The decade is quickly coming to a close. To celebrate the music and musicians of this period, Billboard 200 recently released the top songs, albums and artists of the 2010s. Adele’s 2011 album, 21, was ranked the top album for the 2010 Decade-End Charts. Not only did it top the chart for 24 weeks, but it also included three Hot 100 No 1 singles of the decade. These hit songs were Rolling in the Deep at No 10, Someone Like You at No 38 and Hello at No 52. Rick Rubin, the US record producer who worked with Adele on 21, said, “Besides her once-in-a-lifetime voice, Adele has a pure songwriting gift.” If Adele keeps writing music, we have a lot to look forward to in the coming decade.
