Adele is on a role: first her sophomore album 21 smashed Madonna’s record (with Immaculate Collection) for spending the longest time at the number one position in the UK charts for a female solo artist. And now the album has notched up the most consecutive weeks at number one for a solo artist’s studio album in UK charts, ever. Neophyte pop star Eliza Doolittle recently described Adele as “incredibly wise” and you can certainly hear it in her voice as she belts out blues-infused tracks like Rolling In The Deep and Someone Like You. See and hear her in the flesh this week.
