The singer's upcoming record 25 won't be available for streaming, the New York Times reports. Although this news will likely find some of Adele's fans sulking to a playlist of the singer's most melancholy melodies, the album's lack of "streamability" actually has a bright side, at least according to Forbes.
As the site points out, 25 is already uber popular and projected to sell 2.5 million copies in its first week, therefore Adele is in the enviable position of not really even needing Spotify, Apple Music and other streaming services to help boost her album sales.
Hmm...so was this four-year hiatus all a part of the singer's master plan? Drop two ah-mazing albums, disappear for half a decade with our hearts inside of her hand, only to return with two beautiful songs that instantly convince everyone to download 10 copies each of the new album. Just kidding, Adele. Those sequence of events probz weren't intentional, but they totally worked in your favor!
Adele or her team have yet to confirm to the streaming reports, but fans who planned on listening to the full album on its release date can check out the singer's live performance of "Hello" on the BBC, that is if they're not too busy downloading 25.
