Adele's 'Hello' Breaks Records with #1 Billboard Hot 100 Debut

Adele‘s new single “Hello” has broken records on its way to debuting at number one on the Billboard Hot 100 chart this week.

The 27-year-old singer notably broke the record for the most U.S. downloads of a song in one week. “Hello” sold 1.11 million copies and it’s the first song to cross the million mark in one week. The previous record holder was Flo Rida‘s song “Right Round” with 636,000 copies.

Adele also broke the record for the On-Demand Songs chart with 20.4 million on-demand streams, breaking the record that Justin Bieber set back in September with 10.1 million streams for “What Do You Mean?”

“Hello” marks the fourth time that Adele has topped the Hot 100 chart after “Rolling in the Deep,” “Someone Like You,” and “Set Fire to the Rain.”

    Worths it! Congrats and welcome back!!

  • Nikki Lee

    Weeknd has loads of talent and topped it the last six weeks. I think Adele’s a lot more boring than Taylor Swift.

  • Nikki Lee

    Way worse than meh, imo. Boring elevator music designed to cater to out of touch 50 somethings.

  • Nikki Lee

    Awful song. Hopefully is sinks fast.

  • Gina

    And she did it all without a “squad.” Congrats Adele.

    Thank god for record execs in England who still pick singers who can actually sing.

  • Wheel_House

    I don’t see that happening anytime soon. She’s a powerhouse right now. The song is going to be a big deal until the rest of her album is released.

    but it’s not best song

  • Nikki Lee

    Yeah, it’s gonna stay where it is in the forseeable future. I say it has a 50/50 chance of beating Gaga’s record.

  • MALP1

    Way worse than meh…then it is youuuh!
