releasing an album too often results in a loss in quality, like Rihanna and Lady Gaga
in my opinion, the only worthy song from Rihanna's new album is We Found Love, and her abum is already under Adele's this week, and in billboard too....
Lagy Gaga had some great songs in Born This Way, but no real ultra hit like she had in 2009/2010
on the other hand Adele relased 21, and for me, it's been since 2004 (Avril, Evanescence, Green Day etc.) to listen to such a powerful album
Born This Way released as a #1 breaking single week sales record for a female and the song went on to be #1 for 6 week straight on billboard. Making it her most sucsessful song relased to date. All the other singles have charted in the top selling year end chart on Billnoard. She is the only artist with 5 songs in the list. All her songs were hits in the club. People also forget that Gaga sells more WW then in the U.S. She is bigger everywhere else then in the U.S by the numbers. Adele only has 2 hit songs despite the huge album sales.
there's a diffrence between listening to an artist and listening to a song
if you want to listen to a song, you buy the single, if you want the artist you buy the album
big artists sell lots of albums, therefore Adele succeeded as an artist with her latest album, and while Gaga still succeeded (of course) the album did below her 1st album
Michael Jackson and Ketty Perry have the record for most number ones from a sinlge album, that doesn't mean Ketty Perry is as huge as Michael, for god's sake, Michael had huge album sales, people prefer to buy the album instead of the single
if people got Adeles album, it means they want to hear to more than 1 or 2 songs from the album
