The album was certified triple platinum in the UK, where it stayed for a year, making her the first artist ever to sell over 1 million albums based entirely on downloads. In 2010, Adele won two Grammy Awards for Best New Artist and Song of the Year for “Chasing Pavements.”
The following year, she won a further two Grammys for “Rolling in the Deep” and “Set Fire to the Rain” and awards for Album of the Year and Best Female Pop Vocal Performance. Her second album, “21,” was released in 2011 and sold over 4 million copies within its first week in Europe alone, and was certified four-times platinum by the BPI.
The album spawned the number-one single “Someone Like You” and top-five hit “Set Fire to Rain.”During this time, Adele broke records as the first female to have two UK number one albums in a row with her first two releases; she was also the first artist.
Adele’s first five studio albums were released to critical acclaim and numerous Grammy awards, with over 65 million units sold worldwide. Time magazine called her “25” album a masterpiece on par with the greatest classic-rock releases, while Rolling Stone declaimed that she’s one o the gifted artists in the world.
As a multiple award-winning singer and songwriter, Adele has made her mark in the music industry with her three platinum albums, 19 singles, and numerous music awards worldwide.
Her highly anticipated third studio album, “21,” was released in 2011 to global success. In 2008 Adele was awarded four Grammy Awards for Best New Artist, Record of the Year, Song of the Year, and Best Female Pop Vocal Performance – a personal record.

“Hello” peaked at number one in 29 countries and achieved the top-five position in another 18.
Adele has come a long way as a singer and songwriter and may well be taken as a good example of what it means to remain devoted to one’s art.
The songstress started singing in the blues bars of her hometown of Liverpool. Now, Adele Laurie Blue Adkins is one of the most accomplished female singers on the world stage. She has earned nine Grammy Awards and countless other prizes for her soulful take on love and life in her songs.
Adele’s standing, expectedly, has had her fair share of interest from the bods out there. Likewise, Adele’s relationship with Skepta has been of great interest to the public, and we doubt the verdict on their relationship will ever be final.
Adele and Skepta would not say they were close friends, even though they have worked together on two songs. Skepta helped Adele write “White Noise.” And Adele has Skepta featured on “Sky High.”
Adele kept her personal life to herself until she started dating Simon Konecki in 2011. Her relationship with Simon inspired the songs “Someone like You,” “Water Under the Bridge,” and “Remedy.”
