think she oversings really. Oversinging to me is more like making overly long complicated notes that aren't needed or things like that. She never seems to do that.
She has a lot of power and volume in her voice though but I think she uses it to convey her emotions in the songs.
I don't mind it at all. To me that's part of her soulfull delivery. But that's just me :)

Btw just wanted to post this video. This is from a show last April. She sings the song beautifully and nearing the end she starts to cry.
So touching to see.

Also she has so far sold 6 million copies of "21" worldwide and is still top 3 (or even 1) in many countries.
I can't believe the succes she is having, just crazy.

I'd like it if she did it few times during the song but every time at that point, it just gets annoying to me. To each their own :)

Thanks for the video, beautiful. :hug:

The stories I've been hearing about her over the past couple months suggest that she has been giving up opportunities to spend time with friends and family. Also heard one suggesting that she was learning a thing or two about tax just as many other British stars have had to learn the hard way how high tax is. I hope those stories aren't true. When you have this kind of success, it's not a good idea to take it for granted. You don't know how long it will last.

My favourite song of hers so far is Rolling in the Deep. They seemed to have stopped playing that one recently.

I can't believe I haven't posted yet, I've recently began to adore Adele, her album 21 is definitely the best I've come across in a while, I'm happy she has got the success she is having at the moment. It's not very usual to see a singer like her these days.

My favourite song of hers is Someone Like You :)

I heard she had to cancel all her shows in the next month or so because of problems with her voice. Hopefully she'll get back soon :)

edit: ok I exaggerated little :p Here's from her site:

"Adele has been forced to cancel the remaining 9 dates of her sold-out North American tour due to ongoing illness. Adele recently postponed 5 shows under doctor’s orders when she was diagnosed with laryngitis. While resting in Los Angeles, Adele met with an Otolaryngology specialist who determined it was imperative that she take the next few weeks to recover with absolute voice rest.
Adele, renowned for her powerful live vocal performances, was intent on resuming her tour on June 4th in San Francisco, CA before learning of her advanced condition.
“I’m really frustrated. I was hoping with a weeks rest I’d be better to sing again straight away. However there is absolutely nothing I can do but take the doctors advice and rest some more. I’m so sorry. See you soon, love Adele”
Plans to reschedule these cancelled tour dates are being investigated; more information will be provided when available."

You won't be disappointed, it's a great album! I would love to see Adele live someday, couldn't make it this time though.

Adele Has The Number One Digital Album Of All Time


This technically happened last Thursday, but according to Nielsen Soundscan, Adele has the number one digital album of all time, selling more than 1.017 million, good enough to crush Eminem's 1.005 million sales of Recovery.

Her sophomore album also has the top spot for the most sales of physical copies with 2.6 million sold.

But Slim Shady still has much to be happy for as his latest album was the number one album sold in 2010 with over four million copies sold in the country and over six million worldwide.
