Band Or Solo Artist?: Solo
Genre: Soul, R&B, Pop
Greatest Hit: "Rolling in the Deep" (2010)
The beautiful British songstress has a voice strong enough to give any listener goosebumps, and her live performances never fail. Her debut album 19, release in 2008, certified four times platinum in the UK, and double platinum in the U.S. But it was her follow-up diamond album, 21, that made her a crying-alone-with-a-tub-of ice-cream staple, with singles like "Rolling In The Deep" and "Someone Like You."
When she released "Set Fire to The Rain," she became the first artist in history to lead the Billboard 200 concurrently with three Billboard Hot 100 number-ones. Clearly, Adele is the last woman who needs career advice, but if she teamed up with Taylor Swift, they'd have the greatest break up album of all time. Just sayin'.
