Unrivalled: Adele’s ‘30’ secures first position on Billboard charts
Despite tough competition, her newest release has effortlessly dominated the charts.
They say that old habits die hard. This is certainly true for Adele, who seemingly has a knack for putting out record-breaking albums. Her second and third studio albums, “21” and “25”, are both testaments to her unrelenting perfectionism.
Her most recent project, “30”, is yet another addition to this list of chart topping records, further cementing her reputation as one of the most accomplished contemporary artists from across the pond.
With 839,000 equivalent album units sold by November 25th, she swiftly takes first place, surpassing both Drake’s “Certified Lover Boy”, and Kanye West’s “Donda”, which sold 613,000 and 309,000 units respectively.
The first single off the album, “Easy On Me”, gained massive success, hitting No.1 on global charts according to Billboard.
“30” marks the longest gap between two Adele albums, after 2015’s “25”, but the 6 year long wait was well worth it.
