There's never a slow day for Adele. Just last night, the 25 singer took home the Top Artist honor at the 2016 Billboard Music Awards. She also premiered the video for her latest single, "Send My Love (To Your Lover.)" Not bad for a night's work.

This morning, she's making headlines yet again for signing what could potentially be the most expensive deal in music history. So, you know, a normal Monday for Adele.

Adele is allegedly going to leave XL Recordings in the U.K. to become a fully Sony artist (right now her albums are released through XL and Sony-owned Columbia), all for a fat check of £90 million (approximately $130,339,350 USD). An unnamed Sony Records source told The Sun: “We had an existing relationship with Adele in America. The deal is being worked on by Columbia in the U.S., but it’s worth £90 million and gives Sony the rights to release Adele’s future music exclusively around the world.”
