0 0 0 Glee’s Adele Mashup Soars to Top of iTunes Charts, Cast Reacts!
's Adele mashup has officially knocked Rihanna from the top spot on UPDATE: Glee iTunes.
Wednesday, November 16, 2011: Adele may not be able to say much these days, as she recovers from a November 7 throat procedure, but we’re pretty sure she’s fist-pumping at this news. In less than 24 hours since last night's epic , The Troubletones' Glee mash off mashup of her “Rumor Has It" and "Someone Like You" has dominated the iTunes charts. The song is currently at #2 and we're sure it's only a matter of time before it beats out Rihanna's "We Found Love" (currently the top contender) — especially considering it's beating Adele's original version of "Someone Like You," which has slipped to #4. The rivaling "I Can't Go for That"/"You Make My Dreams" mashup from the same episode is in the #15 spot, so, uh, we guess that settles who won the mash off (but you're still entitled to YOUR opinion). Sorry New-Ds. Last time a Glee song got this much hype was when Darren Criss ( Blaine) burst on the Glee scene with his Warblers-assisted cover of Katy Perry's "Teenage Dream" in Season 2 . It reached #6 on the Billboard Digital Charts (ahem, beating Rihanna's "What's My Name”... just saying, enjoy that #1 spot while it lasts, RiRi). The two voices behind the power mashup, Amber Riley ( Mercedes) and Naya Rivera (Santana) tweeted their excitement as early as after last night’s west coast airing of the show. Adele mashup at #4 and hopefully climbing!! Thank you sooo much everyone for the sweet comments on tonights episode! @NayaRivera: (11/15/2011, approx. 9pm PST) Best way to start your morning! I may just cry (tears of joy of course)! I'm gonna dance extra hard today! @MsAmberPRiley: (11/16/2011, approx. 10:30am PST) Congrats, ladies! Source: iTunes, NY Daily News
