Why? This album is a given, near 100%. If anyone can reach Taylor Swift status, it’s Adele. Her last album has sold over 10 million copies worldwide, and she in one year was awarded 6 Grammys and 1 Academy Award. She’s prolific, and 2015, if she so chooses, will be the year of Adele, again. Odds: 93%
