Adele’s Record Breaking Album Numbers…SO FAR

Lauren Kelly

We all heard that Adele‘s new album “25” would smash records even before it came out last week…but this is INSANE!

The album hit shelves last Friday and you’ve gotta check out the records it’s already broken, HOLY COW!

According to the Huffington Post:

’25’ In (Record-Breaking) Numbers:

–> ‘25’ shot to No 1 in the iTunes chart in 106 out of 119 countries

–> It sold 300,000 copies in the UK alone on its first day of release, one of the biggest first-day totals of all time

–> In the UK, ‘25’ is on course to become the fastest-selling album ever after shifting 538,000 copies in three days

–> Only two albums have ever sold more than 500,000 copies in a week in the UK: Take That’s ‘Progress’ sold 519,000 in 2010, and Oasis’s ‘Be Here Now’ shifted 696,000 in August 1997

–> ‘25’ sold 2.3m copies in the US in just three days

–> It is forecast to sell 2.9m copies in the US in its first week

–> N Sync’s 2000 album, ‘No Strings Attached’, currently holds the record for first week sales of 2.4m, which ‘25’ is predicted to beat by some margin

–> Adele has already beaten Beyoncé’s record of having the fastest-selling album in iTunes history after ‘25’ sold in excess of 900,000 copies via Apple’s music service within the first day of its release (Beyoncé sold 617,000 downloads in three days)
