Every Song On Adele’s ‘30’ Made The Billboard Hot 100 Chart


All 12 songs on Adele’s newly released album 30 made this week’s Billboard Hot 100 Chart, another achievement for the hugely successful album that’s been deemed some of the best work of her career.

Key Facts

Adele’s lead single from 30, “Easy On Me,” returned to the number one spot on the Hot 100 chart—which ranks songs on sales, radio airplay and streams—for the week ending on December 4, where it had ranked for four weeks until last week, when it was briefly replaced by Taylor Swift’s “All Too Well,” which fell to number four. 

“Oh My God” earned the number five spot, becoming Adele’s eighth top 10 hit, and the second time two of her songs have simultaneously ranked in the top 10, according to Billboard.

Seven tracks made the top 50: “I Drink Wine” ranked 18th, “My Little Love” ranked 23rd, “Can I Get It” ranked 26th, “To Be Loved” ranked 32nd, “Strangers By Nature” ranked 41st, “Cry Your Heart Out” ranked 44th and “Hold On” ranked 49th. 

The remaining three songs weren’t far behind: “All Night Parking” came in at number 53, “Woman Like Me” came in at number 55 and “Love Is A Game” came in at 56.

Surpring Fact

“Easy On Me” is the most-streamed song of the week, the top-selling song of the week and the most-heard song on the radio this week, the first time the song has topped all three categories, according to Billboard.


Songs from 30 also ranked in Billboard’s top 10 most-heard lists across six radio genres: Adult Pop Airplay, Adult Contemporary, Pop Airplay, Adult Alternative Airplay, Dance/Mix Show Airplay and Adult R&B Airplay.

Key Background

Rolling Stone, Variety, Vulture and The A.V. Club have all classified 30 as Adele’s best album yet. It has shattered sales records since its November 19 release: In three days it sold more than 500,000 copies, making it the best-selling album of the year, and it debuted on the Billboard 200 with the largest opening week of 2021. 30 was also one of the most successful Spotify releases by a female artist. The power of 30, which told the story of Adele’s divorce from her husband Simon Konecki, was so strong that Spotify even changed its business to appeal to the singer. At her request, the streaming service removed shuffle as the default listening option to albums. After the feature was changed, Adele tweeted that “stories should be listened to as we intended.”
