Adele has accumulated plenty of feats over the years and is showing no signs of stopping: for instance, she can now say one of her music videos has become the fastest ever to notch up a billion views.
The video in question is her latest single "Hello" which was taken from her third chart-topping record 25, released last December.
It's been three months since the video was unveiled (on 22 October) and has now officially reached over a billion views on YouTube - the fastest ever music video to do so; fifty million of those views alone were generated after 48 hours.
The previous video to reach a billion was Psy's "Gangnam Style" which took 158 days compared to Adele's 87.
This week, the ten-time Grammy award-winning musician was confirmed to perform at this year's ceremony taking place in LA on 15 February.
Adele also recently proved she's YouTube gold-dust when her appearance on James Corden's popular Late Late Show segment 'Carpool Karaoke' amassed 45 million views in a single week.
