After the monumental success of her latest album 25, it’s no secret Adele is one of the hottest music acts in the game.
And now that the British crooner’s deal with her label has expired, music labels are willing to pay big bucks to sign the global superstar!
The Hello singer is reportedly about to say hi to a deal with Sony Music for $130 million!
According to the Sun, a source from Sony said:
“We’ve secured Adele, who’s without doubt the biggest music star in a generation. This is massive.”
The deal would would be the biggest deal in history for a British musician, topping the $115 million EMI shelled out to sign Robbie Williams in 2002.
And by surpassing Whitney Houston‘s $100 million deal with Arista back in 2001, this also makes the biggest deal for a female artist in history!
A spokesperson for Adele reportedly had no comment to make on the deal, but the Sony insider added:
“Adele’s deal with her original label, XL, expired and we’d an existing relationship with her in America. The deal is being worked on by our Columbia label in the US, but is worth [$130 million] and gives Sony the rights to release her future music exclusively around the world.”
That’s a pretty insane price tag — but we think Adele is totally worth it!
