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.

5 Adele Lyrics Made For Shedding Tears From Album '25'
If you haven't heard Adele's latest album "25", I urge you to do so. Although it will remind you of that ex that did you wrong, you'll oddly miss them and every guy who will come into your life in the future for a full 45 minutes [the length of the album]. Each song will make you feel things you haven't felt in ages, it's beautifully sad. If you're not one to shed tears, listen to this album and that will no longer be the case. Tissues should be in your possession before pressing play, but don't worry -- despite the tears you'll enjoy it. Adele has the ability to take you places you've been and places you've never been. Just call it a journey. If you're up for the ride and don't mind a couple tears, keep scrolling to see some of the most heartbreaking [yet beautiful] lyrics from Adele's album. Track #6: Water Under The Bridge "If you're gonna let me down, let me down gently / don't pretend that you don't want me" Track #7: River Lea "But my heart is a valley, it's so shallow and man made / I'm scared to death if I let you in that you'll see I'm just a fake" Track #8: Love In The Dark "It is the world to me / that you are in my life / But I want to live / And not just survive" Track #9: Million Years Ago "I miss the air, I miss my friends / I miss my mother; I miss it when / Life was a party to be thrown / But that was a million years ago" Track #10: All I Ask "No one knows me like you do / And since you're the only one that matters, tell me, who do I run to?" Now go listen to the album It's okay to cry.

Rago Arts and Auction center had tonal sculptures of Harry Bertoia at auction. Harry Bertoia was a notable sound workmanship stone worker, visual craftsman, and furniture architect. The craftsman was brought into the world in Italy and moved to America at 15 years old. Bertoia attended a university with specialists like Walter Gropius, Charles and Ray Eames, and Eero Saarinen. In spite of the fact that Bertoia was keen on expressions and furniture plan, his genuine ability was in sound model. He frequently bowed or extended bits of metal while testing in his workshop.

Music When The Lights Go Out: Songs To Help You Sleep
There is nothing worse than laying in your bed trying to fall asleep. Your eyes are darting around under the lids. The lights are dim, and yet, your brain won't shut off. The impulses are still firing and yet your body is exhausted. You want nothing more than to drift off to dreamland. Music is a huge deal as far as psychology goes. It can help with productivity, working out and even sleep. When you're having trouble drifting into subconscious bliss turn on these tunes and put your mind at ease. Before you know it, you'll be dreaming with the best of them. Instead of water sounds try... House of Cards by Radiohead Radiohead is a great band to listen to when you want to chill out entirely. Their music is cinematic and atmospheric, which is great for catching Z's. Radiohead's music fills the room, and will create a sonic coccoon for your slumber. Totally cool right? House of Cards is a slow building song with almost a lullaby effect. Thom Yorke's haunting vocal soothes as the song ebbs and flows like waves. It's totally better than contrived water sounds. Check out the OK Computer album too. It's full of grade A sleepy time tracks. Instead of rain and thunder sounds try... I Am The Rain by Peter Doherty This song always calms me down. It is melancholy at its height. It's a dreamy acoustic track that even has rain sounds in some of the background. It has a lot of elements that remind you of that chilly spring rain that comes when everything is falling down. It honestly is beautiful, and yes I have a bias towards this artist but still..you can't deny the power of a brilliant acoustic ballad as far as sleep goes. If you want more, check out his solo album Grace / Wastelands it's largely acoustic and very mellow. Great songwriting too. I've fallen asleep to this album many times. Instead of white noise try... Stay Covered by Thirty Seconds to Mars This may be a more edgy and deliberate version of Rihanna's smash hit, but it really gets the job done as far as sleep goes. Jared Leto's voice is a lot more gritty and steady than Rihanna's and the subtle backing provides a really smooth soundscape. If you let yourself concentrate on the driving beat and subtle lyrics of this song you'll fall asleep in no time. I highly recommend Thirty Seconds To Mars' album Love Lust Faith and Dreams, there are a lot of atmospheric tracks that build just like the first song on this list. I think it's good to have music that fills the room, it creates a safer space and enables your mind to shut off faster. Instead of animal sounds try... Number One Party Anthem by Arctic Monkeys This song's title couldn't be further from it's musical content. This song is a slow burner, like a candle being blown out at two A.M. It simmers as it goes on. This song is a rarity in the Monkeys' catalog. And it stands out as one of their best. Alex Turner's dreamy vocals fit perfectly with the acoustic vibe and are a sure fire way to help you get some rest. Try out their album A.M. which features a lot of slick tracks with even vocal quality and driving beats. This sort of regulation will help with sleep. What are your favorite sleepytime tracks? I'd love to hear from @nicolejb @allischaaff @terricariley @InPlainSight and @buddyesd and any other music lovers out there!
