    It's a good song but not as great as people are claiming it to be. She can and has done wayyyyyy better.

    Adele is incredibly talented but personally I've always found her music some hot trash.

    I can actually stand this song though, it's not bad at all.

    Im glad she's making her return. Can't see her not dropping a legendary album again. Too much talent. This song is good I'm not hooked on it though

    Dont really care about album sales usually but I wanna see what she does 1st week. Maybe 1 mill+ considering Taylor Swift did that

    :lol: at the hate in here. Her voice is more powerful and impactful than any active artist right now. Hello is flames. You guys recognize the cat from the video? It's Michael from The Wire.


    There's no way she'll come close to hitting Tay's numbers, especially when the first single was released just a few days ago and the album goes on sale in like 3 weeks. I don't think Hello is gonna have the same commercial success as Rolling In The Deep.....album sales are probably gonna reflect that.

    I just looked back at some numbers, and what's crazy to me is that 21 only sold 350k first week even after Rolling in the Deep's success.

    Drake sold 500k on a mixtape he announced on Twitter :lol: Don't know if it's because digital album sales weren't as popular 4-5 years ago or what.

    Like Sam Smith, being white has benefited her a lot. There have been some good discussions about this on Twitter recently for those that aren't plugged into social media.

    Sam Smith is trash. If he was black he'd still be trash. And he likes men. Not that there's anything wrong with that but let's just state facts.

    Adele being white has nothing to do with her success.

    Her voice is angelic and somehow has the power to pierce your soul's most vulnerable pockets. That's what makes her universally acclaimed.

    I remember like a month after my last breakup. I was partying in Denmark at a friend's wedding. I go to my room at 7 am and out of nowhere some drunk Dane blasts Adele on the speakers, as I'm trying to fall asleep. Suddenly, I get the rush of emotions and drunk dial my ex like 20 times on straight international rates. :lol:

    Adele is a bad girl, man. Shorty has unbelievable talent.
