News: Adele’s 21 hits #1 on Australian Charts!
21 has achieved platinum sales in Australia, and single ‘Rolling In The Deep’ has gone gold.
Remote Control’s Marketing Director Steve Cross comments, “We’re pretty knocked out. We’re a five person company and in the 10 years we’ve been around we’ve had albums hit # 2 and # 3, but this is our first # 1. The album has been in the charts for 14 weeks (12 in the Top 10) but now it’s really taken off. Our publicists Ankia Peou and Nicole Jones deserve a lot of the credit, they have worked amazingly hard over the last few months and we’ve had incredible support from our distributors, Inertia and iTunes. Our partners at XL, the UK label, have a remarkable knack of bringing though great releases and we’ve had terrific success with The White Stripes, Vampire Weekend, Basement Jaxx, M.I.A and Radiohead, and they’ve done it again with Adele.”
With 21 having gone five times platinum in the UK and debuting at number 1 in the US, Canada, the UK and 12 other territories across the globe, Adele has stolen history and chart records from the likes of The Beatles, Madonna and The Corrs. Adele is undeniably a global pop sensation and the hottest artist in the world right now.
