We know that Adele is bigger than every other pop star, but now it seems that the big-bellied wonder sells a s**tload of music as well.
Billboard has revealed that the star’s new album is set to sell over 2.5 million copies in its first week in America, a mark that will break *NSYNC’s long-standing record of 2.42 million sold.
This news comes on top of data that shows that Adele enjoyed the biggest first day sales totals of all time in the UK.
It is no coincidence that these record breaking figures come after Adele blocked her new album from appearing on Spotify and Apple Music. People buy the cow when they can’t get the milk.
Adele is also set to surpass the entire sales of Taylor Swift’s 1989, which has sold 1.74 million. A timely reminder as to who the real Queen of Music is.
The Brit star’s new album, 25, has already sold more than 900,000 copies on US iTunes alone.
The hot release is set to debut at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 albums chart this week. It will be Adele’s second number one. Her last album, 21, spent 24 weeks atop the charts. This was the most weeks ever at the for an album by a woman.
While ’21’ stands as the tenth-largest selling album of all time, it sounds like ’25’ could storm past that mark.
Adele is big, big, big. As Ginger Clam muttered last time the singer sat on her face.
