Adele's "When We Were Young" Confirmed As Second Single From 25
The song follows fellow ballad, and monster smash, "Hello."
It's official, according to a source at Columbia Records: "When We Were Young" is the second single from Adele's album 25.
The soaring, wistful ballad has clearly been a fan favorite since the album's arrival, and it bolts 34-23 in its second week on the Adult Pop Songs airplay chart (dated Dec. 26). It has sold 150,000 downloads to-date, according to Nielsen Music, making it the second-best-selling song from 25; monster lead single "Hello," atop the Billboard Hot 100 for seven weeks so far, has sold 3.1 million. (The third-top-selling song from 25? the midtempo "Water Under the Bridge," at 104,000.)
The profile of "Young" has also been raised by its official live performance video, recorded at London's The Church Studios.
"Young" debuted at No. 22 on the Hot 100 two weeks ago, starting with 3.7 million U.S. streams and 101,000 downloads sold that week.
With airplay promotion now in the mix, and 25 atop the Billboard 200 albums chart for a third week, "Young" could be primed to scale the Hot 100 like its predecessor 25 smash "Hello."
Sometimes there's airplanes, I can't jump out. Sometimes there's bullsh!t, that don't work now. We all got out stories, but please tell me... what there's to complain about.
Meanwhile, second 25 single "When We Were Young" nudges 55-54 on the Hot 100, led by its 12 percent increase to 39,000 sold. It also climbs 20-18 on the Adult Pop Songs airplay chart and 32-25 on Pop Songs and debuts at No. 24 on Adult Contemporary.
