    Adele keeps breaking records. In three days, “Hello” has sold more than 750k across all platforms and could possibly finish the week with 1 million-plus. That follows the single’s new one-day record of 400k-plus.

    Meanwhile, the video has surpassed 70m views.

    As for the album 25 (due out 11/20), preorders across all platforms are over 200k after three days—and that is one helluva fast clip.

    BROKE THE ONE-WEEK SALES RECORD ALREADY!

    Taylor Swift's 1989, which opened with like 1.27 million copies, had 350k copies of pre-orders when it was released. These 200k are just after two days.

    She's still on track to break Miley's quickest to 100 million views record.

    Can ADELEGEND sell 250k in another four days to hit a milli? 400k first day, 350k the weekend. Reaching the milestone seems inevitable.

    Hello

    Venezuela is literally living in the past - 'Hello' is out of Top 200 there and 25 is not Top 200 either. But 21 is No 1 and 'Someone Like You' is No 2.

    25 is projected to do 1.5-1.7 million copies in the US basing it on current pre-orders. Eminem's record ain't safe. Utada's world-wide record ain't safe.

    Video going 100 million today.

    'Hello''s projection keeps trending up little by little. Now up to 1.15m excluding sales from pre-orders (which would add around 300-500k to the sum).

    Broke Spotify's one-week global record! 22m streams after four days - record was 21m in a week.

    I really don't like this song. What is all the fuss about?! I love Adele - some of her music really is wonderful, but Hello is average compared to Hometown Glory or Someone Like You.

    (Original post by kkboyk)
    She does have a very large fan base (especially since it grew after Skyfall) and the song is heavily advertised, so its to be expected.
    (Original post by rat poison)
    ok I said in a following post that Celine's sound is **** but her voice isn't complimented by the music. Almost like producers/writers don't know what to do with her talent Whereas Adele needs the beautiful ballads and cool videos.
    has any of you heard this cover yet?

    OK she might not be Whitney Houston but still she has a beautiful voice. I just feel like this will end up being her signature song for ever.

    Nooo, I have high hopes for her album. I actually don't like her first album at all and 21 is overrated. I mean it is a great album but the hysteria over it and how it's still on the charts is a bit too much. I think this new album will be her best yet.

    I didn't listen to 19 much; I only listen to Hometown Glory which is quite catchy. 21 was better since it has more catchy tunes. 25 ... I haven't listened to Hello - the video intro put me off a bit : /

    Rolling and Fire were catchy tunes; which one of these is similar to Hello?

    Its the gay teenage boys. They like music that teenage girls do, thats why. Also, female pop singers are always very openly gay friendly so thats why.

    That kind of makes sense but i find the whole cult of beyonce/adele etc a bit...unsettling.

    It's because women are strong and we live in a patriarchy which has put women into a disadvantage.

    Gays love strong women as a result, even Her Highness The Rt Hon The Baroness Thatcher. It's definitely not just gay teenagers or Madonna would have no fans left.

    I wouldn't say ADELE has a cult or that her main fanbase is the gays. ADELEGEND's fanbase is the general public. No gay icons have captured the world as much as she has - ADELE is now giving us the biggest musical event since The Beatles - not even Michael Jackson peaked as high.

    In true ADELEGEND fashion, 25 has defined all expectations.

    After the first day, 25 is already diamond in Brazil and Poland.

    After the first day, 25 has already sold more than 300k copies in the UK, potentially going above a million first week. Previous record was Oasis's not even 700k.

    After the first day, 25 is looking to go more than 3 million copies in the US. The previous record for females was Britney Spears's 1.3m, and overall *Nsync's 2.4m. Industry sources say she'll go over a million just digitally (breaking of course Beyoncé's and Lady Gaga's records), another million just from Walmart and Target. They said her physical sales are literally so huge they couldn't find any other album in history to compare her against. People have been flooding Target and even the customer service counter is meeting 25 buyers all day. It's even predicted that she may outsell Justin Bieber's first-week sales (which was the biggest this year so far at 500k) every single day of the near future.

    With the second week in the US containing both Black Friday and Cyber Monday, she's also looking to be the first album ever to have two million-selling weeks.

    She's looking to go half a million in Germany, and similar stories are heard everywhere in the world.

    The current global record for one-week sales was held by Utada with 3 million copies. She's definitely topping that.

    What's crazier? The best-selling album in 2015 so far sold only 3.87m - she's going to have the best-selling album globally after less than a week!

    On US radio, she's also just topped 200 million in audience impression (at No 1, of course) with a freaking 13 million increase.

    She also occupied 7 of the Top 10 on US iTunes, a record shared by Michael Jackson after his death and Taylor Swift.

    ---

    ETA: This just in!

    ADELE sold 900k on iTunes only in the US...first day. Beyoncé's iTunes record (600k in three days) and Lady Gaga's digital record (600k overall in a week, 400k sold for $0.99) both snatched.

    The previous 3m projection was based on iTunes selling 900k first week. How high can she go? The best-selling album so far is Taylor Swift's 1989 which has sold only 1.7m.

    Whilst unconfirmed, we can be certain that she broke the first-day record set by *Nsync (1.1m) and Britney Spears's first-week record (1.3m) in just a day.
