Click to listen to Adele's 'Live at Royal Albert Hall'

Adele has had a phenomenal year. Her second album 21 has been the biggest-selling record of 2011, and her hits "Someone Like You" and "Rolling in the Deep" have made her a cross-generational superstar. Though the British singer has had the sort of year most artists can only dream of, there has been a downside, as her struggle with recurring hemorrhaging of her vocal cords has forced her to cancel dozens of concerts and keep out of the public eye until she has fully recovered. In the meantime, fans can enjoy her new concert album Live at the Royal Albert Hall, which includes selections from both of her albums performed at the legendary venue in London earlier this year. You buy the DVD/CD set from Amazon tomorrow, and stream the album in full today.

Song Stories

“Whoomp! (There It Is)”

Tag Team | 1993

Cecil Glenn — a.k.a., "D.C." — was a cook at Magic City, a nude dance club in Atlanta, when he first heard women shout "Whoomp — there it is!" Inspired by the party chant, he and partner Steve "Roll'n" Gibson wrote a song around it. Undaunted by label rejections, they borrowed $2,500 from Glenn's parents and pressed 800 singles, which quickly sold out in the Atlanta area. A record deal came soon after. Glenn said the song was meant for positive partying. "If you're going to say 'Whoomp there it is,' and you're doing something negative, we'd rather it not have come out of your mouth."
