Adele picks up MTV’s Best Song of 2011 honors

More honors for Adele.

The UK singer has already topped best-of 2011 lists by Billboard, Rolling Stone, Time magazine and iTunes, and now she has another list to add to her list of lists.

MTV has named “Rolling In The Deep” as the Best Song Of 2011, ahead of tracks by Nicki Minaj, Rihanna and LMFAO.

“Was there any doubt?,” writes MTV. “The megahit so dominated 2011 that calling it the Song of the Year is putting it mildly. And we're not just talking commercially — though it was the year's best-selling track — or critically, mostly because focusing on those details fails to tell the whole story. Consider it the anthem to end all anthems, the feel-bad song of our time, the antidote for the Auto-Tuned masses.”

"It's overwhelming how many people my life has resonated with. I find it quite hard to wrap my head around it,” wrote Adele to MTV after hearing the news. "I was pretty insistent it be a single. But I thought it would be more a tastemaker vibe than a hit. I loved the song the minute I wrote it. The melody and the beat added some conviction to it. I think that's why people have connected with it."
