Allow her to reintroduce herself….
Adele’s passion and conviction as a truly one of a kind artist sets a colossal blaze yet again.
“Hello” is doing ginormous numbers already with the release of Adele’s third studio album 25 lingering around the corner on November 20. Shy off just a week and the single has broken notable records definitely worth mentioning.
And the list follows:
1. In week one (Oct. 29) “Hello” began with 1,112,000 downloads sold in a week breaking Flo Rida’s “Right Round” record of 636,000 from February of 2009.
2. “Hello” is the 24th song to debut at no.1 on Billboard’s Hot 100’s history & the British singer’s first. Previous to this was Justin Beiber’s “What Do You Mean,” just eight weeks ago with last woman to debut at no.1 on this list being Taylor Swift with “Shake It Off,” in September 2014.
3. This single is Adele’s fourth no.1 on digital songs and Hot 100 charts. “Hello” is the heavy-weight singer’s 4th no.1 under her belt overall preceding “Rolling In The Deep,” “Someone Like You” and “Set Fire To The Rain.”
4. “Hello” did 61.6 million streams following its radio release on October 23 with the official video’s simultaneous release that same day. The only song to out do the smash single is Baauer’s “Harlem shake” which debuted at 103 million streams. In a further breakdown, “Hello’s” highest streams in it’s first week came from Vevo & YouTube clicks of 35.1 million followed by Spotify streams with 18.1 million clicks.
This marker gives birth to Adele’s first no.1 streaming song!
And it doesn’t stop there…
5. On the other end of the pond “Hello” did 20.4 million on demand streams in the UK doubling from Justin Bieber’s “Mean” debuting with 10.1 million during the week of Sept. 19.
6. Hello’s airplay went up to 73 million on all-format audience impressions in its first week of airplay: 45-9 on the Radio Songs chart, 26-2 on the Adult Alternative Songs airplay chart, 25-8 on Adult Pop Songs, 20-9 on Adult Contemporary and 35-19 on Pop Songs.
7. And a woman is back at numero uno! Adele rules the top spot on the ‘Hot 100’ proceeding 22 weeks of men at no.1. This hiatus of women’s chart toppers stems from Taylor Swift’s 53-1 run with “Bad Blood” on the June 6 Hot 100.
