Adele is celebrating the upcoming release of her fourth album, 30, with a two-hour prime time special on CBS, Adele One Night Only. The Nov. 14 show, which will air from 8:30 p.m.- 10:30 p.m. ET on CBS and stream live and on-demand on Paramount+, will be filmed in Los Angeles and include the singer performing some of her most beloved hits as well as several never-before-heard new songs according to a release announcing the special one-off event.
In addition to the performances, the special will feature an exclusive interview with Oprah Winfrey from her rose garden, which will be Adele’s first televised chat about “her new album, the stories behind songs, life after divorce, weight loss and raising her son.”
The first single from 30 (due out on Nov. 19), the peak-scaling piano ballad “Easy on Me,” dropped on Oct. 14 and instantly sold nearly 15,000 digital downloads in its first five hours of availability in the U.S., according to MRC Data, while collecting more than three million on-demand audio and video streams in the same time frame.
The next day, “Easy,” sold another 27,000 downloads in the U.s. according to initial MRC Data reports. The song also got off to a blazing start on U.S. radio, with the single drawing 897 plays in its first five hours on Oct. 14 on 250 stations that report to Billboard’s all-genre Radio Songs chart.
In its first full day of tracking (Friday, Oct. 15), “Easy” was played 4,160 times, generating 21 million in audience, again propelled, in part, by hourly spins, ranking No. 1 as the most-played and most-heard song on radio on Friday.
