Adele’s ’25’ Lands On Spotify / Singer Set To Dominate Again?

After confessing a reluctance to use streaming services, chart titan Adele has finally made her gargantuan selling album ‘25’ available to stream on-demand.
More on the story, including its possible impact, below…

The ‘Hello’ singer (who is no doubt this generation’s biggest selling artist) moved a mind blowing 3.38 million units in a week upon the release of ‘25’ last November. Passing on the chance to have her album available on streaming services, it seems the 28 year old, along with label XL  and Colombia have reconsidered. Because, as at writing, the sure-fire award-winner now accessible on Spotify and Apple Music.
Confirmation came via Music Business Worldwide, who reported that the set is now available to stream in Australia and New Zealand. Two regions where it is already Friday (the global release day).
With the vocal powerhouse perhaps believing now to be an optimal time to impact all platforms with release, it begs the question of what positive consequence this could have on its chart run.
‘25’ is a certified sales monster, having surpassed sales of 17 million last year alone. A fact rendered all the more epic when considering it was released a month before 2015’s end.
Now, with streaming in the mix, it’s widely believed that the LP will receive a second wind commercially. Especially given how much streams weigh-in to where music peaks on the charts.
Currently on a hiatus before returning to the stage, the ‘Someone Like You’ singer will touch down in Minnesota next month to kick of the North American leg of her world tour.

    Lol dominate what again? Absolutely not! Everyone who’s wanted to listen, has already listened and we find out the hard way this album was PURE HYPE…

    This may assist her in going diamond tho since no one else is really buying it, which is sad being that the album has only been out 6 months

    • Ayyseify June 23, 2016

      But no one will pass her in sales… Highly doubt it

  2. Theman June 23, 2016

    The album has sold over 18 million copies ww. Her new single is good too. Keep on selling Adele!!!!

    • Travob Austin June 23, 2016

      IKR! With all the Beyonce, Rihanna, & Drake hype; this album is still the best seller this year without streams. It is still selling 50k-70k WW with no promotions. Her touring CD sales & upcoming appearances will only help. Now add streaming. OMG!

    • Ayyseify June 23, 2016

      • BeyKnowlesBest June 23, 2016

        She has no diversity in her music…21 was good 25 is the same depressed thing but worst..true greats Know how to change up, make people cry, dance and even be angry …most artist that follow that depressed broken hearted music trend have an expiration date mary j blige is a legend but she got married, keyshia cole & even Taylor Swift will die out soon…Adele is OVERATED FLUFF!

    • Mr.StLaurent June 23, 2016

      Don’t bring Whitney into this ?

    • whenindoubtthetruthwillout June 23, 2016

      I don’t think she wants to be Whitney.She is completely happy – and successful – being herself!!!!!

      Besides,who wants to be a dead drug addict?

  4. Travob Austin June 23, 2016

    Some people call you overrated but people still buy your music. Some people say your songs are too sad. I say your songs carry meaning and people love your quality. I call you a complete artist that doesnt sell your body. You sell your music. Your success is a reflection of that. Congrats

    • What Now June 23, 2016

      I agree. People are so stupid. The goal is to sell the most albums, singles, and have the most hits — that’s why it’s called the music industry. I guess people want Adele to put out an album and tell them no bye … and …, not mine. KIIII

      • What Now June 23, 2016

        Buy*** (I know better lol)

    • Queen Brit Brit June 23, 2016

    • Mimi June 23, 2016

  6. truthtea June 23, 2016

    Y’all who claim 25 sold on pure hype kill me! Beyonce sells on pure hype. Taylor Swift sells on pure hype! Along with Justin Bieber and Drake! Y’all just mad that adele doesn’t need to sell s** just to sell!

    • JOHNVIDAL June 23, 2016

      And then you have the ones that cannot sell at all despite using s**, like rihanna and the likes… 🙂

      • SMH June 23, 2016

        Or the ones who make up fake relationship drama like Beyoncé, and still don’t sell a third of what Adele does.

  7. IG : @mixedboy June 23, 2016

    Give props! I hate trolling stans. Adele is doing the damn thing. The ONLY one selling especially with no gimmicks at all! #slaydele

  8. Kayla C June 23, 2016

    Lmao Adele will continue to CRUSH everyone! I love it and I love the album. Release either Water Under the Bridge or Love in the Dark next

  9. #JACKIE June 23, 2016

    Yawn! Has she released any singles since Hello? She’s all hype no matter what y’all say and she’s not that great of a live singer.

  10. LB June 23, 2016

    Finally, the wait is over. I can finally listen to the whole album and judge it objectively on my SPOTIFY Premium account.

  11. SMH June 23, 2016

    Funny how folks are saying she sells on “hype”, but beyonces hype machine works overtime 24/7/365 and she doesn’t move half the units that Adele does.

    • Mr.StLaurent June 23, 2016

      Who move half the units that Adèle does ?!
      Nobody !

  12. JanStan June 23, 2016

    Some of y’all trying to act like 25 is flopping when it sold more physical copies alone in 7 months then ALL YOUR FAVES last eras sold in physical copies and streaming combined. Lol I. Cant. U tried it though.

  13. Kate Marc June 23, 2016

    We’ve had enough of her already, she’s talented and overrated at the same time she had her moment already. She should’ve done that when she dropped her album now the media will go on about how great she is when her music starts climbing the charts again and possibly win the Grammy in all big categories. She’s so annoying.

    • Kayla C June 23, 2016

      This is the epitome of a hater lol
