November 16, 2010 Double Grammy-winner Adele just released the first single off her February 22 album 21 -- and "Chasing Pavement" it ain't. On "Rolling in the Deep," the Brit crooner has grown into a hot-blooded soul sister with cigarette smoke and whiskey on her breath. …
November 2, 2010 After breaking out with her 2008 Grammy-winning debut 19, British singer Adele will return with her anticipated follow-up 21 on February 22.

December 8, 2008 Despite being nominated in four categories at next year's Grammy Awards, British singer Adele has declared that the timing's not right for her to win a statue.
"I imagine it's like winning an Oscar and I don't think on this record I should get one," she told BBC 6Music. "I think it should be with my second or third record."?
