She was gone for a while to focus on her new album and to take care of her little boy, but since today 23 October 2015 Adele is officially back. Adele (27) released her first single in three years (Skyfall) this morning in The Netherlands. At 09:00 every radio station in the country released the song ‘Hello’ and it skyrocketed, in different country’s, to number one on iTunes.
It took Adele more than four years to come with a new song. Why? She decided that there are more important things in life then being a famous singer, like being a mother for her son Angelo. I think it takes a lot of strength to decide that you take a break to focus on your family. Especially when you have millions of fans over the whole world and you are on the top of your career.
Last Sunday Adele gave to world a little hint of her new single ‘Hello’ in the break from X-factor UK. After this the whole world started guessing when her album release will be. World famous stars like Justin Bieber, One Direction and Kylie Minogue decided to early their album release. Tuesday she posted a personal letter on social media about her new album ‘25’.
So today she released the song and video clip of ‘Hello’ and the song has already half a million views on YouTube and she is number one on iTunes in the UK, USA, Belgium, France, New Zealand, Brazil, Australia, Ireland and The Netherlands. Which is impressive, because she did not do a promo. When I listen to her new song and see how she skyrocketed to the download top on iTunes, I just cannot wait until her album release on November 20th.
