Adele’s ’25’ Becomes First Album To Sell At Least 1 Million Copies In Two Different Weeks
Adele says “Hello” to yet another record with her third LP 25: After selling a jaw-dropping 3.38 million copies in its first week on sale, the album has moved at least another million copies in week number two, making it the first LP to have two million-selling weeks in Nielsen SoundScan history according to Billboard.
Earlier this week 25 topped the Billboard 200 and instantly became the best-selling album of 2015, surpassing the additional 1.8 million copies Taylor Swift‘s 1989 sold this year after initially being released in October 2014. Meanwhile, the lead single off Adele’s third LP, “Hello,” is currently enjoying its fifth week atop the Billboard Hot 100.
According to Billboard, there’s still less than a day’s worth of data to process for this chart week, and final figures will be posted to the publication’s website on Sunday.
