In a time where music labels are fighting against piracy and streaming services, it hasn’t stopped Sony making a deal of the century. It’s between Sony and you-know-who. That’s right, Adele will sign a $130 million contract with Sony.
This tops Whitney Houston’s $100 million contract with Arista Records in 2001. In fact, Adele will also be signing the biggest record deal by any female singer.
This now gives Sony the exclusive rights to release her music. This is certainly great for Adele. She has an amazing voice and presence and has earned her keep. She is deservingly the wealthiest female musician in Britain.
Adele has helped songwriters & producers make millions. Adele co-wrote each song on the album. Songwriters & producers have made almost $10 million in royalties so far. Adele’s ’25’ had a total of 13 producers. With that said, Adele is on top of a songwriters pitch list. Why? Millions are to be made.
Every time the clock ticks it seems Adele sells another million records. She did it again. Adele is set to sell another million albums in a week. All in all, Adele’s ’25’ could sell near 7 million copies by years end.
In a recent interview with Time Magazine, Adele says she quit social media in order to spend time writing a great album.
“How am I supposed to write a real record if I’m waiting for half a million likes on a #$%^! photo? That ain’t real”
Nearing 7 million albums sold in a quick short weeks, Adele is astonished with her recent success in America:
“I’m not even from America.” Maybe they think I’m related to the Queen. Americans are obsessed with the royal family.”
Other artists may heed Adele’s advice. Instead of spending hours tweeting, consider spending hours creating a real album.
Adele on YouTube, Adele on the Facebook news feed, Adele on top of Google searches, Adele on TV, Adele trending on Twitter, and Adele sells out tour. It’s Adele EVERYWHERE. Is Adele’s presence becoming overbearing? It doesn’t matter, she isn’t going anywhere, for at least a while.
As we speak, Adele is nearing 6 million copies of her latest ’25’. Miraculously, the album is selling near a million a week. Not the singles, but the entire album. No doubt, Adele will top the Forbes rich list in 2016. This a season that Adele will always remember. The season that Adele ruled the world.
