Is Adele the next big flop

Look around. All our faves have come crashing down to earth in one way or another over the past few years. Will Adele be the next big superstar who becomes a flop? Why or why not?

I’ve been wondering this all year. Especially since Ed and Taylor both underperformed. It’s a well known fact though - nobody stays on top forever and ever, it’s natural to have highs and lows through a career in the media.

People made this thread back in 2014. Adele can sell 2,5 million copies first week next album easily

Has Rihanna had her flop moment yet? I don't think so. She's probably more at risk than Adele.

She won’t and if she does then it’s in her own standards.

No, she’ll stop releasing music all together before she flops.

People immediately dismissing this interesting discussion with a ‘NO, hunty :lmao:’ are so annoying. Literally everyone has flopped recently, no one is safe.

An underperformance is almost guaranteed but her underperformance will still probably outsell the biggest album released since 25 :rip:

Lol yes she has! What would you call BBHMM, 45S and American Oxygen? She was even flopping with Rated R until Rude Boy came in and saved the day. 

 

I dont know about Adele, I could see it going either way for her.

As with every artist's case, it'll depend on the music she releases.  

 

Also, she's one of the very few artists who has fans outside of the typical mainstream music fanbase that can generate massive public interest. The only way she can **** that up is she releases something very off-putting.

At the very least, I think it'll perform like Reputation. Huge front loaded single, rest are flops, maybe one actual semi hit (like Delicate), big opening numbers, and successful tour. But overall, an underperformance. 

 

Of course, if the music is good she can easily not flop. But who knows.

BBHMM & 45S weren’t flops

Adele’s music isn’t pop like most of our faves in here. She has her own market and is in her own lane, she’s safe.

She will underperform for her standards, but it will still be huge.  If that makes sense.

 

It will be her REPUTATION/Lover, Witness, Artpop.

Even if she suffers a -75% in decline, her album would sell ~2m US / 5m WW ... so.. lol
