Released last Friday, November 19, album 30 , the British singer’s fourth album, is about to hit the charts. The first days of the project on streaming services, as well as other indications suggest that it will register some very impressive numbers.

According to reports from Hits Daily Double , Adèle is on course for one of the biggest weeks of album sales. Indeed, 30 is currently in full deployment to go from 800 miles to 850 miles in its first week .
