Worth a listen
The big girl comes back with her biggest hit ever. “Hello” is now considered a ballad rocket.
I think most people know who I am talking about. Yes, it is Adele. I believe nobody can accomplish what she did.
Her first album “21” became an internationally phenomenon with a number of hits. It brought her six Grammy awards and numerous awards from other reputable ceremonies. Then, when she was at the height of fame and success, she surprisingly took a long break.
After almost four years, Adele has once again surprised everyone with a new single “Hello,” released at the end of October. Fans have not been disappointed. During an era of auto-tune music, most pop singers use the support of machines and technology to make their vocals sound good. “Hello” is an exception.
As always, it seems Adele wants people to feel what she feels. She uses her natural voice without the aid of machines to express the real feelings of a woman missing her lover. The song evokes sadness and desperation.
Just one week after the release date, “Hello” set new records.
The song set a record for the most U.S. downloads sold in a week with 1.11 million, according to Nielsen Music. The video of this song hit 100 million views in the first week and became one of the most-watched music video debuts of all time according to YouTube. “Hello” is now No.1 on Billboard’s Hot 100 Debut.
I love this song, the video, the lyrics and the rhythm. However, one small thing which makes me feel disappointed is “Hello” does not have a real hook like her previous songs.
Still, it’s a good song worth a listen.
