Adele refuses to be stopped right now, as it was just made official that her new single, "Hello," debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart this week. Not only that, but Adele also set the record for most downloads of a song in the United States in one week with 1.11 million. This is the first ever song to reach over one million downloads in its first week of sales.

Surprisingly enough, this is Adele's first ever song to debut at the No. 1 spot on the chart, though this is her fourth song to somehow reach the top spot. Her upcoming album, 25, is reportedly on lock to sell over a million copies in its first week. There are even rumblings that she could reach the two million mark if everything goes right. 

Justin Bieber also continued his chart dominance this week, with his new single "Sorry" debuting at the No. 2 spot behind Adele. Earlier this year, Bieber's single, "What Do You Mean," debuted at No. 1, which gives good reason to think that his upcoming album, Purpose, is poised to make a major splash. Drake's "Hotline Bling" tumbled back to the No. 3 spot on the charts, while the previous No. 1—the Weeknd's "the Hills"—fell to No. 4.
