This week: An Adele Anniversary and Olivia Rodrigo’s Debut
Don’t You Remember
This weekend marks ten years since the release of 21, Adele’s record-shattering second album. (Yes, it’s true, an entire decade has passed since you wept to Someone Like You. We’re sorry to once again be the ones to remind you of time’s cruel and swift march.)
The best-selling album of the 21st century couldn’t have come from a more down-to-earth person, and perhaps part of the appeal (other than the devastatingly beautiful voice) was that it seemed your funniest friend was the one topping the charts worldwide. Everyone loves Adele, and for good reason.
To celebrate this milestone and to tide you over while you wait for her (imminent?) new album, we’ve put together an Adele At Her Best playlist, which you can find over at Top Playlists / Featured.
And speaking of breaking records, Olivia Rodrigo is doing just that with her debut single Drivers License. The star of Disney Channel’s High School Musical: The Musical: The Series (that is indeed the show’s name and not a typo) broke single-day and first-week streaming records and topped the charts in seven countries with the song she says was influenced by Taylor Swift and Lorde. If you have teenagers in your house and haven’t already heard it blaring from their bedroom, we’ve got it for you – simply search for “Olivia Rodrigo Drivers License” on ROXi.
