Adele’s ’25’ Sells More Than 3 Million Copies in First Week [Music News]
Say “Hello” to another sales record, Adele.
The singer’s latest album, “25” sold 3.38 million copies in its first week of sales in the U.S., Billboard reports, marking the largest single-week sales figure for an album since Nielsen started tracking point-of-sale purchases back in 1991.
It’s also the first album to pass the 3-million sales mark in a week in Nielsen history.
The previous record-holder was *NSYNC’s 2000 offering “No Strings Attached,” which moved 2.42 million copies in its first week of release.
And for the year, “25” is the biggest-selling album to date, passing the 1.8 million copies that Taylor Swift‘s “1989” has moved.
The album’s lead-off single, “Hello,” has also racked up multiple records, becoming the first video to reach 100 million views on Vevo, hitting that summit in just five days. It is also the only digital track to sell a million copies in a week.
