Adele sang “When We Were Young” on this week’s “SNL.” The song is the second single off her new hit album 25. See the video below Adele’s performance of “When We Were Young” on “Saturday Night Live.”

Adele’s appearance on “SNL” comes just one day after she released her highly anticipated third album 25, which sold nearly 1 million copies on iTunes in its first day of sales. The singer is well onto her way to breaking the record for the most album solds in just one week. *NSYNC previously held the title when it sold a little more than 2.4 million copies of No Strings Attached in 2000, but Adele is tracking to sell well more than 2.5 million records.

After releasing the album on Friday, Adele posted a message to fans on Facebook in which she said, “I am so overwhelmed and grateful to be able to even put another record out, and put it out how I want.” She further noted, “I hope you enjoy the record as much as I enjoyed making it for you.”

As Gossip Cop previously noted, this is the second time Adele has been the muscial guest on “Saturday Night Live.” Her first appearance was in 2008 when Josh Brolin hosted the show.
