Adele Says Hello To No. 1 Debut On Singles Chart
The tally gives Adele the biggest opening week for a No. 1 UK single in three years, dating back to James Arthur's X Factor winner's single "Impossible" (490,000 sales) in December of 2012.
The singer also beat the previous streaming record held by Justin Bieber's "What Do You Mean?", which recorded 3.87 million streams in a single week last month.
"Hello" is the lead single from Adele's long-awaited third album, "25", which was produced by Greg Kurstin and is due November 20. Watch the video for the song here.
