Adele Sets New Chart Record With ‘Hello’

Published: Sunday 1st Nov 2015 by David

Adele‘s ‘Hello‘ has just said hello to an enviable chart feat.

Find out what it is below…

Undisturbed by new releases unleashed by Justin Bieber or Ariana Grande Ms. Adkins topped the U.K’s Official Singles Chart with the new single.

What makes this Adele #1 so special is that its sales make it the biggest #1 single the market has seen in three years, nabbing 330,000 units in its opening week.

This is the first time a number has come close to matching or topping the 490,000 units James Arthur‘s cover of Shontelle‘s ‘Impossible’ moved in 2012.

The single’s parent album ’25’ will make its way to retailers globally on November 20th and is expected to sell over 2 million units in its opening week.

More on that here.

    It’s a good song but this hype is WAY TOO OVER THE TOP!
    The song is just good… She’s getting these accolades and feats simply because people feed into what they think is the best thing. I bet half the people who bought or listened to the song only did so because everyone else did and it was what was expected.. Like….. Sam Smith is far superior

    • Surprise..(DEC 2013) November 1, 2015

      What adele has going for her is her voice……Overrated or not, that girl has a beautiful and distinct voice. HELLO HAS THE MOST BASIC LYRICS, BUT BECAUSE SHE SINGS IT WITH SO MUCH SOUL AND PERSONALITY, IT SOUNDS BETTER THAN IT ACTUALLY IS. But, the one thing i don’t like is that, she is not a versatile singer. She pretty much sings about the same thins…..SADNESS. 19 and 21 are pretty much the same album to me.

    • shakira stan November 1, 2015

      F*** always hyping each other .

    • Lisa0954 November 1, 2015

      I agree I don’t really think the song is that good, she looks beautiful in the video but this song sounds like a rewrite of someone like u

    • JOHNVIDAL November 1, 2015

      Sam Smith is not superior sorry. Rolling in the Deep and Fire to the Rain alone destroy his existence. But I agree this Hello song is weak.

      • Surprise…Dec (2013) November 1, 2015

        I agree..Adele slays Sam. But Sam is more versatile with his vocals than Adele tho. He has a balance of Sad songs(Stay with me) and fun songs..(Restart).

      • Everyone’s A Critic November 1, 2015

        Plays Sam Smith Nirvana.. That song dumps on Adeles entire discography. Listen and you’ll agree

      • bonari November 2, 2015

        Why dont she get her fat behind up and dance while singing sometimes? LOL that would be amazing more so then that boring, depressed voice of hers… Just BORING! She is soo depressing ugh

  2. Slay_Hive November 1, 2015

    Congrats I actually really like Hello but I will never understand how she slays so effortlessly. Must be nice being a white blue-eyed soul sanger! Yaaaassss Lmao

    • Surprise..(DEC 2013) November 1, 2015

      Colour definitely plays a key role!!!!! and this is coming from a BIG FAN of hers..

      • Slay_Hive November 1, 2015

        Right. You’d never see Jazmine Sullivan or a Ledisi receive the same type of recognition and sales as Adele.

    • Surprise..(DEC 2013) November 1, 2015

      Are u excited for BEY potentially releasing a new single??

      • Slay_Hive November 1, 2015

        YYaaaassss I know she’s getting ready to come thru like a storm devouring all the attention from the lessor girls, as usual. I’m ready for some excitement. Hopefully we get an uptempo. I wanna dance!!!

      • SMH November 1, 2015


      • whenindoubtthetruthwillout November 1, 2015

        She would be mad to release anything in the wake of Adele’s new album!!!!!

    • OMG Logic!!! November 1, 2015

      Don’t you people ever get tired of dismissing talented artists as nothing more than their skin color? When did people question Whitney, Michael, or Mariah? No one said “it must be nice to be a Black artist singing catchy Pop songs” to dismiss their talent, so why do it when a White artist is succeeding?

      • Slay_Hive November 1, 2015

        ???????????????? @ “you people” lmaoo you’re clearly white and blind so I don’t expect you to understand. We are currently in 2015. Get here.

      • King Mark111 /.\ November 1, 2015

        I bet you and the rest of you pest do because you’re obsessed with her.

    • Surprise..(DEC 2013) November 1, 2015


      • King Mark111 /.\ November 1, 2015

        I’m a fan, I said that before. But you guys don’t like Rihanna, so why did you bring her up? Pressed much?

      • Tyler Makivelli November 1, 2015

        Well isnt that the pot calling the kettle muthafuckin black?
        B****, stop crying! You do the same exact thing in every other post.
        So with all do respect, have several seats. Rihanna already has.

      • Surprise..(DEC 2013) November 1, 2015

        You are a fan of who?? are u talking about BEY,??? if u are, i have never seen u say one nice thing about her on this blog!!!. SOME FAN U ARE..LOL

  4. HailBeysus November 1, 2015

    Adele is slaying everyone and everything in her path!!! Congrats girl!!!

  5. MsYonce November 1, 2015

    Congrats Adele

  6. MsYonce November 1, 2015

    Adele deserves all her success I’m happy for her. People that was stanning already dragging her as I predicted. They will do her just like they did Taylor start to drag her cause she on top

  7. Gee November 1, 2015

    I respect Adele’s talent and by no meansam

  8. Tyler Makivelli November 1, 2015

    Adele is an exceptional vocalist. Its just sad that bomb soul artist like Jill Scott, Angie Stone, Fantasia Barrino, Chrisette Michelle, or Ledisi will never see the same success. Those women can SANG and they’ve been in the game for a long time.
    Adele definitely has the complection to make the collection, if you know what I mean….

  9. Arianator Barb November 1, 2015

    I still have yet to listen to this song, 21, or any song of hers in its entirety.I have absolutely nothing against her, I’m just not interested

    • Arianator Barb November 1, 2015

      I’m 100% here for her ending Taylor. I truly despise everything that assless basic thot represents

  10. shakira stan November 1, 2015

    She is good ,actually very good and talented but she is over hyped .And enough with the white factor Michael Jackson was the biggest star in the universe and he is a black ….the freaking President of the united states is also a black ….the hive better come up with a better excuse why Beyonce can never sell like Adele .

    • HailBeysus November 1, 2015

      • shakira stan November 1, 2015

        Isn’t it sad when Beyonce album can’t even reach the 70 million albums a woman who lost relevance ten years ago reached ?

    • HailBeysus November 1, 2015

      Going into sales now i see. Well Shakira has sold more than Bey. But hasn’t she been around since like the early 90s. Also she has around 62 million albums claimed, that 75 million is what sony is pushing. Considering it took Beyonce only 5 albums and 12 years to gain 31.5 million albums sold is impressive when compared to Shakira’s entire sareer span! Also Beyonce outsells her by 25 million records. Shakira has 125 million records sold and Bey stands at 151 million records sold. So bye felicia!!

      • shakira stan November 2, 2015

        What’s their single ratio?
        Shakira releases 2 or three single per album ,beyawnce releases all her entire discography. Buzz me when Beyonce has block busters like hips don’t lie waka waka or wherever.bye s***

    • Memo November 2, 2015

      The excuse will be she’s an R&B artist and that R&B doesn’t sell that much.

    • HailBeysus November 2, 2015

      Looking for more ways to contemplate why your fav has sold less LMAO!!! Well Dahling Your fave releases an average album with 11 tracks and on Average uses 6 of those tracks as singles, talk about using your entire discography lol!!!
      Magia (1991) (1 single), Peligro (1992) (1 single), She gave up promoting on these because they were commercial flops and just all around EMBARRASSING LMFAO!!! Pies Descalzos (1995) (6 singles), Dónde están los ladrones (1998) (6 singles), Laundry Service (2001) (6 singles), Fijación Oral, Vol 1 (2005) (4 singles),
      Oral Fixation Vol 2 (2005) (3 singles), She Wolf (2009) (4 singles), Sale el Sole (2010) (6 singles), Shakira (2014) (3 singles). Now for my Queen Dangerously In Love (2003) (4 singles),
      B’Day (2006) (6 singles), I Am Sasha Fierce (9 singles), 4 (2011) (7 singles), Beyonce (2013) (5 singles). Its clear who needs to release more singles to try and stay relevant your fav lmao!!! P.S what blockbuster albums you talking about gurl!?!? She only has 1 Laundry Service which sold 20 million worldwide. Acting like she was pulling in Mariah numbers album after Album lmao!!!

  11. JOHNVIDAL November 1, 2015

    Incredible success and I´m counting on her to keep saving teh little prestige mainstream music has left (she is really talented, unlike most now). BUT, this song is very bland. Despite all the success I truly think it will be totally forgotten in a few years since she has many other better singles in her short career. Hope the next singles and the whole album are better. For nowadays standards it is a decent song, for the standards the collosal artists like her had to face in the 80s and 90s it is absolutely weak.

  12. black heart people November 1, 2015

      • Danity Slain November 2, 2015

        Why can’t an urban blog be a diverse blog? Or are you one of those people who think black people only have ears for hip hop

  13. Tyler Makivelli November 1, 2015

    I dont see the Llama Whisperer doing Adele or Beyonce numbers. So you really have no room to talk.

    The hate is real on here! Y’all want to know who’s overhyped and overrated??? Taylor!!!

    • Surprise…Dec (2013) November 1, 2015

      100% agree. She has some catchy tunes, but she can’t sing to save her life and her lyrics are very juvenile.

  18. No favs, just here for the music November 1, 2015

    She deserves every ounce of success

  19. StanPolice November 1, 2015

    I feel some of these comments. I think its a great song and she sings it with an emotion and passion that’s a breath of fresh air, but truthfully if an artist like Jazmine Sullivan were to sing this same EXACT record (she would tear this apart) it it would not receive no where near the acclaim it has. Forever Doesn’t Last >>> Hello. #BlackSingersMatter

  20. Royalkev November 1, 2015

    The Adele hype (along with the sells for ’25’) will surely go through the roof this year. It seems like she can get away with doing very little and still be guaranteed to have some sort of media frenzy going on everywhere. I never had much of an interest in her, but I won’t say that she doesn’t have any talent. It’s there, but the praises she receives is just magnified to the extreme. I liked ‘Chasing Pavements’ and ‘Someone Like You’, but I personally felt ‘Rolling in the Deep’ and a few of her other hits were so average and overblown by the media. That said, ‘Hello’ is one of the best songs I’ve heard from Adele (and even in music for a while, period). I just feel like it’s being made out to be this ‘Thriller’ kind of event and it’s not. I do hear growth from Adele though and I’d like to see what her music sounds like these days.

    • OMG Logic!!! November 1, 2015

      Hometown Glory from 19 is still her best work as far as I’m concerned.

      • Royalkev November 1, 2015

        That song’s not bad at all. Her voice sounds as if it’s matured now, but she does sing that one with a lot passion.

  21. londontru November 1, 2015

    What i can say is. All she is done is to be expected. this is a white woman who has heavy media attention. She is selling off privelge and some degree of talent. Lets not forget the empire the kardashians have built Without any talent. Bottom line. WHITE GIRLS sell. PERIOD.
    So please dont u DARE compare beyonce and rihannas success. Those two women. HAVE 0 privelge and talent but will never be held in the same regard by the media. IT is beyond sad to watch people say…BEYONCE would never or RIHANNA would never sell as much….R U actually realising that u are happy that this white girl is winning coz of the color of her skin. PERIOD. and yes JAZZMINE sullivan would never sell the same if she did the same song. BUT. The type of producers JAZMINE Gets are not the same as adele gets. IF a black girl was given the opportunity of working with the type of writers and producers Adele gets then they would sell a good amount tooo. SO black women cannot win a race they are not even invited to …. That Viola Davis said something similar when accepting her speech.

    THATS Y i rate simon cowell as he really tried with LEONA LEWIS. SHE had dope producers & writers and sold a shed load of records for her 1st two albums. THIS GAME ISN’T all it appears. BEYONCE AND RIHANNA AND NICKI ARE ALL ON THE SAME TEAM…TEAM BLACK GIRL. dont let these white media decieve u they praised elvis presley for stolen songs. told us MJ was crazy…NOW they lying saying a 1/2 CREOLE woman is bleaching her skin and getting that ugly c*** MICA Paris to shat s*** about queen B…

  22. Taylor swifts number 1 fan!! November 1, 2015

    WW sales: @taylorswift13, “1989” 37,000 (8,386,000 total

  23. londontru November 1, 2015

    1 Last note. about the “viola davis speech” thing. Notice how when something is promoted people buy into it…could be any old crap but once its promoted people buy into it. Other than whitney houston. Whens the last time a black woman was promoted? seriously and fairly promoted? Also us black people do have some blame unless a sister is beautiful we dont even want to hear her song. Unless she is attractive she dont really even get a look in….Even black people didn’t even really like Bob Marly. Which is a fact.

    • JOHNVIDAL November 2, 2015

      Whitney Houston is the biggest black star ever that´s for sure (after Michael Jackson I mean). It was too much of everything.

  24. Like a prayer November 1, 2015

    I’m sorry, but can someone PLEASE explain to me what “gay kids” and “gay parents” are? I’m so confused….and I don’t know why some of them end up having sexual relationships.

  26. bonari November 1, 2015

    Song is only OK, their are loads of other singers that are more soulful and would Rip this sad depressing song up! She wont get any of my $$$ because she is nothing but a sad sack in my opinion… How bout she get that overweight b*** and try to dance and sing sometimes LOL
