Adele’s new single, “Hello” has broken records in just the two weeks since its release. Not only has it broken the record of the most downloads sold in a week with 1,112,000 downloads (beating Flo Rida’s “Right Round” by a landslide, which held the record with 636,000 downloads), but it has also become the second-fastest music video to hit a million views, after PSY’s “Gangnam Style.” Adele’s new album, 25, will be released on Nov. 20, 2015 and as the date approaches, here are student opinions of the song and their expectations for the rest of the album. Will Adele regain her throne at the top of the music charts with 25? This is what MVHS students have to say.

Sophomores Nathan Stevens and Payal Lariya are indifferent towards Adele’s music, and impart their views on if they feel her popularity will continue and why.

Sophomores Samantha Millar and Hasini Shyamsundar are fans of Adele’s previous works, and reflect on her work in the past and how they think “Hello” compares, as well as what this song says about 25.
