According to Billboard, album 30 has been registered with 185M streams on-demand right after its release in the first week. The opening success of the album has made all the songs of the album 30 to enjoy the top position.
“@Adele’s ‘30’ earned 839,000 equivalent album units in the U.S. in the week ending Nov. 25, according to MRC Data.
That’s the largest week of the year, surpassing the opening week of @Drake’s ‘Certified Lover Boy’ (613,000 units)” Billboard tweeted.
As the singer mentioned, she got the album 30 inspiration from her divorce from Simon Konecki. Her songs depict everything, including how she tackled her situation whilst protecting her daughter.
In 2020, Taylor Swift’s Evermore got the spot of the best-selling album with 4,710,000 units sold around the world.
Adele maintained her image as the most bankable artist with her current release. In fact, her 2015 release, album 25 marked the platinum status after selling 3,000,000 in just a day.
Unlike in a conventional way, the songstress revealed her album release news through a note on social media noting how she found her inner self after going through a chaotic period.
“I’ve shed many layers but also wrapped myself in new ones. Discovered genuinely useful and wholesome mentalities to lead with, and I feel like I’ve finally found my feeling again. I’d go as far as to say that I’ve never felt more peaceful in my life. And so, I’m ready to finally put this album out. It was my ride or die throughout the most turbulent period of my life” she mentioned.
It seems like the singer wants to remove the shuffle option for her songs in Spotify as she Tweeted on Friday, “We don’t create albums with so much care and thought into our tracklisting for no reason.”
“Our art tells a story, and our stories should be listened to as we intended. Thank you Spotify for listening.”
