ADELE’S comeback single Easy On Me sold more copies in two days than the current No1 song did in a week.
The tune shifted 70,000 copies in the first 48 hours of its release and is outperforming the whole Top Ten combined.
Sir Elton John and Dua Lipa’s collaboration, Cold Heart, sold 64,000 copies in seven days.
Adele, 33, is set to knock the pair off the top spot this Friday.
Easy On Me, which was released Friday and has already been streamed on YouTube 62.4million-plus times, is expected to have the biggest opening week for a song on the Official Singles Chart this year
Adele penned the song in the aftermath of her split from American businessman Simon Konecki.
She said of writing the album: “It was bloody hard work to make.
“I was singing things I didn’t even realise I was feeling or thinking.
“But I’m really, really proud of it and I feel like I can’t unlock a door for my own mental health and take the key with me.
“I’ve got to leave it in the door for everyone else and I’m in a strong place now where I feel like I can put that vulnerability out.”
