Last night Adele added an Oscar to her impressive career after winning the award for Best Original Song for Skyfall. Check out her performance above. This isn’t hip hop but it’s sheer class.
After the jump check out a mash up of Adele’s Skyfall with Eminem’s Lose Yourself. Two Oscar winning songs merged together with an impressive result.
With DMX’s first album in 6 years just over the horizon, XXL caught up with him and asked him about which lady singers he would like to work with. X responded with, “Sade and Adele”. “I love chubby girls”, he said in reference to Adele. While Sade got a simple, “I love her”. That’s not the best way to ask Adele for a collaboration, but it’ll be cool if it got worked out somehow. Undisputed due in the second quarter this year.
According to HDD, Tyga’s Careless Word: Rise Of The Last King is expected to sell a solid 70K-80K copies in its first week. Take note that these are all digital sales since the album was pulled from stores just days before its release due to an unauthorized Martin Luther King sample. Either way, these are still solid numbers for Tyga.
Chiddy Bang’s Breakfast debut is expected to move around 30K-35K in its first week.
In related music news, Adele is expected to stay at #1, making this her 22nd week at the top spot. 21 sold an approximated 300K copies this week, adding to the 7.3 million albums sold so far.
Adele performed her hit song Rolling In The Deep live at the 54th Annual Grammy Awards 2012. It was one of the stand out performances from the awards show.

Record Of The Year – Rolling In The Deep
Song oF the Year – Rolling In The Deep
Album of the Year – 21
Best Pop Solo Performance – Someone Like You
Best Pop Vocal Album – 21
