Hot on the heels of her six Grammy awards and two Brit Awards, the 23-year-old Adele made music history yesterday by being the first artist ever to go double platinum (2 million downloads) on Apple’s iTunes Store in the U.S., according to The Loop.
What’s more, the soulful singing phenomenon has been the focus of engagement rumors, as she was recently photographed wearing what seemed to be a large yellow diamond on her ring finger. Adele put the rumors to rest yesterday, telling The Mirror that the ring was simply a fashion accessory and joking that she wanted boyfriend Simon Konecki to buy her an engagement ring so big “you can see it from space.”
Colombia Records also announced this week that Adele’s album, 21, has been No. 1 on the Billboard 200 album chart for 21 weeks, making it the longest running No. 1 album by a woman in Billboard history. The record had been held since 1992 by the late Whitney Houston’s soundtrack album, The Bodyguard.
In honor of Adele’s sweep of six major Grammy categories, including “Record of the Year,” “Album of the Year” and “Best Performance,” we present her rousing rendition of the 2012 Grammy “Song of the Year.”
Performing live on the Late Show With David Letterman from this past Tuesday, here’s Adele singing “Rolling in the Deep.”
