Adele Changed Third Single To "Set Fire to the Rain"
Believe it or not, though it’s been out for nearly a whole year now, and has sold over 10 million copies worldwide, there’s still only been two official singles released off Adele’s 21. Of course, those two singles were “Rolling in the Deep” and “Someone Like You,” which have sold a combined 7 million copies in the US and spent a combined 12 weeks on top the Hot 100, so you can forgive the slow roll-out some, but now at long last we have a third release from that album: “Set Fire to the Rain.” Billboard reports that while Columbia records was originally planning on pushing “Rumour Has It” as the third single, the label’s research “found more programmer preference for ‘Set Fire to the Rain’.”
I'm glad they changed it, I've been waiting for this song to be released for too long.
