One of the tracks from Adele's new album 25 prompted debate in Turkey after her new song "Million Years Ago" sounds really similar to a song of renowned Kurdish singer Ahmet Kaya which was released in 1985.

In recent days, Kaya's fans are pointing out Adele's track bears a significant resemblance to Kaya's song "Acılara Tutunmak".

Ahmet Kaya's wife Gülten Kaya said that it was unlikely for a world star to do such thing, however adding if she consciously plagiarized the song it was simply theft.



Adele's "25" sold 1 million copies faster than any album in British chart history and topped the album charts for the second week running on Friday.



Fans bought up 1 million copies of the British singer's third album in just 10 days, beating previous record holder Oasis' "Be Here Now", which took 17 days to hit the milestone in 1997, the Official Charts Company said.
