Adele

Add Date: June 17

Artist: Adele

Album: 19

Label: XL/Columbia

Genre: Singer/songwriter, soul

Comments: And the race to become the next Amy Winehouse continues! Actually, it might already be over: Adele Adkins has already been dubbed as such by the press in her native Britain, where 19 hit No. 1 upon its release there back in January. But really, the only similarity I can see is that they both have great voices: Adele's music is much jazzier and folksier than that from the much-maligned Ms. Winehouse. And kudos to any artist brave enough to cover Dylan on a debut record; Adele does so with "Make You Feel My Love" from Time Out of Mind.
