Adele’s “Hello” Debuts at No. 1 on Billboard

Adele just refuses to be stopped right now, as it was just made official that her new single, “Hello,” debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. Not only that, but Adele also set the record for most downloads of a song in the United States in one week with 1.11 million. This was the first ever song to reach over one million downloads in the first week of sales.

Surprisingly enough, this is Adele’s first ever song to debut at the No. 1 spot on the chart, though this is her fourth song to reach the top spot. Adele won’t be stopping anytime soon though, with her upcoming album, 25, reportedly a lock to sell over a million copies in the first week. There are even rumblings that she could reach the two million mark if everything goes right.

Justin Bieber also continued his chart dominance this week, with his new single “Sorry” debuting at the No. 2 spot behind Adele. Earlier this year, Bieber’s single, “What Do You Mean,” debuted at No. 1, which gives good reason to think that his upcoming album, Purpose, is poised to make a major splash. Drake’s “Hotline Bling” tumbled back to the No. 3 spot on the charts, while the previous No. 1— the Weeknd’s “the Hills”— fell to No. 4.
