UPDATE: Glee's Adele mashup has officially knocked Rihanna from the top spot on 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 Glee mash off, The Troubletones' 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.
@NayaRivera: Adele mashup at #4 and hopefully climbing!! Thank you sooo much everyone for the sweet comments on tonights episode!
