Bow down to Adele!
The queen just set an all-time digital downloads record with an incredible first week performance for her new single Hello, pushing an unbelievable 1.1 MILLION copies out to fans!!
The million-sale threshold has never been crossed before by anyone, so it’s HUGE news that Adele has gotten there and beyond in just seven days!
Not surprisingly, her 1.1 million digital downloads shatters the previous record:it had been held by Flo Rida‘s Right Round hitting 636,000 downloads way back in 2009. Adele nearly doubled that!!
It wasn’t just Adele having a big week, though… Justin Bieber walked away very strong after a week that saw Sorry jump to number two on the Billboard Hot 100 right behind Adele’s Hello, while the Biebs’ What Do You Mean? held steady at number five on the charts, as well.
In comparison to Hello, Justin’s Sorry was downloaded 277,000 times, so yeah — Adele demolished the competition!
Here’s the full top ten from the Billboard Hot 100 for this week:
1. Adele, Hello
2. Justin Bieber, Sorry
3. Drake, Hotline Bling
4. The Weeknd, The Hills
5. Justin Bieber, What Do You Mean?
6. Shawn Mendes, Stitches
7. Taylor Swift, Wildest Dreams
