[NEWS] Adele writes history in this weeks UK Chart by wearesme

This weeks UK chart has just been announced and it’s an incredible week for Adele and her label XL Recordings.

She has stormed to the top of the album charts with her second album 21 achieving record sales of over 208,000 in just one week; a figure that is only bettered by Take That’s ‘Patience’ last year. 21 is now the highest selling January album for five years.

Incredibly she her debut album 19 has made its way back into the chart securing a number 4 slot over 2 years after its release! Adele is the first artist for almost twelve years to score two Official Albums Chart Top 5 hits, including the number one, simultaneously.

And as if that wasn’t enough, Adele also has 3 singles in the Top 40 with Rolling In The Deep (3), Make You Feel My Love (15) and Someone Like You (36).

Incredible. And Deserved.

For the full album and single charts, head over to The Official Charts.


[VIDEO] Adele – BBC Radio 1 Live Lounge Special by wearesme

Adele was given the privilege of taking over the Radio 1 airwaves for a full 30 minutes this afternoon, performing several tracks from the Maida Vale Live Lounge Studio including a brilliant cover of Cheryl Cole’s ‘Promise This’ (it’s actually a great song when a real singer gets their hands on it!)

Words can’t really sum up how good this Live Lounge was. It was certainly the best half hour of radio we’ve heard in a while.

Luckily, if you missed it, video footage has been made available by the lovely people at Radio 1. And the lovely people at SME are bringing it to you below. Sit back and enjoy Adele, and her stunning voice.

This brand new song was premiered on Radio 1 this evening. The track taken from the upcoming album ’21’ is rumoured to be the followup single to the amazing ‘Rolling In The Deep’.

Adele’s album ’19’ charted at number 6 today, a massive THREE YEARS after it’s release! And the track ‘Make You Feel My Love’ from the album re-charted at number 7 in the singles chart. Amazing!

Here is the official video for Adele’s first single ‘Rolling In The Deep’ taken from her eagerly anticipated upcoming album ’21’.

Vodpod videos no longer available.

This is such an epic tune but we wish they went with the ‘Studio Footage’ released last month. Shot in black and white and following Adele through the highs and lows of recording, we felt it represented her comeback single perfectly.

Either way SME think 2011 is Adele’s year. Mark our words!

‘Rolling In The Deep’ is the first single from Adele’s new album ’21’ due for release on February 22nd 2011; almost exactly two years after she won a Grammy for Best New Artist.

Adele said she wrote the revenge-themed tune in a fit of rage: “I was so angry that I finished ‘Rolling in the Deep’ in about an hour.”

Check out studio footage from the album recording sessions in Malibu, California.

This could easily be a video within itself! Its great to see her back and with such an epic song. She has real talent.
