Adele must be wondering exactly how much positive karma she built up for herself in another life, for today she has received another bountiful blessing from the Pop Culture gods.
As if her record breaking sales for LP ‘21‘ weren’t enough to cement her as this decades reigning album chart Queen, today she received even more news that has seen her change the course of music history.
Find out what she has achieved below…
Her single ‘Someone Like You’ is the first single of the decade to sell 1,000,000 copies in the UK, trumping the efforts of close rival Lady GaGa.
Since the year of 2000, only 16 singles have ever achieved this feat which include GaGa’s ‘PokerFace’ and ‘I Gotta Feeling’ by the Black Eyed Peas.
This new comes just weeks after it was confirmed that her album ’21’ was the first LP to also shift a million units this year and has now sold a total of 2.6 million copies.
This led to her debut album ’19’ shifting a further 800,000 copies this year alone even without a single promotional effort behind it.
With Adele being one of the only artists to maintain a highly perceived artistic credibility whilst enjoying enormous chart success, it is worth wondering if her success is a clear and very harsh response from the public to the seemingly never ending list of talent deficient starlets.
For it is ironic that is the girl who does not fit the aesthetic or even sonic mould of what a Pop star should be, is leaping heaps and bounds above her manufactured competitors who have failed to match her commercial prowess despite all their gimmick ridden efforts.
Here’s to hoping that Adele’s success inspires the emergence of a new generation of artists whose talent lies in their artistic attributes and not their ability to alternate between wigs and lip sync tweaked and polished vocals into unsuspecting microphones.
