‘Someone Like You’ Makes Billboard History

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’.

Via Billboard:

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.

  20. THE GLOBALLY ICONIC LACEFRONCE RETURNS September 9, 2011

    I have grown tired of hearing about FATdele. This big h** is only a SENSATION like Susan Boyle.

  21. commanderofthedancefloor September 9, 2011

    good job adele, it will be interesting though on what her next album will be like. 21 slays this year and i think that it could win album of the year. also i think that rolling in the deep will atleast be nominated for record and song of the year. i am not completely sure it will win if nominated though.

  22. mobwife September 9, 2011

    Okay enough already with these fake as* achievements. She went from no. 19 to no 1 on the coveted BB Hot 100 and thats a new BB history making moment?!?! WHATEVER PPL this sh*t is getting tiresome!!

    And if this is that God aweful song she sang at the VMAs, ppl must be smoking a cocktail of quaaludes and crack /coz’ that damn song is WACK! She was dressed in black, singing a sad song hell for a minute, I thought it was a funeral! Girl bye…..

  23. TAYLOR SWIFTS NUMBER 1 FAN September 9, 2011

    @Queen Beyonce Stann
    Susan boyle has a new album out in november, which I’m sure will be number 1.

    @mobwife
    how can you call someone like you god awful. It’s one of the best songs in years.

  24. tyra September 9, 2011

    @ que babay why do u always mention beyonce on posts tht ave nothing to do with her u r like a luntic obsessed with her THIS POST IS ABOUT ADELE NOT BEYONCE get it together FOOL

  25. Those That Cannot Do, Stan September 9, 2011

    And folks Sid her other songs wouldn’t be as bug.

    Adele killing everyone’s faces this year.

    Congrats to her. I wish it would make other chicks wise up and realize shaking their ass and spending millions on costumes isn’t reaping as many benefits as it should.

  26. The Naked Truth September 9, 2011

    SLAYDELE!!!!!!!!

  27. L.O.V.E. 21 September 9, 2011

    Lady Gaga must be livid. She thought the number 1 was her’s after the VMA freak show.
    Just goes to show that her gimmicks are wearing thin while genuine talent with no OTT stunts is winning through.

    Anyway …..I think Adele might have killed the gimmick. Or at the very least made it look so ordinary. The fact she has been so successful purely because of her voice and her songs is a great message to upcoming artists who think taking off their clothes is the only way to be noticed.

  28. Que_Baby80 September 9, 2011

    @Tyra Because she’s a 3rd will!!!! And I bring her up because you idiots of a fan base try to compare her ass to every other artist! Thats why fool

  29. HonestlySpeaking (4lopsbiotch) September 9, 2011

    @CHLOE B**** you know if this was your “queen” Beyonce you would have no issue with this amount of success but since it isn’t you feel the need to throw shade. How about you go buy up them copies of 4 currently collecting dust in a bargain bin near you and leave actual talent like Adele alone 😉

  30. Que_Baby80 September 9, 2011

    I bet @mobwife is a Bey stan! 😉

  31. B_STANNING AND LOVING ADELE September 9, 2011

    Grow up yall dont blame ADELE for her success.

  32. Madonnalover September 9, 2011

    Mobwife needs to take some seats. Adeles music is beautiful. Since adele is getting so many achievements people are so mad they have to make negative comments about her even though she didnt do s*** to anyone. Keep making them mad boo.

  33. JAYLA September 9, 2011

    If its not SOME FAST MUSIC FOR THESE SILLY QUEENS TO SHAKE THEIR B*** TOO THEN THEY DON’T WANT TO HEAR IT, I’M SO GLAD THT REAL MUSIC IS DOMINATING THIS YEAR, I SEE A LOT OF PEOPLE ARE UPSET AND TRYING TO BASH, BUT OBVIOUSLY ITS NOT VERY EFFECTIVE, SHE IS STILL RUNNING THE GAME 🙂

  34. tyra September 9, 2011

    no cause u r obssesed with her noone bought her name up but u so it shows she is on ur mind so u r the fool

  35. nice_gurl September 9, 2011

    Congrats Adele. But I still don’t understand how she is breaking all these records, when the music is good, but not the best song ever.

  36. tyra September 9, 2011

  40. Justathought September 9, 2011

    Go head adele…that’s a bad one right there. #applaud

  41. winning September 9, 2011

    Adele is white singing black people music so no big surprise that she is selling… Im bored with her though

  42. THEMAN September 9, 2011

    Adele isn’t why singing black music, she’s singing music that is genuine to her. She has natural soul and a classic sound. The ignorance on this site. I see certain stans are coming out of the woodworks because Adele is just moving mountains with her classic album. Deal with it. You should be excited that a great album is doing so awesome. If it were your favorite you wouldn’t hear a pen drop. Close it. Thats right Aele !!!!!!!!!!!!

  43. whatdamn September 9, 2011

    Yay Adele!!! Gaga is good but she cannot compete with Adele, just can’t..Gaga is already falling in sales again while Adele is still over 100k in the States…The Simpsons, XFactor, and TV show is not going help Gaga..Adele is the biggest music star in the world right now..Gaga is not…

  44. THEMAN September 10, 2011

    Don’t downplay Gaga she is just as huge. She’s doing dayum good…

  45. aisha aguilera keys September 10, 2011

    I don’t understand how this is a feat, but congrats!

  46. JohnVidal September 10, 2011

    Are people who compare Susan Boyle to Adele retarded?????????????
    Adele is an artist who is selling like crazy for a whole year!
    Boyle is a karaoke singer, that just drops an album every Xmas season so all people can give it as a present to their grandparents (no personality, or emotion or… anything)
    People are really silly. Wait and see awards season: is Boyle gonna win anything ? no. Is Adele? She´s gonna slay. Seriously some people are retarded

    ADELE IS SLAYING EVERYBODY AND IM HAPPY SHE SLAYED BEYONCE!!!!!!!!!

  53. Heavy Metal Lover September 11, 2011

    DEAD at the ppl hating on Adele. Someone Like You is the first song in Billboard HISTORY to reach #1 without being a single, so that’s HISTORY. 21 is one of the fastest selling albums of all time, one of the first to top 10 million in WW sales in under 6 months. Adele is most likely gonna sweep the Grammys in 2012. Adele’s music is not Black or White, its just real music and ppl are accepting it and that’s why she’s selling 300-400K WW every week, that’s why Rolling in the Deep and Someone Like You are the two biggest songs of the year, 21 is the Album of the Year and Adele is the new top b**** in the industry and she’s not even 25 yet, she’s only 23. 21 is gonna top 20 million in WW sales by next year because she’s hitting 15 million by the end of the year. And why are ppl coming for Gaga. She’s only had 2 really successful song this era with BTW and TEOG. Judas was hot for like 3 weeks and completely faded away and You and I isn’t doing s*** after months and months and months of performances and 6 weeks on the charts. BTW the album is almost at 5 million WW in 4 months and she’s gonna reach about 7.5 million WW by the end of the year, that’s more than Rihanna, Katy, Ke$ha, Beyonce, Britney have all sold since their albums have been released. Adele is selling due to her voice and Gaga is selling due to her visuals. Remember, this happened 20-25 years ago: Madonna/Janet were all about visuals/effects and Whitney/Mariah were all about their voices. Adele and Lady Gaga are the new Queens of Soul and Pop

    Susan Boyle has talent, she is charming.
