Adele’s ’25’ Album Passes 3 Million Sales In First Week
Adele‘s new album 25 is on a whole nother level. Her third studio project has now officially surpassed 3 million units sold in its first week according to Nielsen Music. HOLY SHIT.
Everyone needs to realize how big of a feat this is, especially since the days of album sales are (apparently not…?) behind us.
Let us put that in perspective for you:
Britney Spears‘ Oops!… I Did It Again sold 1.32 million copies its first week, which was the previous record for a female artist – until Adele SMASHED it.
*N’SYNC‘s No Strings Attached sold a thought-to-be-unbreakable 2.42 million copies. Adele? CRUSHED it.. with days to spare.
