Adele Continues To Kill The Game, Scored “21’s” Second #1 Single & Makes Billboard History!!!

With Adele‘s leap from No. 19 to No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 this week with “Someone Like You,” the singer achieves the biggest jump to No. 1 in the chart’s 53-year history that wasn’t spurred by the release of a single.

Every other larger vault to No. 1 in Hot 100 history came as a result of a single arriving to the market. That includes the chart’s greatest jump, Kelly Clarkson’s 97-1 leap in 2009 with “My Life Would Suck Without You” or what was the tally’s biggest climb until 2002: the Beatles’ 27-1 rise with “Can’t Buy Me Love” in 1964.

“Someone,” on the other hand, zoomed to No. 1 thanks to buzz generated by Adele’s MTV Video Music Awards performance on Aug. 28. The song, her second No. 1, was released to digital retailers on Feb. 22 as a track on her XL/Columbia “21” album, which arrived the same day.

“Someone” sold 275,000 downloads, according to Nielsen SoundScan, in the week ending Sept. 4 (up 191%). Its huge sales increase came courtesy of the song’s water cooler-worthy performance on the most-watched VMAs in history. On the show, Adele sang the heartbreaking ballad on a darkened stage, accompanied by a sparse piano.

ASTOUNDING!!! The british soulstress is having a great, going to sweep the Grammys next year! “21” is a triumph, an album that easily stands up to Beyonce’s “4” and landmark albums from r&b and soul musicians like Mariah Carey, Alicia Keys & Amy Winehouse..

If you haven’t picked up the album, COP IT IMMEDIATELY!!!

  2. I don’t even know how I ended up here, but I thought this post was good. I don’t know who you are but certainly you are going to a famous blogger if
    you are not already 😉 Cheers!

  3. This specific Suzuki S350 is actually a mini
    grand digital piano which is designed with utmost craftsmanship and craftsmanship.
    For instance, the OTS may be a piano on a jazz style, an acoustic
    guitar for Latin style and a guitar having overdrive etc for rock style.
    Having said that, not everyone can afford to spend $30,000 on a new Steinway
    Piano and so the question arises, “Is it possible that a pianist or piano student may be better served by purchasing a digital piano rather than an acoustic piano.

  4. Digital Aids: The digital models also come with software
    programs that help beginners and aid in composing.
    r Klavier in vier Teilen’ (music for piano in four parts),
    which consists of three very brief movements among which is embedded a lengthy set
    of variations on a rather extended and ambiguous theme.
    Buying a piano doesn’t have to be a daunting experience.
