Video: ‘Someone Like You’

Months after premiering ‘Someone Like You’, Adele finally got around to making an official music video.

It’s real simple. Adele walks around looking sad. It’s in black and white. The camera pans around quickly. Adele looks sad again while pensively looking out to the water. She walks and looks sad.

Recovery Sells 1,000,000 Digital Copies

Another milestone was passed in music today as Billboard reports that Eminem’s album Recovery, surpasses a million digital downloads. The album is the first to do so in the United States since digital album sales began to be tracked in 2005.

I was actually surprised to read that only 12 albums have ever sold over 500,000 digital copies. Physical singles sales have dwindled down to nothing thanks to digital singles, so  I assumed that more albums would be selling digitally.

This is another huge accolade for Eminem, who continues to impress with Recovery. The album really has only had two hits songs, yet it Continue reading

Billboard Update

As expected, Adele notches her seventh week at number 1 on the Hot 100. ‘Rolling in the Deep’ gained another 1% of audience impressions this week, bringing the song to 153 million audience impressions. Honestly, even with ‘Moves Like Jagger’ shooting to number 1 on itunes, Adele will be number 1 again next week. With the massive amount of radio support that increases each week, it’s going to be hard for anyone to dethrone Adele just yet.

The real chart news belongs to Katy Perry, who saw her single ‘Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F)’ advance from 31-5, giving Perry her fifth consecutive top 5 single from ‘Teenage Dream’. According to Billboard, the song saw a 259% gain in digital sales, Continue reading

Billboard Update

Adele logs in her sixth week at number 1 on the Billboard Hot 100. The song shows no sign of slowing down, gaining 1% in audience impressions this week. ‘Rolling in the Deep’ is a hit on multiple formats, which makes its staying power even stronger. At this rate Adele will not only claim the most successful charting album on the Billboard 200 (10 weeks thus far), but also the most successful single of the year. As of now, ‘Rolling’ is tied with ‘Born This Way’ for longest number 1 of 2011. That will change next week I’m sure.

Nicki Minaj scores her first solo top 10 hit as ‘Super Bass’ moves 11-10 this week. The song makes a huge jump on the radio chart (31-14), and is up 8% in digital sales. Nicki was last seen in the top 10 at number 6 with Trey Songs on ‘Bottoms Up’ and at number 2 with Young Money on ‘Bedrock’. If she still plans on releasing ‘Fly’ as her Continue reading

‘Rolling in the Deep’- Adele (Video Included)

Rating: A

I have been meaning to write a review on ‘Rolling in the Deep’ since the song first came out in November, but time has gotten the best of me. After premiering the video to the song yesterday I thought it would be the perfect time to redeem myself by posting both a review and the music video.

Adele has become a critic favorite after her success debut album ’19’. The singer defied all the odd by breaking the US market with her powerhouse voice and style. She has won two Grammy’s so far for Best New Artist and Best Pop Vocal Performance.
