Yes, Adele has topped the Album Sales Chart with a remarkable and jaw-dropping 3.4m. Meanwhile, with 3.5m, her 25 also topped the Sales Plus Streaming Chart.
Adele’s sales number smashes the 2.4m first-week record that’s been held by NSYNC since 2000.
In fact, she sold more in one week than NSYNC sold in their first two, as No Strings Attached dropped to around 800k in its sophomore week.
Could 25 sell as many as 6m copies by the end of the year?
In their second weeks out, Justin Bieber and One Direction slide to the #2 and #3 spots with 169k and 81k, respectively.
