Adele Breaks Records In The UK

Published: Monday 11th Apr 2011 by Trent

Susan Boyle isn’t the only British singer who has been conquering charts around the world in recent months. R&B/Soul singer Adele has now accomplished what no other artist has ever done.

Adele’s ’21’ album has scored a record-breaking 11th consecutive week at the #1 spot on the UK Albums Chart. This feat shatters the previous 10-week runs of The Beatles and Madonna.

To date, ’21’ has been certified a remarkable 7x platinum in the UK with sales exceeding 1.87 million copies. The album is already the best-selling project of the year thus far in the US (selling over 940k to date) and is close to the 4 million mark worldwide in less than 9 weeks. Celebrate true talent!

    4 million in just 2 months, well damn. Go on Miss Adele, and hasn’t she only released 2 singles, so I wonder how much she will sell after 2 or 3 more singles are released. I bet 21 sells well over 7.5 million WW. Adele is sweeping the Grammys as well.

  2. Bluenails April 11, 2011

    Yes! I’ve been a true Adele fan since her 19 album…both stay on repeat…congratulations!

  6. CA April 11, 2011

    There is no way Lady GaGa will be able to match this

    She’ll be close to 4.5 million album sales behind

    Album of the Year is Adele’s.

  7. luvey April 11, 2011

  8. Cheri April 11, 2011

    4 million WW?? Well hell, get off of you girl! Congrats! ’21’ is a masterpiece of its own!

  10. scorpio April 11, 2011

    Great for her!

  11. LSZ April 11, 2011

    Adele will outsell Lady Gaga, Beyonce, Britney Spears (obviously) and she has already outsold Rihanna. I PERSONALLY think she will eventually reach 10 million units, Amy Winehouse did it.

  12. the kiddz April 11, 2011

    This is amazing news! Adele has really blossomed into an oustanding artist, not that she wasn’t during the 19 era.

  13. Poisonous April 11, 2011

    Talent reigns.. *bows*

  14. CBill April 11, 2011

    It is indeed wonderful to see true talent coming to the fore, and Adele is TALENT!

    As I’m also a Susan Boyle Fan, and since you mention her, I’m happy to say Susan remains the only person ever to sell over one million a week for six weeks in a row, worldwide, and over half a million a week in the USA for 5 weeks in a row.

  15. THE UNDISPUTED QUEEN OF POP April 11, 2011

    YESSSSSS! CONGRATS ADELE! Im so happy this is happening to her, she is definitely talentive and can sing her ass off. Im really glad its happening to someone with talent.

    My friends told me about ———- Lo ve Wealt hy* C0- M ——– told It’s the be’st pl’ace to me’et Milli’onaire si’ngles.

    It is the first and best club for wealthy people and their admirers. D’ating CEOs, professional athletes, doctors, lawyers, entrepreneurs, professional models and cheerleaders, and even Hollywood celebrities is an easy experience there…

    you don’t have to be rich ,but you can meet one there.
    nice experience! @@@@

  17. Steffon April 11, 2011

  18. KAT DELUNA FAN April 11, 2011

  19. JohnVidal April 11, 2011

    @THE UNDISPUTED QUEEN OF POP
    Just for curiosity: who is that queen of pop of yours? Your comments are being great today

  20. Robier April 11, 2011

    Yessssssssssssssssssssss

  21. genes April 11, 2011

    well deserved babe… Show them how to do it

  22. james April 11, 2011

    I wouldn’t be surprised did over 10 million WW, because the way Adele is selling over in Europe is just beyond crazy and she’s close to 1 million in the U.S. with only 1 single over here, once Someone Like You is officially released in the U.S., I’m pretty sure her U.S. sales will skyrocket. I’m sure that 21 will go at least 2x Platinum in the U.S., but at the most 3x Platinum

  23. KeepItReal11 April 11, 2011

    So glad to finally see numbers like this a again! Folks now this is what you all album sells! She is f****** amazing with her vocals, I love Don’t You remember. I SMOKE A PHAT ASS BLUNT AN CRY TO THAT SONG!! Your so called faves are not doing these numbers in 2011! People want quality for once, and we can’t any longer accept just anything!! Again people talent is on it’s way back!!

    #she kills the evil auto tune demons!!

    Gooooooooooooooo!!!! Adele!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  24. James April 11, 2011

    I’M SO HAPPY TO SEE ALL THIS POSITIVE FEEDBACK FOR ADELE… Minus the comparisons, this is the 1st time the comments have made me SMILE 🙂

  43. pau April 11, 2011

  44. the kiddz April 11, 2011

    @Dion-Ish

    Yes, talent has always been in the industry, you just need to look. I don’t know why everyone is acting like Adele has broke the mold, it’s just that her sales are actually justified. And what do mean Amy is back, does she have an album coming out soon? Please, tell me yes! Lol!

  45. Blanco Family April 11, 2011

    WOW she broke records! yet japan is still in ruins! there are still starving kids in africa. WHO GIVES A F*** IF ADELE BROKE RECORDS just make music for the love of it.

  46. i’m a billy goat…..ssss&mmm yeeha!! April 11, 2011

    @DION_ISH

    You have the market cornered on sounding stupid! I have enjoyed Adele from the 1st (I heard of her) and have both 19 & 21 along with Graffiti and F.A.M.E. on heavy rotation! Not really sure why you felt compelled to say a f****** word to me but b**** move on!

    I REPEAT, THANK GOD TALENT, NOT STUDIO CREATIONS AND MEDIA PROPS BUT, ACTUAL TALENT HAS RETURNED TO THE MUSIC INDUSTRY!

    “Talent has always been in the music industry”….LMAO, Really? I can’t tell!

    P.S., I’ll leave the bandwagon hopping to folks like you!

  47. parisian girl April 11, 2011

    MY QUEEN!!!
    She deserves this success so much!
    I’m so proud!

  48. Bia April 11, 2011

    .I.

  49. True Blue April 11, 2011

    F*** YES!!! I’m proud of my girl! She just keeps slaying and slaying. About time that quality music got rewarded properly. Chicks like her and Florence experiencing mainstream success give me a renewed hope in the industry. I knew this decade would be a turnaround from the last.

    @ Dion-ish:

    Amy got a new album?

  50. S*** April 11, 2011

You really think they can keep doing the same s***, over, and over again, and the public is going to stand there and be like, ok this is hot??? F*** no! People have been saying that music has sucked for to long! Enough of the b******* please! I want to TURN UP THE SPEAKERs IN MY 1979 Oldsmobile Cutlass Salon an blast the f*** out of a good tune! Not the gay kid s***!! Enjoy these whores while they still have a few miles of gas left in them, because the day has arrived for the shitty music to die!! Again Go Adele!!!

    ******************************

    1st of all, again I’m not really sure why you felt compelled to comment on my statement? For me, it holds true regardless of what you may believe!

    2nd, I don’t need the crowd as you seem to, in order to express my thoughts concerning the oversaturation of MARIGNAL TALENT within the music industry! Yes, in the “beginning” artists had to actually sing or dance or write lyrics or play musical instruments etc. in order to gain entrance into the music industry. That does not appear to be the case in todays music scene. My position has not changed!

    3rd, I mentioned 4 CD’s that are play interchangeably on my “stereo” as you made some crazy statement about me being a person who has just jumped on the “good music” bandwagon. I listen to those 4 CD’s all of the time! For the record, I never mentioned “his” name you did! And yes, there are tones of artists – R&B, Jazz, Indie etc -that the mainstream media will never give consideration! This is nothing new and will not change anytime soon as the corporate owned music industry becomes more and more circular and therefore limited!

    As far as my inital intentions, I’ve stated them clearly! CONGRATULATIONS ADELE, THANK GOD ACTUAL TALENT IS RETURNING TO THE MUSIC INDUSTRY! I ONLY PRAY THAT THIS IS ONLY THE BEGINNING! Bye now…Mwah!!

  62. Anthony Raymond April 13, 2011

    I am pleased for a down to earth young woman doing well. She has an amazing rich texture to her voice, she can play most instruments and writes her own songs (or co-writes). Her ‘baps stay in the bread bin’ and she is modest and real. 19 was inspiring and compelling but 21 is mostly flawless save for a bossa nova version of the Cure’s Lovesong (which is growing on me) What I cannot work out is why ‘someone like you’ did only climb to number 65 in the Billboard hot 100? has it got an official release there? Will it be released there? Anyway good to see British Artist doing well in the USA. The Brits add depth to shallow artists like Keshia et al ….not sure if they know who Kate Bush is which is shocking xx peace
