Well done Adele!
Beautiful Adele performs “Rolling in the Deep” at the 2012 Grammy Awards. Not only that, she won six awards on the night! Not a bad comeback. Quite simply the best voice of her generation…. And without all the overt sexuality and sleaze. “Rolling in the Deep” represented a commercial breakthrough for Adele, propelling her to international success. The song reached number one in 11 countries and the top five in many more regions. It was Adele’s first number-one song in the United States, reaching the top spot on many Billboard charts, including the Billboard Hot 100 where it was number one for seven weeks. By February 2012, “Rolling in the Deep” had sold over 7,600,000 copies in the United States, making it the highest selling digital song by a female artist in the US, the second best-selling digital song in the US and Adele’s best-selling single outside her native country, topping her previous best-selling “Chasing Pavements”.
Worldwide, it was the fifth best selling digital single of 2011 with sales of 8.2 million copies, later going on to sell over 10.3 million copies. The song spent 65 weeks on the chart, making the song the fourth most weeks spent on the chart, tying the place with Jewel with her double single “Foolish Games”/”You Were Meant for Me”.
