    Also did you really pay 8.49 for those things ? I assume that is an 8 on the price sticker ?!
    No, they are like $2 each

    The vast amount of people went because of the original, not because she was in it.
    Of course people went for the Lion King and nostalgia. As every other movie it's the storyline that counts. You can have the biggest current actor and it doesn't matter, if people are not interested in the movie. Her fans came but that's not why it grossed 1.6 billion and was a huge success.
    ​​​​​​The album flopped because people don't care about Disney live action re-boot related music. B it's not in the film at all besides spirit and C it's afropop which isn't big to begin with. It's still a lot more successful than other albums by people 23 years into their career, a soundtrack at that. It's the 15th album of her career. It's OK if it doesn't sell 5m copies, I promise you that. B7 will come and as long as the quality is still there she'll extend her lagacy.

    Ariana's soundtrack album flopped harder and she is fine, so did Rihanna's. The world keeps spinning and one day you might even find the strength to not focus on things and people you hate so much

    Everyone knows it won't, but it definitely will sell more than any other artists album because the interest is still there.

    The fab base that does claim to sell loads with her next album are the hive, they said it about the Flop Lion king album, said it would be the biggest album of the year and win every music award it was nominated for.

    So what happened? Can't say it wasn't promoted when the movie was that big!
    Girl keep your little stan goggles and hate in the drawer. You're obsessed to be honest, when nobody mentioned that she is a flop your fave would drag you. I hope the rumors are true and your worst nightmare collab happens

    I'm just talking numbers with her and not shading. There will be plenty of people who expect 25 numbers and will write essays about just wait. I can't wait for the album. And as I've stated multiple times on this page, I think it will be a success either way! Bye

    Yes that's what I'm thinking. 10-15m WW would already be a great success. She was on a different level with 10m+in the US alone in no time. People would just need to adjust. I can already see the essays how 15m WW is a flop.

Her hype was bigger then and the physical market double the size probably. She will most likely still shit on everybody else but expecting this to move anything close to the amount of copies as 25 especially in the first few weeks is delusional.

    I can't wait it will be really interesting once she releases. I also think she might change her sound quite a bit so that will have an effect too

    Maybe you shouldn't compare local acts to a WW superstar who has the best selling album of the 21st century

    It's a totaly different scenario of you only cater to one or two markets.

    Also I'm not saying it's not going to be huge. I think it will compared to everybody else just not comparable to her last two albums.

    I would happy if she came close to '21' to '25' successwise again, but I don't expect it. On the other hand, there are many artists who are actually able to have one huge album after another (Helene Fischer, Pablo Alboran, Rasmus Seebach, Six 60), so let's wait and see how it'll turn out.

    So SyCo record company doesn't exist anymore, the doors was closed last year and artists on that label have moved over to other labels under Sony.

    No more crap music from Simon!

    North Korea threads.

    Is Adele over ?
    Adele underperforming. Why ?
    Adele drops 40 percent from last albums first week. What happened ?
    I was told Adele would never flop. OOPS.
    Can Adele recover ?
    Is Gaga more global than Adele ?
    Folklore outsold Adele. Why ?

    Those free streams really skew stuff tbh. I mean I listen to Levitating at least five times a day solely cos it is on THH, if it wasnt there theres no way I would seek it out. I am sure it is the same for millions of others. They arent sales really. Its like hearing something on the radio/ And i havent bought music in years, I just feel what i do is listen not purchase.

    anyway, adele's next era will decimate all existing streaming records. The way her previous 2 albums were doing, I could see her new album debuting with 300-400 million streams in the first week (on Spotify alone).

    it's not all about streaming, Adele is one of the few artists around that has the full demographic.

    Don't see how, when Adele has sold over 63 million albums, and well 70 million singles!
