It may have been five years since its release, but the much-appreciated, critically acclaimed album, 21, is back in the charts. And not on some ordinary position, it has re-entered the top 10 of iTunes worldwide.
The album was released on 24 January 2011, wnamed after the age of the singer during its production. 21 Shares the folk and Motown soul influences of Adele’s 2008 debut album 19, but was further inspired by the American country and Southern blues music to which she had been exposed during her 2008–09 North American tour, An Evening with Adele.
Five singles were released to promote the album, with “Rolling in the Deep”, “Someone like You” and “Set Fire to the Rain” becoming worldwide number-one hits, while “Rumour Has It” charting in the top 20 across Europe and North America. Shortlisted for the 2011 Mercury Prize, 21 won the 2012 Grammy Award for Album of the Year and the Brit Award for British Album of the Year.
And now, the album is back in the game, with “Set Fire To The Rain” and “Someone Like You” in the Top 100, and the overall album in the Top 10 on iTunes worldwide.
As far as her new music is concerned, Adele is taking the hit with it too! Her latest album 25, released last year, is now back at #1 on iTunes Worldwide. It has spent an astounding 151 days atop the chart, breaking records ever since its release.
We are very proud of Adele and her true-to-the-soul music, which is being rewarded with everything it deserves. We would like to hear your thoughts too! Comment below or tweet us out at @Celebmix.
