Adele released the first single from her new album 25 this week, and it didn’t even take the full week for Hello, a power ballad about calling up an old boyfriend, to become the fastest selling single of 2015. No surprise from the queen of blue-eyed soul, who’s previous album 21 dominated pop music for two years.

Will we become as obsessed with Hello as we were for Rolling In The Deep (We could have had it allllllllll) and Someone Like You? Probably…I didn’t even need operator assistance to add it to my list of favourite songs about a telephone call.
