[tps_footer]It is no secret that Adele is one of the hottest stars in the music industry. Her latest album 25 only went ahead to confirm that!
Now that the deal with her label has expired, music labels are willing to pay through their nose to sign the global diva on board! Talk of demand, guys.
The Hello singer is reportedly about to say Hi! to a deal with Sony Music for $130 million! Isn’t that major?
According to the Sun, resources from Sony said:
“We’ve secured Adele, who’s without doubt the biggest music star in a generation. This is massive.”
This deal would be the biggest in history for a British musician, topping the $115 million EMI shelled to sign Robbie Williams up in the year 2002.
Incidentally, Adele happened to surpass Whitney Houston’s $100 million deal with Arista back in 2001, which makes this the biggest deal for a female artist in history! Way to go , Adele.
A spokesperson for Adele reportedly had no comment to make on the deal, but the Sony resources added:
“Adele’s deal with her original label, XL, expired and we’d an existing relationship with her in America. The deal is being worked on by our Columbia label in the US, but is worth [$130 million] and gives Sony the rights to release her future music exclusively around the world.”
Adele sure seems to the Katie Price of music but well, she’s worth it![/tps_footer]
