This is impressive stuff: Adele has become the first artist since the Beatles to have two top five singles and two top five albums in the charts at the same time in the UK. The singer’s newest single, “Someone Like You,” jumped 46 spots to become her first No 1 hit. That song joins “Rolling in the Deep,” which sits at No 4; on the album charts, Adele’s first two LPs – 21 and 19 – are also at No 1 and No 4 respectively.
“It’s amazing,” Adele told BBC Radio 1. “I’ve never had a No 1 single [before]. I’m probably annoying everyone as well, as I cried at the Brits and everything. I’m just so overwhelmed – I can’t believe the response to it.”
I know I gush about her, but she’s fantastic. And her album 21 comes out today in the US so BUY IT! I’ve already got my tickets for her US tour this spring… Watch her performance on Letterman last night after the jump![youtube]
