Adele has been on fire over the past week, as she released her first single since 2015, last week. This was with “Easy On Me,” as it’s expected to become the number one song, on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, next week.
Easy On Me is also shattering various streaming records, including accumulating the most streams in a single day, on the global Spotify chart. It’s also broken other single day records, such as most Alexa requests, on Amazon. Easy On Me is currently number 68, on the Hot 100, but this is only due to five hours of tracking. This week, it should claim the top position.
Adele Is Releasing New Album Next Month
Easy On Me is Adele’s first single since 2015, and she is releasing her first album since 2015 soon, as well. This project is titled “30,” and is set for a November 19 release date. Back in 2015, her third album, “25,” was also put out in November. In an open letter penned to fans last week, Adele announced 30, and also detailed how her life has been, in creating this album, since 2015.
“I was certainly nowhere near where I’d hoped to be when I first started [this album] nearly 3 years ago. Quite the opposite actually. I rely on routine and consistency to feel safe, I always have. And yet there I was knowingly – willingly even, throwing myself into a maze of absolute mess and inner turmoil!
I’ve learned a lot of blistering home truths about myself along the way. I’ve shed many layers but also wrapped myself in new ones. Discovered genuinely useful and wholesome mentalities to lead with, and I feel like I’ve finally found my feeling again. I’d go as far as to say that I’ve never felt more peaceful in my life.
And so, I’m ready to finally put this album out.”

“I played it to Drake maybe last year when he was in town just to get… I’m like, ‘Do you think this is like, what people want or not want?’ And he was like, ‘Absolutely,’ No, I don’t send it around to various people being like, ‘Can I get your thoughts on this?’ It’s always just about how it makes me feel. Quality control is my forte. And I can write a song about my own experiences and my own life and stuff like that.”
