Adele Covers EW's Special Music Issue!

Vocal prodigy Adele covers EW's special music issue revealing how sometimes thee most unexpected successes come from thee most genuine places sometimes.

When EW interviewed Adele last spring in the garden of her hotel in Munich, the British singer-songwriter admitted she hadn’t thought her recently released second album, 21, would sell many copies in America... “I was saying, ‘I don’t think this record is going to do anything,” the chanteuse recalled. “I can’t feel the buzz in America.’”

The cover story of Entertainment Weekly‘s Special Music Issue details how 21 became such a blockbuster, and the ways in which that success has affected so many aspects of the music industry, from the songs you hear on the radio today to the hunt for the “next Adele” being conducted by frantic A&R men from every label, particularly in the singer’s homeland. As one U.K. talent scout told EW... “Obviously in meetings there’s a lot of ‘Why didn’t you sign Adele?’ Everyone goes out, tail in between their legs, and says, ‘Right, give me a girl singer with a voice!’”

Rob Stringer, chairman and CEO of Columbia Records, told the mag about the 23-year-old singer’s smash album 21...“When everybody heard the record, they knew it was special. But not one person could honestly tell you they thought it would sell this many."

Also in the magazine's 30 Greatest Artists Right Now list features Taylor Swift, Drake, Carrie Underwood, Katy Perry, Jack White, The Black Keys, Nicki Minaj, Mumford & Sons, and Rihanna!
