Adele's Hello is number one after smashing various chart records


Was there ever any doubt?

Adele is back at the top of the Official Singles Chart with her monster comeback single Hello.

She's smashed records all over the place, with other artists basically competing for the scraps left in her wake.

Not bad for the singer who only a week ago told Nick Grimshaw: "I feel so sick. I'm so nervous."

So, here are the numbers that put Adele firmly back on top of the music world.

Hello sold a whopping 333,000 in a week

That includes a staggering 259,000 downloads - and makes it the biggest number one single for... well, only three years actually. James Arthur (remember him?) sold 490,000 of his X Factor single Impossible in December 2012.

But streaming was even more mind-bending - 7.32 million plays

That's almost double the previous record held by Justin Bieber's What Do You Mean? which had 3.87 million plays in a week last month.

And the numbers just keep going up and up...


Two people every second were shazaming Hello

That meant a total of 200,000 in the first 24 hours of the song's release - a record for the music recognition app.

Here's a really big one. Her video got 27.7 million views in one day

That worked out as one million views an hour on YouTube in the first two days of it being released.

By the time Adele topped the chart, the video had almost 150 million views

Not that she needs it but why not give those numbers a boost right now...

Unsurprisingly, Adele's getting a lot of love from the music industry.

"The success of Hello this week underlines what an extraordinary artist Adele is - a once in a generation artist, who appeals to kids, teenagers, mums, dads, aunts, uncles, grandmas and granddads," says Martin Talbot from the Official Charts Company.

One last stat for fact fans: If you don't include X Factor/Pop Idol singles, charity records and Christmas number ones, Hello is second biggest 'regular' number one of the millennium.

It's only beaten by Shaggy's It Wasn't Me, which managed 345,000 sales in a week back in 2001.
