“That darn Adele.”
We’re pretty sure that’s a phrase being uttered by many-an-artist lining the Billboard’s Hot 100 for the past two weeks and will probably be for the next two years. Indeed, the elusive chanteuse returned with fury to the chart with a blockbuster comeback single ‘Hello’ – which set a first week sales record upon its premiere.
Now, three weeks in, the song still shows a slow decline in streaming and sales. Shifting an additional 480,000 this past week, it remains comfortably perched atop the tally. Elsewhere, courtesy of Taylor Swift, Meghan Trainor, and relative newcomer Elle King, the Hot 100 finally gets a much needed dose of estrogen. We said the same thing last week due to Ariana Grande‘s promising premiere of ‘Focus’ at #7.
…well, that was then.
The funky, horn-driven groove has slipped, tripped, and dipped right out of the top 10. See where it, and all of your faves from today, landed on the refreshed chart below:
