Adele’s ‘Easy On Me’ Is Powering to No. 1 In U.K.

Adele has been sorely missed in the U.K., where her comeback track is hurtling to the top spot.

Based on sales and streaming data for the first 48 hours of the chart week, Adele’s “Easy on Me” has racked up 70,000 chart sales in the U.K. and is on track to record the biggest opening week for any single this year.

Currently, “Easy on Me” is outperforming the rest of the Top 10 combined, according to the OCC, the national charts compiler.

If it holds its course, it would be Adele’s third U.K. chart-topper, following “Somebody Like You” (2011) and “Hello” (2015).

Since it dropped Oct. 14, “Easy on Me” has already broken streaming globally on several platforms, and powered her previous albums up the U.K. chart.

“Easy on Me” set the new record for global streams on Spotify in a single day, received “the most first-day Alexa song requests in Amazon Music history,” and its set to make a “splashy” start on the Billboard Hot 100, a chart she has led on four separate occasions.

It’s the lead track from the north Londoner’s forthcoming fourth album, 30, slated for release Nov. 19.

The Official U.K. Singles Chart is published late Friday, local time.
