If you don’t know who Adele is by now, you really should. She is a British singer with a HUGE following. Her soulful voice has attracted her a lot of attention both critically and with the masses. Many huge stars, including Beyoncé, have sited Adele as an inspiration, even at her ripe old age of 23. Her sound has been compared to a cross between Duffy and Amy Winehouse. Her popularity is continuing to skyrocket.
Nielsen SoundScan’s senior vice president of analytics Dave Bakula told MTV News. “You’ve got an artist here who wasn’t a household name prior to this record coming out, so you do still have that discovery process going on with her.
“What it really goes to show is the fact that there still are that many people discovering the album every week,” he added. “I think it shows a lot about the latent demand that is out there for great music.”
Her current tour for her second studio album, 21, is going incredibly well. Many performances had to be added or moved to larger venues to accommodate her adoring fans. Earlier this month, Adele had to cancel her North American tour due to laryngitis. She was “devastated” to have to cancel, but she didn’t want to risk permanently injuring herself. Her tour commences on August 9th in Vancouver.
