Adele’s comeback track “Easy On Me” blasted to No. 1 on the Official U.K. Chart last Friday, setting records along the way.
The song is roaring up the charts around the planet, as it starts at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 and Global Charts, Australia’s national survey and elsewhere.
“Easy On Me” is the first track lifted from Adele’s 30, her forthcoming fourth album due out Nov. 19.
It’s the followup to 2015’s 25, an album so popular, Adele was crowned IFPI Global Recording Artist of the Year for the year, an award which recognizes the top artist across physical sales, downloads and streaming.
Her global tour in support of that album was pure box office dynamite. When it wrapped, Adele stepped away from the public glare for five-long years, until “Easy On Me” dropped in full earlier this month.
The Hyde Park concerts are the first confirmed Adele dates, but they won’t be the last. The multiple Grammy Award-winner is considering a Las Vegas residency in 2022, sources tell Billboard.
For a cover story published in Vogue, Adele hinted at big things to come. She’s reportedly been warning friends that she’s “getting ready to be famous again.”
