We Break Down Adele’s ’25’ By The Numbers

Adele By The Numbers Feat

In the past month the world has entered an Adele frenzy so fervent it’s difficult to believe we went four years without a new album from the British singer. With her third studio 25 album dropping this past Friday, Adelemania came in like a tornado, but the kind we hope never ends.

Ahead of tonight’s premiere of Adele Live In London on CTV and CTV GO at 8E/5P, we’re taking a look back at the past month of Adele. What better way to examine the numerically inclined singer than to look at Adele by the numbers?
