It hasn't even been a month since Adele's newest single, "Hello" was released and it is already killing it. In its first week, it sold more than 1.1 million digital songs and became the first song ever to break the 1 million download mark on the Billboard charts, according to Reuters.

Judging by the tremendous success of her first two albums, 19 and 21, this should come as no surprise to fans. Plus, within the first 48 hours upon releasing the song's accompanying video, directed by Quebec filmmaker Xavier Dolan, it's nabbed more than 50 million views, which means that more than 1.6 million people have watched it per hour. This makes it the biggest debut of any YouTube video so far this year and one of the most-watched video debuts ever. It was also streamed 47.5 million times on Spotify.
