XL Recordings (2015) EU
Conveying the same transfixing blend of soulfulness, stylishness, independence, and emotion Adele displayed on her earlier record-breaking efforts but showing increased senses of maturity, poise, and agility, the British songstress turned her knockout third album 25 into a statement-making musical showcase that still resonates a half a decade later. Released in 2015 and featuring the smash single "Hello" which shot to No. 1 in 35 countries, 25 went on to win six Grammy Awards – including Album of the Year and Best Pop Vocal Album. With over 30 million global sales to date 25 is one of the century's biggest selling albums.
