The Adele reign will just not let up. Aside from her record setting ’21’ album and lead single ‘Rolling In the Deep’, Billboard brings new reports that it’s been a while since they last saw ‘someone like her’.
With Adele‘s leap from No. 19 to No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 this week with “Someone Like You,” the singer achieves the biggest jump to No. 1 in the chart’s 53-year history that wasn’t spurred by the release of a single.Every other larger vault to No. 1 in Hot 100 history came as a result of a single arriving to the market. That includes the chart’s greatest jump, Kelly Clarkson’s 97-1 leap in 2009 with “My Life Would Suck Without You”.
In addition to already having the year’s best selling album with 3.3 million shifted since its release, forecasters have revealed the album is expecting to pass the 4.5 million mark by the year’s end.
