Adele Smashes Record For Biggest Album Sales Week With 25

(popmusiclife) Adele's "25" has officially set a new record for the biggest single sales week in US music history. According to Billboard, the UK singer's third album has sold at least 2,433,000 in pure album sales in slightly more than three days to beat previous record holder NSYNC.

The boy band's 2000 release, "No Strings Attached", sold 2,416,000 sales to establish the single-week record for an album since Nielsen began tracking sales in 1991.

Prior to 1991, there was no authoritative music sales tracking service in the US and so it was mostly unknown how many copies of an album or song/single were sold in a single week.

To date, "25" is on track to capture an estimated 42 percent of recorded music sales this week. Adele's unprecedented domination with "25" has forced music industry forecasters to readjust their original estimate of 2.9 million copies sold this week to an even 3 million. Read more here.

Meek Mill Reveals New Drake Diss Track 'Winnin'

( Meek Mill is not finished taking stabs at Drake. He and Houston duo, Sauce Twinz, bonded over their dislike for Drake in the newly released song, 'Winnin."

In the artwork for the new song, released Monday (Nov. 23), there is a scoreboard with Streets vs. Geeks. Under the "Streets" team, there is 3 points on the board and a character of a scowling bad boy child with hat cocked to the side. Under the "Geeks" side is an image of the wise owl licking a lollipop from the decades-old Tootsie Pop campaign.

The owl, of course, is also the symbol of Drake's OVO brand. Back in September, Sauce Twinz jumped into the Drake-Mill beef with a remix to "Back to Back" titled 'Wack To Wack," in which he went at Drake for "Stealing H-Town culture" and letting another man "pee on him."

Lana Del Rey's Ex Was Blindsided By Break Up

( Lana Del Rey's ex-boyfriend, Barrie-James O'Neill, is still smarting about their split. O'Neill, who was once a member of the band Kassidy, is now saying he found out that he got dumped by Del Rey in an unusual manner.

In a recent interview with The Scottish Sun (via NME) O'Neill said that he got wind of their breakup from his cousin who had read an interview with Del Rey.

"It all happened when I went to London, as she was staying for a few days," O'Neill said. "But she couldn't stay as she had to do a big interview in America for her new album which was coming out. I was just chilling out in the hotel and out the blue, I got a message."

He says he was blindsided by the news. "Sorry that you and the missus have broken up," his cousin's text message read. "I was like 'That's news to me-where did you hear that?' And it was on this website. I'm thinking, It's a load of s- and gossip. But it wasn't. That's how I found out." Read more here.

Pusha T Plans Cruel Summer Pt. 2, Mini Movie

( Pusha T stopped by the Play.It's Rap Radar Podcast to talk new G.O.O.D. Music priorities, Diddy's motivations, two new albums and the mini-movie that will accompany the sounds.

If you were unaware, Pusha T is the new president of Kanye West's G.O.O.D. Music, and during the interview, he ran down the label priorities to hosts Rap Radar hosts Elliott Wilson and Brian (B. Dot) Miller.

"This is my wish list, it's all about getting out my album--these two albums--getting out a Big Sean album," he said. "And my wish list is getting out a Cruel Summer album Part Two."

Cruel Summer, the G.O.O.D. Music collabo album featuring all-star cast of Kanye West, Pusha T, Kid Cudi, John Legend, and more--was released in 2012.

When Wilson asked Pusha why Cruel Summer failed to sell well, given the album's star power, Pusha pointed to the free records they shared with fans each Friday during the crew's "G.O.O.D. Music Fridays" promotion.

"I think we gave away all the records," he said. "What people don't realize is, I love that record. I love that album. It was a top representation of G.O.O.D. Music as a whole. And it was great rap s***. But we started a thing with the G.O.O.D. Friday thing and we couldn't turn it off." Read more and listen to the full interview here.

Sam Hunt Meets 9-Year-Old Fan Battling Cancer

( Earlier this year, nine-year-old Cadence Fox missed Sam Hunt's performance in Atlanta because her radiation treatment had been moved up, WAGA-TV reports.

The Eatonton, Georgia, resident had to travel to Houston, Texas, for her six-week installment of radiation but was most upset that she missed seeing Hunt.

On Wednesday (Nov. 18), a local photographer aptly named Brandy Angel secured three tickets for Cadence, her mother and her sister to attend Hunt's performance at the Morgan County Cultural Center. The blessings didn't stop there, Cadence also got to meet Hunt.

"Sam was absolutely amazing with Cadence and gave her memories she will never forget. He told her she was beautiful and she won best dressed for the night," Angel told the TV station. "He signed her hat and made her feel so special and he probably has no idea how much good he did through that small act." Read more here.

UFC Star Holly Holm Didn't Know Who Beyonce Was

( "Beyonce, who?" UFC fighter Holly Holm had an introduction fail when meeting the superstar and her husband Jay-Z this past Saturday in Las Vegas.

Holm met Jay-Z and Beyonce backstage at the fight between Miguel Cotto and Canelo. Holm explained the awkward moment, saying, 'I meet Jay Z and he says, 'This is my wife,' and I'm like, 'Oh, hi, what's your name? Because that's what I do when I meet someone's wife."

She continued, "And as I'm shaking her hand, I'm thinking, 'Why did I just say that? Why did I just say that to Beyonce?' And then Jay Z's asking me about the fight and I can't even focus on what he's saying because I just put my foot in my mouth. I literally have to interrupt him. I'm like, 'I'm really sorry,' and I go back to Beyonce and I'm like, 'I can't believe I just did that.' She goes, 'Oh no, it's fine.' I'm like, 'No, I really, really'it's such an honor to meet you.'"

In the trailer Robin says to Alice, "I know breaking up sucks, but you know what's even worse? Wasting a night in New York City. Let me teach you how to be single." Robin shares her methods of getting free drinks which include flirting with guys, leaving your wallet and using what she calls their "sausage wallet."

Alice fails miserably at that so the next thing she learns is about how to text guys back. Robin expresses that the rules to this is to text back four hours later and never use an emoji. Read more here.

Video Of Adele's Tonight Show Appearance Goes Online

(popmusiclife) Adele was a featured guest and performer on NBC's The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon on Monday night and video from her appearance has been posted online.

The UK singer joined the host for an interview segment and played "Box Of Lies" - a regular game/feature on the show - before performing "Water Under The Bridge" from "25."

Adele revealed that her first attempt at her third album was not met with positive vibes during a preview meeting with her manager and legendary producer Rick Rubin.

"They just weren't feeling it," explained Adele. "Rick said 'I don't believe you.' He wasn't being mean. He was like, 'If you want to put this out you can put it out but I don't believe you.' And he was a huge part to do with my second album, '21.'

"I didn't love the record. It was songs, not the record. It was just some songs I was writing for this record." Asked by Fallon if she rewrote or scrapped the songs they three weren't thrilled with, Adele said "No, they're away, they're hiding; they've been banished. They're not allowed. They weren't good enough." Watch video of her appearance here.
