The 3 Countries Where Adele Isn't No.1
To tell you they're sorry for breaking your heart, Adele. WHAT!? Adele didn't achieve world domination. She may be the biggest star in ALMOST every country in the world however three countries seem to disagree. They're too preoccupied with their own music tastes and Adele just isn't one of them. In 29 international markets, Adele managed to rank No.1 in 26 of them which is basically unheard of. She's the No.1 artist in 110 countries on iTunes worldwide except for three. '3' really isn't a magic number for this pop star. Despite her record breaking album '25' : 3 million copies of the album sold in the first week of American sales alone, being the biggest-selling album released since 2011, the most sold album yearly since 2004, and broke records in how quickly her European and North American tours sold out, Adele pretty much wins...99% of the time. Thanks to Fusion.com, data was collected to show that these countries have different chart toppers and their fans wouldn't want it any other way. These countries have another preference... South Korea Why they don't prefer Adele? KPOP! Its the Korean Pop sensation that seems to dominate the music tastes of the country. The singers are hot. The music makes you want to start dancing. The music videos are strangely mesmerizing. And you've never had a party without wanting to scream at the top of your lungs to the clever lyrics that most Americans don't understand (aka Gangnam Style anyone?). Also, one must take into consideration that Koreans chart differently than most other Western countries. They have : domestic album sales, international sales, and a synthesized chart. Fusion.com found that Adele may be winning over their international chart however her streaming and album sales in South Korea are no comparison to the outstanding domestic sales of KPOP within the country. Here are Korean's top albums: - "The Most Beautiful Life," Pt 2 by the Bangtan Boys - "MATRIX" by B.A.P. - "Dear Santa - X Mas Special" by Girls Generation TTS Japan Why they don't prefer Adele? Japanese only track physical sold copies and as of now, Adele has only sold enough to make her the 7th highest album as of Dec. 7, 2015. Japanese also love KPOP but they're not as influential. It's also important to take note that digital downloads in the Japan music market outsell albums by 400% according to Fusion's research. Here are the following albums that have outsold Adele : - "For You" by Infinite - "Chandelier" by Black Number - "Sight of Blue" by Motohiro Hata Greece Why they don't prefer Adele? Blame it on the way they chart. They tracked how many '25' albums were shipped into the country instead of how many albums were sold total. Talk about bizarre. Even with Greece's adoration for American and British music, Adele only hit the No. 2 spot on Greek charts. They may track domestic and foreign music sales however their marks are harshly skewed. Sorry, Adele. The data didn't help you. Here are the albums that topped Adele: - "Ap' To Vorra Mehri to Noto" by Vasilis Karras - "M' Agapouses Ki Anthize" by Eleanora Zouganeli - "Nikos Vertis" by Nikos Vertis So really, other than MAYBE South Korea, Adele has won over everyone except for KPOP fans. There's always next time, Adele.
I am BACK!!!!!!!!
Hello all my vingle family I have missed all of you soooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo much!!! I have crawled out of my cave and greeted the light that is this home of ours!!!! First Off: So Much Has Happened!!! After graduation I did my whole study up on writing and all that. I tell you what, you can never go into anything ANYTHING with the idea that it will be peachy keen and easy, because 10 to 1 it isn't what you thought. I fell in and out of hope and discouragement and lost a lot of nerve before I found it again when I turned 20..... So, Turning 20 That was interesting considering my birthday is on the 11th of February, and Deadpool came out that Sunday on Valentine's for all those peeps that needed some form of a date. I ended up getting a date to that movie. AMAZING MOVIE BY THE WAY. However, that dating thing didn't go so well. Basically, I tried some serious dating and got some serious heart scarage, but hey, what is love and what is life without the pain and risk. I am working on me for now, but this heart of mine is never closed!!! And Now... I have started something. My dream has been met half way, and I am gonna keep meeting it. Properly, I have published an eBook and I am so proud of myself. I am a published writer because I wanted it to be so, I found the nerve after faltering, and I made it happen. It may not be big, and it may only be a start and a baby step but I took that step and imma keep walking. Thanks to all I have encountered on this journey known vaguely as life, all my vingle family, all those who tagged me in stuff even though it seemed like I fell off the earth, you all are beautiful to me and I love y'all!!!! link to book: http://www.lulu.com/shop/mary-sew-roberts/matters-of-the-heart-an-anthology-of-love-poems/ebook/product-22679456.html To tie this off (βˆ†βˆ†βˆ† Love him still!!!!!!) Here is me saying, "Yes, I am still alive," and that I am glad to be back in the saddle again!!!!
