Her fascination with music started back when she was 4 years old. Her childhood was not an easy one, since Adele and her mother were abandoned by their father. To combat the negative feelings, she found refuge in the music of her age, specifically a band called The Spice Girls.
As she grew older and reached her teen years, she transitioned into the R&B style, since she and her mother moved to West Norwood. The R&B influences can easily be seen in one of her more personal songs, namely “Hometown Glory”.
Of course, it was not all easy for her, but succeeding in the music industry never is. Her big break started in 2006, when one of her friends uploaded a demo of one of her songs online. From then one, everything picked up rather fast, because people fell in love with her voice and her lyrics. XL Recordings were the first one to offer her a contract. As soon as she signed it, her popularity rose at an incredible rate, mostly because she now had the power of quality marketing to back up her talent.
Going back to her musical career, you might have heard that the first album released by Adele in 2008 was called “19”. This is because that was her exact age when she released it. The album was met with huge success. Keep in mind that the album got an x4 Platinum certification in the UK and an x2 Platinum certification in the US.
The habit of naming albums after her age continued with her second album “21”, something that might set a new standard in the industry for young artists. This one was even more successful than the first one, since it received 6 Grammy Awards and an x16 Platinum certification in the UK.
This is definitely admirable for somebody her age. All the acknowledgements she received had a considerable financial impact, as it was to be expected – if current Adele net worth estimates go around $75 million, future forecasts mention amounts above the psychological $100 million threshold. Will this threshold be crossed? We'll just have to wait and see!
