LONDON (Reuters) – Music star Adele flew straight to the top of the UK charts on Friday with her new album “30”, marking a successful and record-breaking comeback.

One of the world’s best-selling singer-songwriters, the Grammy Award winner released her fourth studio album last week, with critics and fans praising her honesty on the record. she said she was done to explain the divorce with her son Angelo, 9 years old.

First-week sales for “30” totaled 261,000, making it the biggest opening week of the year to date, the Official Charts Company said. The number is the largest for an album since Ed Sheeran’s “Chia” in 2017 and the largest for a female solo album since Adele’s last single, “25” in 2015.

“It became Adele’s fourth UK No. 1 album; She has now reached #1 on the Official Albums Chart with all of her studio albums, a record for a female act,” the Official Charts Company said in a statement.

“All of Adele’s previous albums are also on the chart this week; 25 (No. 15), 21 (No. 18) and 19 (No. 31). ”

“30” was also the most streamed album of the past week, grossing 55.7 million streams across its 12 tracks, the Official Charts Company said.

Famous for her ballads about pain and nostalgia, Adele also topped the UK singles chart for its sixth week with “Easy On Me”, the first track to be released since “30”.

The song has surpassed her 2011 megahit “Someone Like You” to become the longest-running number one on the Official Singles Chart. “Oh My God” and “I Drink Wine,” two other singles from “30,” also reached the top five.

The 33-year-old is expected to top the charts elsewhere. Earlier this week, Billboard said “30” was the best-selling album in the US after just three days, citing initial data.

Like her previous albums, “30” is named after an important age in Adele’s life. The singer announced her separation from husband Simon Konecki in 2019.
