    '21' and '25' were hugely successful, without a doubt, but neither of them stayed in any national top 10 for at least 2 years. It's a very, very rare achievement, but Ed Sheeran's 'x' and 'Divide' achieved it in multiple countries. 'x' even stayed in the Irish top 10 for more than 3 years. Based on that, I would say that it's acceptable to say that Ed Sheeran and Adele are in the same league successwise.
    That's because Ed never has huge sales like Adele and people buy his albums as they hear the singles & songs. He doesn't and will never have the hype Adele has, no one will.

    • What matters is the sales, and Adele is in a league of her own.

        Well Adele just broke the one day Spotify record with her single.

          Album sales i would say; for today's standards they are almost non-existent as only a few acts sell well. Adele, on the other hand, sells loads of albums.

              No denying that - what I meant was that initial sales of her lead singles aside, Ed seems to be more consistent with the high chart positions and sales of his singles.

                He has better promotion. Adele didn't have that with her previous label. We'll see what happens with her new team.

                  Promo doesn't guarantee success though. People relate to his songs, like it or not. That's why people buy tickets to his tour and he can easily sell out stadium shows in different parts of the world. Adele can have an enormous tour if she wants, but that's not who she is and for her a Vegas residency makes sense. She can also do a London residency for UK and European shows.

                        Imagine Adele having promoted properly all her singles from 25 and not just the lead single; her overall sales would have been even bigger.
                        As of Ed, generic songs tend to relate with many people.
                        Now, about touring, i remember back in the Fame/Monster era people criticized Lady GaGa for greed. However, one can say that as long as the demand is high, the artist just wants to please the fans...

                          That's an excuse for people whose faves are flopping in touring department.

                                  Well to be fair I have to say Ed isn't off the topic for 6 years like Adele was, and his Albums boom also after two years of abstinence. I won't say she would even have less success than Ed when she'd release in the same two-year rhythm like Ed's doing but it is more "special" with Adele because of her long abstinence..

                                    • My first thoughts about this song was umm ok, not surprising song, then ok, this song is a grower , 5 days after the release, I completely forgot about this song. 5/10

                                        FFS, stop bringing Ed Sheeran into this topic. This is Adele's thread and it's not chart analysis thread. Nobody cares about Ed in this thread.

                                            At first I thought okay the same formula again, now I'm not mad at all. Though I hope 2nd single will be much better

                                              People on here talk about Taylor Swift, Lady Gaga, Dido, Ed Sheeran... but you only react aggresive towards theMathematician? Obsessed?

                                                yeah, my bad, but he is reccuring, he often releases Songs between the Albums and is also very present. Adele drops an Album, has a show for one year and after that she get's missed for 5 years

                                                    He released "No.6 Collaborations Project" about two years ago...
