Adele Continues "Rolling"

ROLLING IN THE GLEEKS: Adele’s XL/Columbia album, 21, continues to surge, set to return to #1 tomorrow with a total that looks around 150k, more than a 50% jump over last week, thanks, of course, to Easter weekend, but also because of a pair of cover versions on Glee and American Idol. Gwyneth Paltrow’s take on “Turning Tables,” from last week’s Glee, sold almost 50k downloads in its first week, as did Adele’s original version, up from 4,000 the week before. In addition, the current single, “Rolling in the Deep,” was up 100%, from 140k to 280k, thanks also to a performance by Haley Reinhart on last week’s American Idol. The pre-emptive Grammy front-runner and sales leader is being called the biggest phenomenon since the days of Alanis Morissette, leading industry insiders to wonder aloud, “Can Adele save the record business?” (4/25p)
