Is there anything Adele can’t do?

The 33-year-old made a triumphant return to the charts with Easy On Me recently, the first single from her new album, 30.

Fans have flocked to listen to the emotional record in their droves since it was released last Friday, with 30 becoming the highest-selling album of 2021.

According to Billboard, MRC Data found that it has already sold more than 500,000 copies in just three days.

So basically, everyone is well and truly in their feelings at the moment.

The new album, Adele’s fourth studio offering, has already surpassed Taylor Swift’s Evermore, which previously held the record with 469,000 copies.

Evermore was actually released last December, but the publication states it has sold well throughout 2021.

The 12-track album is another deeply personal record, and sees the Oscar-winner explore her divorce from ex-husband Simon Konecki – who she shares nine-year-old son Angelo with.

One particular song that raised eyebrows and sparked millions of Instagram captions when it was announced is I Drink Wine, but it turns out there was a huge debate around the whole thing.

Adele actually confessed that the original track was initially much longer – but her record label insisted on chopping it down.

‘[The label] was like, ‘Listen, everyone loves you, but no one’s playing a 15-minute song on radio,”’ she let slip to Rolling Stone.

We also might need to put the bottle down as Adele admitted that it’s not really about drinking wine.

Speaking in her CBS interview with Oprah Winfrey, Adele discussed how she coped with the breakdown of her relationship with Simon while penning songs for her latest album, revealing that she ‘stopped drinking’.

She added: ‘That’s one great way of really sort of getting to know yourself, is just drinking water and being sober as anything.’
