Hurricane Adele: ‘Hello’ Eyes 1 Million US Sales In First Week / SNL Performance Confirmed

Published: Monday 26th Oct 2015 by Sam

In an era where the word “slay” is being used with alarming flippancy, Adele is helping to redefine.

The singer’s new single ‘Hello’ was hatched less than four days ago, but is already bulldozing everything in sight.

Details below…

Per a new report, the track – which was written by the belter and Greg Kurstin – in on course for a blockbuster debut on the Billboard Hot 100.

Powered by over 70 million VEVO views (27 million of which were amassed in its first 24 hours of availability), ‘Hello’ has sold 750,000 copies in the US thus far – a figure which places it in a plausible position to reach the 1 million mark Stateside by the end of the tracking week.

As the success of ’21’ proved, Adele is the kind of winner who quite literally takes it all. Hence, it’s little surprise to see that the mania surrounding ‘Hello’ has carried over onto its housing album ’25.’

Hits Daily Double relays that the LP (due November 20th) has racked up 200,000 American pre-orders in just three days. A figure many albums struggle to sell in total these days.

In other Ms. Adkins news, it has been confirmed that she will be taking to the stage on the November 21st edition of Saturday Night Live. Matthew McConaughey hosts.

      • OMG Logic!!! October 26, 2015

        It’s funny because it’s true. LMAO!!

    • RihYonce October 26, 2015

      Pretty sure if Bey vanished for 4 years her single would do the same, you see she only went 2 years without releasing music and came back and had the fastest selling album in iTunes history

      • Memo October 26, 2015

        The delusion. She will never reach Adele’s sales.

      • OMG Logic!!! October 26, 2015

        Not everyone is interested in stripper music. Thighyonce also doesn’t make relatable music. Only th0ts sing about being c ummed on.

      • EPIC October 26, 2015

        Botch, don’t you Stan for Belugariah. Instead of worrying about Bey, worry about your washed up fav’s missing vocals, and excess high blood pressure weight.

    • Lea October 27, 2015

      Yet they call her Queen for some odd reason. I will never understand that…

  3. Rima October 26, 2015

    When will beyonce? 20 years in music and still getting slayed by the likes of artist with 10 years or less in the game.

    • RihYonce October 26, 2015

      Y’all gonna stop comparing a legend to these it girls , we’ll see where all these other girls are 20 years in there carriers pretty sure they’ll go stale like some of them already have

      • JANETS1814 October 26, 2015

        Sorry, Beyonce will NEVER, I reapeat, NEVER reach Adele’s status. She’s slaying fully clothed. #TakeNoteThot

  4. Like a prayer October 26, 2015

    I thought Rihanna was the digital song queen

  5. Rima October 26, 2015

    Beyonce can’t sell 1 million of anything first week.

    • Eboni October 26, 2015

      But Born This Gay only sold 1 million first week thanks to it being discounted to 99 cents but it flopped world wide and barely sold 2 million in total. Is artFlop even platinum?

      • Rima October 26, 2015

        It still sold a million first week regardless. When was the last time Cumyoncé did that?

        Artpop still did 2.7 WW which is amazing.

      • Eboni October 26, 2015

        That’s cute. Beyonce did 5. Even 4 did 3 million world wide. Gags is out here clinging to geriatrics for relevancy. Don’t come for the queen when you Stan for a has been

      • HailBeysus October 26, 2015

        Not you coming for the Queen when her last album outsold artpop and cheek to cheek combined LOL!!! Also lol at you calling Bey cumyonce when your fav wanted to literally create and spout herself with a cumand blood scented perfume LMFAO!!! Stop just stop please hahaha

    • Jake October 26, 2015

      But wait Beyoncé last album just sold 1 million in 7 days ? Lol at you saying ” Artpop still did 2.7 WW which is amazing ” jut come for Beyoncé that did double! Haters

      • Christian October 26, 2015

        No it did 600k in the US in a week and 800k world wide in that same week. Stop embellishing

      • Eboni October 26, 2015

        Lies. It sold 617K in three days (Friday -Monday) and 1 million after a week!

      • Tyler Makiavelli October 26, 2015

        Do your f****** research!

      • King Mark111 /.\ October 26, 2015

        600K in the Us and it didn’t hit a million WW till the 3rd week. Sit.

      • King Mark111 /.\ October 26, 2015

        *9th day*

  6. truthtea October 26, 2015

  8. shakira stan October 26, 2015

    • King Mark111 /.\ October 26, 2015

      Yep and nope. POoor Drake.

  9. HailBeysus October 26, 2015

    Lmao at these peasants feeling brave all of a sudden on an Adele post coming for the QUEEN!!! Where were these comments in the last few post about Bey!?!?!? Y’all will ride along with any artist that’s hot at the moment to try and shade the QUEEN!!! HAHAHAHA!!! PITIFUL!!!!!

    • RihYonce October 26, 2015

      Exactly lol it’s sad & it’s sickening , they will all come back when B6 Era begins, they did the same thing in 2011 but we know where they were on 12/13/13

    • OMG Logic!!! October 26, 2015

      The Queen of what? Thighs, strippers, and money shots? Because that hoeux certainly isn’t the Queen of any music genre.

  10. Rima October 26, 2015

    The hive should be embarrassed how dare you call Fleayonce Queen when everybody and their mother slays her in terms of sales and hits this decade.

    • Eboni October 26, 2015

      You Stan for Gags though and she ain’t selling more than Bey

    • RihYonce October 26, 2015

      Sales? Lmao last time I checked Beyoncé had the highest saling female album of 2013 and it came out in December on 2 weeks left in the year ! Outselling Gaga, Katy, & Miley. Come with facts

  11. No favs, just here for the music October 26, 2015

    No surprise. ‘Hello’ is amazing

    And also…this is Adele afterall lol

  12. DIABETES UNBOTHERRED October 26, 2015

    Idk why adele is being compared to bey. One white one black… one fat one s***.. one r&b hiphop one adult country pop.. one 18 years in the game rising icon… one still very new. Adele has along way to go b4 she sales 75 mill albums 9 #1s 200 million records 20+ flop 5 hits 20 grammys and half billion in tour gross 400 million net worth but I’m sleepy

    • OMG Logic!!! October 26, 2015

      #DEATH!!!!!!!!!!! Thighyonce has NO WHERE near 75 million album sales. Omg your high blood pressure is affecting your brain girl. Destiny’s Child sales DO NOT count as hers. As for Grammy’s Adele’s already got 10. As in half as many as Thighyonce in less than half the time it’s taken her to get hers. Adele is on track to QUICKLY surpassing that glorified stripper.

    • Lea October 27, 2015

      Rotfl!!!Guh where you get those numbers from?

  13. DIABETES UNBOTHERRED October 26, 2015

    HELLO >>>> ROLLING IN THE FLOP. Imml ol this is after a 4 year break b/w albums. I expected no less. Adele even looks better how!! I bey she sales 1.5 mill to 2 mill just is alone first week. I bet. Rih team wish they waited a whole nother year to release. Antiprispirant and its 20 singles & snippets. #snippetanna

  14. Eboni October 26, 2015

    Continue to cling to Adele when none of your favs are outselling or outgrossing King Bey except Taylor. Y’all sum try hards

    • Memo October 26, 2015

      If Beyoncé is the so-called ‘King Bey,’ ‘Hottest artist of the world.’ and that s***. Why isn’t that reflected on sales? Answer that question first before deflecting to talking about Beyoncé being ”better” than others.

      • HailBeysus October 26, 2015

        Beyonce is called Queen because she has managed longevity for almost 20yrs. She has 5 MEGA #1 singles that tally her total weeks at the top of billboard at 36wks. Compare that to Rihanna’s 56weeks (13 #1s) and Mariah Carey’s 79week’s (18 #1s) that’s a darn good number to have and you can’t deny it! She is highly regarded as the best entertainer of her generation and widely regarded as possibly being the best live performer of today! She has broken and set numerous records! She has inspired many young artist of today yet still gives them a run for their money! What other female pop artist is out selling her in Tour Sales today??? She has managed to sell over 150 million records, has won 20 grammys and earned the respect of her peers and predecessors before her. She has grossed over half in billion in tour revenue. Lets not also forget she was apart of one of the biggest selling girl groups of all time!! Beyonce has earned her place and then some. She Is the whole package and the haters know it, which is why they continuously try to drag her down. She has accomplished all this with just 5 albums and in just 13 year’s as a solo act.

    • OMG Logic!!! October 26, 2015

      Some of us have been here for Adele since 2008 and got our life when she took the Best New Artist Grammy over the generic boy band of the moment (Joe Bros then, currently 1 Direction), so b1tch please.

  15. #JACKIE October 26, 2015

    I’m so tired of hearing about her!!!!

    • Unbiased Swiftie October 26, 2015

      Sis, I’m sure the general public is TIRED of watching Ciara Stallone continuously release music that she should know nobody will purchase! #OOPS.

      • OMG Logic!!! October 26, 2015

        The general public doesn’t know Ciara exists though…

      • r October 27, 2015

        Yea. but she a beast on stage she the shade is actually on the haters.

  16. RihYonce October 26, 2015

    I can’t wait to see her perform this song live, “hello” slays my life I listen to it everyday , Adele came & snatched my life lol “hello” is definetly my favorite song from her now

  17. WE FOUND RIHANNA October 26, 2015

    Bey ain’t never do this! we Fond Love sold 1M copies 1st week. When will Taylor?

    • RihYonce October 26, 2015

      Still stuck in 2011 huh? What about all the flip singles she released this year & where is ANTi?

    • DIABETES UNBOTHERRED October 26, 2015

      Lmao the desperation. When has FATanna ever sold 200k albums in the us first day (like b’day) or nearly 1 million first week (self titled) in the u.s. bey def broke way more records than FATanna… adele has already.Dil was first album to go #1 and single #1 in US. And Uk … that’s a fourway #1 strike. When will WHALEanna?

    • #JACKIE October 26, 2015


  18. shakira stan October 26, 2015

    I wanted drake to be one so bad …is there any chance for him now?

  19. shakira stan October 26, 2015

    I wanted drake to be one so bad …is there any chance for him now? All it takes is for an overrated obese lady to show up and snatch another brother .

    • #JACKIE October 26, 2015

      Shakira damn sure ain’t doing it sis.

  20. coolness October 26, 2015

    B*TCH, she’s about to scalp, lmao! Good for her but why in the world are people bringing up Beyonce??? Just goes to show how people will bandwagon just about anything to discredit her. She and Adele are in two VERY different lanes (Bey is clocking almost 20 year in the industry!) as far as music is concerned but the one thing they do share is innate musical talent.

    SN: I was hoping Drake would nab his fist #1 with Hotline Bling but I don’t think it’ll happen anytime soon. For starters, The Weeknd released additional remixes of The Hills and now Hurricane Adele is fast appraching. Oh well, there’s always next time.

  21. MsYonce October 26, 2015

    Slay Adele

  22. MsYonce October 26, 2015

    “We found love sold 1 million first week” lmaoooo stooppp the lies plzzz

    • Tyler Makiavelli October 26, 2015

      SCREAMS! I should report their dumb ass for even saying that bwahaha

  23. Unbiased Swiftie October 26, 2015


    Look at the Flea Hive seething!!!

    BeyTHIEFce will never, ever do Adele’s numbers – “21”, alone, outsold her entire album sales catalogue worldwide and practically four-fifths of her domestic (U.S.A) album sales catalogue. BeyTHIEFce won’t even ever do QUEEN TAYLORS numbers either.

    Furthermore, beyTHEIFce can’t even do Alicia Keys sales and she debuted around the same time. KIIIIIIII.

    • Tyler Makiavelli October 26, 2015

      And neither will Rihanna. So you can stop fronting because we all know thats who you really stan for.

  24. Tyler Makiavelli October 26, 2015

    What does Beyonce have to do with anything?
    Rihanna’s the one who chose a November release date.
    When will Anti?????

  25. October 26, 2015

    i know Adele is good, but i wasn’t a fan like that. but i really love this Hello song.

  26. Courtney October 26, 2015

    it’s all about timing in the Music business Adele’s last two songs from 21 were released as singles November 5th 2011 so it’s been nearly 4 years since she’s released a single from an Album and 21 is nearly 5 years old and will likely be back in the top 20 next week from hype surrounding 25

  27. Bee October 26, 2015

    She’s going to break Britney’s for first week album sales by a female artists

  28. killian October 26, 2015

    Its real tiring all these Beyonce haters here I can’t really…why does Beyonce get dragged in everything Herr it just affirms she’s the queen standard… Adele is wonderful and makes albums she will always sell more albums than bey ..but she can’t ever gross more or worth more because she’s the whole package and not relegated to just one aspect of music

  29. Tyler Makiavelli October 26, 2015

    “Bey ain’t never do this! we Fond Love sold 1M copies 1st week. When will Taylor?”

    B**** where????

  30. Tyler Makiavelli October 26, 2015

    Gaga isnt a has been, but more like a NEVER WAS.
    Her buzz didnt even last a whole 5 years….

  31. Benjamin October 26, 2015

    Beyonce is the QUEEN because she’s the WHOLE PACKAGE, and you all know that, so stop with the bulls**t.

  32. whenindoubtthetruthwillout October 26, 2015


    Hello is number one on iTunes in 102 countries.

    25 is number one in 93 countries just on pre-orders alone.

    When has Beyonce had numbers like this???

    • HailBeysus October 26, 2015

      Beyonce’s been there done that! Her last album went #1 in 106 COUNTRIES!!! So bye Felicia!

  33. BEY>RIH October 26, 2015

    Slay fat b****!! What im trying to figure out is where in this post did they mention Beyoncé. She literally gets compared to everyone and it just show you b****** she is the standard…. When will Ri*****?

    • Lambily October 26, 2015

      Sorry are you blind or just plain stupid she does not look fat. Do you even know the meaning get of fat? Sit your ass down you stupid bottom fàggot rather worry about having a huge penis penetrate your rectal cavity

  34. King Mark111 /.\ October 26, 2015

    Poor Beyonce, #2 on Sony. Some queen with no power or broken records. lol

    • Lover of music October 26, 2015

      I love how you like to bring Beyonce’s name in every post that has nothing to do with her and yet you cry like a little ph@ggot you are when they do the same with Rihanna.

  35. .::Centurion::. October 27, 2015

    I don’t know why Beyonce’s rats are having a meltdown. She’ll never do Adele numbers. Her records are mediocre for some called ‘Queen’. Adele slays her just by breathing and fully-clothed. Adele has a sense of humor and a personality as well, things that Beyonce the glorified çūm guzzelling stripper lacks. 🙁

    • Truth October 27, 2015

      As someone who is stupid enough to be a Rihanna fan, you are in no position to judge another acts moral character, just like you aren’t in any position to judge talent…seeing as how that label-created tramp you stan for has neither. I understand, though. Adele has you, and the rest of the idiots who for whatever reaso like Rihanna, shook. Thanks to ’25,’ you KNOW you’re not getting an album any time soon. The only way you can reconcile this comedy is to bring up Beyonce to divert your attention away from Adele would make that ass whopping Chris laid on Rihanna look like mosquito bite if she even dared to release that troubled album within 6 months of hers.

  36. Absolved October 27, 2015

    Look at the scared navy trying to name-drop Beyonce to take attention away from the trouble Rihanna is in. Beyonce doesn’t have anything slated for this quarter, so bringing her up is just a punk move by a bunch of weakling b******. Rihanna has been working on her joke album for over a year. Delay after delay, push back after push back, failed first single after failed first single — they FINALLY decide to put her destined-to-flop album on the schedule; revealing both a stupid title and stupid album cover and then *this* happens! ROFLMAO! Wherever Beyonce is, she’s not thinking about Adele. But Rihanna, Roc Nation and the Navy sure are! 😛 Anti- just got pushed back another year. Riri can talk tough on Instagram and Twitter, but that frog voiced twerp wouldn’t have the forehead to face Adele (the same Adele who openly stans for Beyonce) with a bullet proof vest.
