Rolling in the Deep was released in November 2010 but didn`t attract a wide audience until Adele`s "21" album arrived in February. Both album and song eventually became the biggest pop chart hits of 2011. The song was also the end-of-year critical consensus #1 by a wide margin. The "21" album returned to #1 on the charts in January 2012 when its fourth hit single took off.
