Adele’s New Song “Easy On Me” Has Already Broken A Record

October 15, 2021 / Posted by:

Adele is back with her new single which is going to absolutely DOMINATE easy-listening stations and waiting rooms the world over for the next decade to come. Easy On Me is easy on the ears, almost too much so but I’m not here to drag Adele music since that is against the law of the internet. And also I’m fully aware that as soon as I learn the lyrics, I will be scream crying this song in my car about a relationship I’ve never even had (Chris Evans needs to stop playing me piano through my phone!).

Ahead of her fourth studio album, 30, coming out on November 19, 33-year-old Adele dropped the first single and its video. The video was directed by Xavier Dolan who also directed Hello. It opens with Adele leaving some kind of potentially luxurious but seemingly rundown cabin in the woods in black and white, and sis, if this was the only house she could afford in London it makes sense why she moved to Los Angeles. As Adele leaves, she answers a call and gives a cheeky nod to her previous smash hit single when the person on the other line can’t hear her, and she goes: “Here we go again.” Adele drives off with the last of her stuff and moody camera shots and close-ups ensue. If this woman will serve us one thing (besides flaw-free vocals) it’s a smokey eye and serious eyeliner game. The video eventually turns to color and the wind blows sheet music around, etc, etc. So your typical Adele video: wind, smokey eyes, vocals.

Fans noticed a continued narrative from her videos, showing how Adele built a house in her video for Rolling In The Deep, moved into it in Hello, and then had to move out in Easy On Me:

Uproxx says that the song is already breaking records, typical.

Adele reportedly broke the record for the fastest song to reach No. 1 on iTunes’ US chart with “Easy On Me.” According to the Twitter account @chartdata, which delivers weekly Billboard chart updates and often reports about unique occurrences on various music charts, “Easy On Me” reached No. 1 in just three minutes to break the record. The previous record-holder for this achievement was Ariana Grande whose “Positions” track hit No. 1 on the US iTunes charts in under ten minutes. iTunes or Apple has yet to confirm the new record.

And Adele did an interview with BBC Radio1 this morning about the release of her new single, where she said she was ready to release 30 last year but the pandemic was not the vibe. She said the lead single was the first song she wrote for the album and it’s about giving someone some space when they’re going through a rough time. via Mashable:

“I definitely started some fights post my relationship with my son’s dad with other people. Normally I’m very not confrontational but you can just initiate something and be like, “Well hang on a minute, go easy on me.” Just like, bear with me while I try and find my feet in a situation… There’s something that’s really hopeful about it as well as sad. I obviously bawled my eyes out when I was writing it and when I was singing it for the recording. There’s an element of hope in it which in turn gave me hope because I was at my wit’s end in the beginning of 2019.”

Here’s her full interview:

Welp, even though the financial settlement of Adele’s divorce from Simon Konecki isn’t public and we’ll never know how much money she lost to her ex, it really doesn’t matter. She’ll make it back in no time. When 30 comes out, she may finally be able to move out of the slums of Beverly Hills and into a $200 million home in London! Then she can really say she’s made it.
