Continuing to dominate the charts and break previously set records, Adele has managed to accomplish quite a feat by outselling the King of Pop's classic 'Thriller' album in the United Kingdom.
Despite laying low, Adele continues to dominate the charts with her sophomore opus â21,â which is well on its way to reaching diamond status.
Adele, Rihanna, Bruno Mars and Chris Brown are among those with leading nominations in categories including Top Hot 100 Artist, Top R&B Artist and Top Male Artist. R&B talents including Miguel and Cee Lo Green are also nominated.
Adele is close to earning a Billboard Hot 100 record thanks to "Rolling In The Deep." According to Billboard, "Rolling In The Deep" has now had the third longest run on the Hot 100 in the chart's 53-year history.
Adele will not be taking an extended hiatus after all. In an interview with French radio network NRJ this week, the "Rolling In The Deep" singer confirmed the fact that fans can expect new music by year's end.
The BRIT Awards have given recording artists including Adele, Rihanna and Bruno Mars significant boosts in sales. Following Tuesday's celebration of music at London's O2 Arena, each act saw sales jump at least 17%.
The post-Grammy Award sales surge played out well for '21' singer Adele. According to Hits, the Grammy Award winning album, "21," sold an additional 716,000 copies last week, adding to already mega sales achieved in 2011.
Was it really a surprise when you read the above caption "Adele Storms 2012 Brit Awards?" I think not. After sweeping the 54th Grammy Awards, British singer Adele set her sights on the Brit awards and came out on top once again.
With such tremendous success on her sophomore LP â21,â fans would assume that Adele would want to continue riding on the wave and release more music to supply the massive demand. However, thatâs not the case.
The 54th Annual Grammy Awards have wrapped. In addition to it being a historic night, following the tragic death of Whitney Houston, the Grammys turned out to be a big night for Hip Hop and R&B -- this despite the controversial elimination of categories like Best Contemporary R&B Album.
