The Slayage: Adele Breaks Taylor Swift’s VEVO Record With ‘Hello’

Adele‘s comeback track ‘Hello’ is creating carnage for the competition.

Released just one day ago, the haunting hymn has already broken a record held by fellow chart chart-titan Taylor Swift.

Find out what it is below…

Prior to the ’25’ single’s arrival, Swift’s ‘Bad Blood’ held the honor of most VEVO views accumulated in 24 hours. The star-studded clip amassed a whopping 20.1 million plays within a tracked day.

In what is sure to become common-practice, though, Adele shattered that figure by clocking up 23.2 million watches of the Xavier Dolan directed visual since yesterday’s premiere.

The actual annihilation, though. Most titillating, though, is the reality that it’s only just begun!

’25’ hits retail on November 20th.

    That’s nice. Hopefully I will hear a variety of musical offerings on 25. While I enjoy her nostalgic vocals and music I’d like to see her play around with her voice and music a bit more. I’m not saying go totally left field, but just something a tad different. Btw we know she’s gonna slay everybody there’s no need to keep repeating it. Everyone isn’t mean to be a massive mega seller and has their own place in the industry.

    • Laqoyah October 24, 2015

      BREAKING: Taylor Swift is reportedly falling on the floor harder than Greece’s economy !

      • ….. October 24, 2015

        Taylor, Gaga, Miley, Ariana, Nicki, Bey, Rihanna, Christina, Mariah who???

        😆

      • Hahaha October 24, 2015

        rihanna could neva…

    • Hail To The Voice October 24, 2015

      Beyonce and Mariah’s stans should be ashamed. This woman just sings (without have to sell s**) but she delivers.

      • Huhuhu October 24, 2015

        That Barbadian wh*re could never achieve something amazing like this…

      • Boy October 24, 2015

        I don’t think that Mariah and Adele are on the same ball game. Yes she is massive and talented. But we should stop pretending what kind of catalog and talent Mariah posses. Mariah has showed the world what she can offer. Now it’s Adele’s and somewhat Beyoncé’s time to proof them self. It’s really not necessary to be inadequate to a person that has already showed the world what they have to offer. Just let her be.

      • OMG Logic!!! October 24, 2015

        Adele reveres Mariah. Don’t badmouth her like she’s just some random singer like Thighyonce.

      • Meteorite October 24, 2015

        @Boy
        I agree with you, you can’t compare Adele to Mariah. Mariah’s career is filled with “Been There Done That” moments, no more to say really.
        And to @….. Says
        The same can be said about Christina’s career. While she may not have had the success of Mariah or Britney, artistically she has proven that she can do anything.

    • Sweaterz October 25, 2015

      Adele, Madonna, Mariah, Whitney, Celine Dion & Britney Spears have diamond albums.
      When will Beyonce, Taylor Swift, Rihanna, Miley and Katy Perry?
      LOL

      • Dvokals October 25, 2015

        Uhm Crazy in Love went DIAMOND!!

      • Sweaterz October 25, 2015

        Single you mean?
        LOL we’re talking about album.
        go check on official sources.
        No Beyonce on Diamond list 😀

  2. truthtea October 24, 2015

    Adele’s too hot, hot damn! Call the police and the fireman!

    I’m sure Taylor and her people are fuming from their ears right now!!!

  3. RihannaIsMadonna October 24, 2015

    OMG!!! Real talent is snatching weaves for the 1st time in awhile, Taylor Swift is annoying AF

  4. It’s Barbie B**** October 24, 2015

    Yazzz mother, slay them all!

  5. HailBeysus October 24, 2015

    YAAASSSSS!!!! IM I OVERWHELMED WITH EXCITEMENT FOR HER!!!! SHE HAS COME SUCH A LONG WAY FROM THE SHY BRITISH GIRL I WATCHED PERFORM IN 08 AT THE HOTEL CAFE IN LOS ANGELES!!! YOU SEEMED SO NERVOUS THAT NIGHT. NOW YOU’RE A SHINNING STAR IN YOUR OWN RIGHT!! THANK YOU FOR ALL THE AMAZING YOU GAVE US AND WILL CONTINUE TO GIVE US.

    • HailBeysus October 24, 2015

      Oops ment today AMAZING MUSIC SHE GIVES US!!! Lol

  6. blue October 24, 2015

    all this is just goes to show to the impact of ’21’, will wait till january to see how 25 really performs… But im happy she broke that record the bad blood was not a music video at all.

    • HailBeysus October 24, 2015

      The album is overwhelmingly performng well. Its currently #1 in 90 COUNTRIES! Thats pre-order sales only. She will sell no less than 10 million worldwide. As for 21 numbers yes we will have to wait and see.

      • blue October 24, 2015

        what i meant was that currently everything thing this era is achieving is based off the hype created by the success of 21 and not really on how good Hello is. This album will be frontloaded for several weeks, its when people start hearing the songs on the radio and get to judge them separate from the hype that we see the true sales vs quality figures.

  7. Fancy BISH October 24, 2015

    SLAYDELE! Even Miss Taylor ain’t safe out here chile…Hurricane Adele is hitting November 20th, but we are already feeling the effects! Homegirl is snatching all wigs, weaves, braids and hair extensions…she already bought up all the Super Lace Glue supply from the store shelves…hide your faves lol 🙂

    • Lmfao_Hoe October 24, 2015

      ” she already bought up all the Super Lace Glue supply from the store shelves…hide your faves lol ” ctfu !!

  8. blue October 24, 2015

    before the navy and beyhive rush in here to flood the comment section with their ancient mating ritual, just wanna say that SIA-Alive is by far the best lyrically and vocally driven song released by a woman this year and she will never touch adele’s numbers…its sad

    • Lyte October 24, 2015

      SIA is awesome! Will listen to it, thanx for recommendation!

  9. Didier October 24, 2015

    yass hunni! the ‘slay’ word is so fvcking overrated tho’

  10. No favs, just here for the music October 24, 2015

    Adele’s comeback feels like a hurricane just passed through lol!!! Destroying all competition in sight

  11. Lmfao_Hoe October 24, 2015

    Thank you Lord Jesus! Lol Taylor probably seething. Like or dislike Adele, she has talent and as long as she uses that against the basics of today, I aunt mad and I shall support her. I pray her success will encourage record labels and excutives to help promote the REAL ARTISTS of R&B and ect.

    • Meteorite October 24, 2015

      That’s what I was hoping for when 21 went commercial. Unfortunately the generic music was still imminent. Hopefully this time around the record companies will get it and take que and give real artist a chance.

      • Kev Kev October 26, 2015

        You realize that there is a ton of talent out there but from the UK. Thank God for Highspeed internet!

  12. Lover of music October 24, 2015

    It is always good to see REAL TALENT winning.

  13. Hahaha October 24, 2015

    I can’t stand that b*tch named Taylor.
    Just a stupid skeleton like Beyonce…and a record company’s puppet.

  14. Shady81 October 24, 2015

    Loving this and loving Adele’s new song I cried hearing the song for the first time god that woman knows how to touch your emotions. Adele will definitely be on her legendary status very soon hell if they gave her icon status tomorrow, it’s well deserved because she’s the only artist from this generation giving quality music the music of yesteryear.

  15. Weezy Tha G.O.A.T October 24, 2015

    Taylor has always been Adele’s lessor from the Grammys to the Oscars to the Album sells and now Vevo.

    • Huhuhu October 24, 2015

  25. How Many Drinks October 24, 2015

    • HailBeysus October 24, 2015

      Hahaha all Rihanna’s titles are being snatched faster than when she set em!!! Adele is going in for the kill!!! Yaaassss

  26. lulu October 24, 2015

    Why y’all haying Beyonce on an Adele post. I swear some you are reaching too hard. Y’all don’t even stan for Adele, you stan for her sale. And pls keep the argument “selling without having to act s***/s***” to yourself LMAO of course Adele doesn’t do that because she can’t. Logic people.

  27. Gee October 24, 2015

    Congratulations to Adele on her latest achievements but can we please stop acting like we all stand for Adele now that she kicking ass and taking names. Also please stop bashing other artists because the majority being bashed have made history and are on legend status or on their way there.

  28. Hovah2.0 October 24, 2015

    BATTLE OF THE WHITE GODDESS OF THIS EARTH. UNFORTUNATELY NO “TRUE” BLACK TALENT EVER REACHES THESE SUCCESSFUL HEIGHTS ANYMORE. IT’S STILL A WHITE WOMAN/MAN’S WORLD. BUT EVERYONE (NON WHITE) IS A SLAVE AND WORSHIPPER OF THE WHITE WOMAN AND MAN. RIHANNA AND BEYAWNCE ARE SLOWLY GETTING KICKED TO THE BACK OF THE BUS AKA ROSE PARKS SECTION FOR THE WHITE SUPREMACY TO CONTINUE! U BETTA GET THOSE SELLS ADELOFAT!

    • Chile, leave my weave at the door and don’t steal it like those broke ass barb stans October 24, 2015

      Goodbye! You’ve said entirely too much. Your presence on this blog is UNNECESSARY. You can miss me, and the other users, with that race-driven mess.

      • Hovah2.0 October 24, 2015

        B****, don’t get mad at me. Get mad at the facts. Don’t hate the player, hate the game boo boo. You can miss yourself cause i’m pretty sure I am not the only one who acknowledges these things. So goodbye Stevie Wonder/Helen Keller. Hit me back when you get a real pair of eyes installed. Thanks.

  29. mr.m October 24, 2015

    Am NOT a fan of taylor, but I wonder why ppl say poor taylor of rip taylor!? yall stupid.
    Adele will do nothin’ to her! She almost end up her “89” era, with 5 smash hits and one of the biggest grossing tours. So there’s nothin’ to worry about, I guess.
    Ariana, Rih, 1D, JB are the ones who will get effected by Adele. NOT THAT they’ll not gonna sell, but for sure adele will get the most attention and snatch the weaves. JUST BEING HONEST.

  30. orangeyougladIdidntsaybanana October 24, 2015

    “Yo Taylor I’m really happy for you, but I’m not gonna let you finish. I’m about to have one of the best eras of all time…again.” actual lyrics from 25

  31. Theman October 24, 2015

    Adele is very amazing. But those other artists are doing great too. Why does it always have to be a competition? Celebrate all of their great success. Furthermore, you’d think that with the way that Adele sales, radio would wake up & play more qualitative and versatile music. She moves tons of units. Adele’s success has nothing to do with Taylor’s. Taylor is wildly successful too.. Can some urban artists get in on this success?

  32. King Stephy October 24, 2015

    Slayage.

  33. Beysus/Adelicane October 24, 2015

    Chile, the only person that could stop Adelicane right now is Beysus. Adelicane is whiping the floor with ALL the competition. Anti will debut at #2 (and drop lower the next week). Rihflopna wont sell more than 100k in her first week. I can hear the Grammy’s calling 25’s name, and the garbage pale calling Anti’s name.

  34. james October 25, 2015

    I honestly think Adele is the queen of them all . Beyonce , riri,taylor u better not waste ur time and effort to release any album coz the titan is gonna snatch ur wigs the whole year 2016

  35. Usual Observer October 25, 2015

    Beyonce is my fav and I don’t see that changing anytime soon. HOWEVER, there is no denying that Adele is literally in a league all her own. No one has the impact she has and sells how she does. She sells 10M records effortlessly even with today’s musical climate. The damn girl racked up 50M YouTube views in 2 days. There’s no denying her. If you try to, seriously, seek help. lol

  36. King Mark111 /.\ October 25, 2015

    Good for her. I guess no one is safe out here, yet they’re worried about a girl with 13 #1’s.

    • Always0609 October 25, 2015

      ….and virtually NO multiplatinum albums.

  37. J Crewed Up October 25, 2015

    I love “Hello.” No doubt. Looks like I’ll have a date with “25” on Nov. 20 like I did with “21” in Feb. of 2011. But let’s be clear, “21” isn’t the landmark album people make it out to be. It had a few great songs, some average songs, and a few bad songs. It sold astronomically well, yes, but great sales do not automatically make a masterpiece.

    I really hope this album is better than “21” so she won’t be afraid to alienate some of her fans in the future. For Adele, only 27, to really become the artist that she can be she eventually has to produce a work that everyone won’t like. I hope that album is coming soon. This one won’t be it though.

    I’ll say this, there is no other popular artist on Earth who connects so many different listeners. Pop, R & B, Soul, Rap, Metal, Rock, etc…fans get behind her and that is something we don’t see very often in history. I just wish my Amy was still here so we could get another angle of the British genius.

    Looking forward to the album.

  38. Mad-on-her October 26, 2015

    Adele might even reach 2 million first week in the US.
    The fact she’s smashing singles records, when she is primarily an album seller, is indicative that there’s no limit for 25. This is uncharted territory. I’m excited to see what happens. But I can’t see her outselling 21. I think she’ll do 20 million sales in total, and might even manage a million sales first week in the UK, which would be an all time record. Currently the record is Oasis’ Be Here Now which shifted 700,000 in 1997.
