Nielsen SoundScan is the “official source of sales records in the music industry.” Adele, together with his co-writer Paul Epworth, describe “Rolling in the Deep” as a “dark blues-y gospel disco tune” because of the combination of mellow and pounding piano tunes as the song progresses. The song first debuted in late 2010 when Adele sang it on several performances such as Madiwodovrij Show and The Ellen DeGeneres Show. In early 2012, “Rolling in the Deep” won Record of the Year, Song of the Year, and Best Short Form Music Video at the Grammy Awards.
