Adele’s ’25’ Album Sells 3.38 Million Copies in Its First Week“The British songbird’s comeback effort, 25, sold an impressive 3.38 million copies in its of release to become the first in Nielsen history to sell more than 3 million copies in a week. This, of course, makes ’s 25 the No. 1 album on the Billboard 200 chart. This will also be her second No. 1 album following her previous release, 21, in 2011.”

To put this all in perspective, 25 beat the previous first-week record once held by NSYNC’s No Strings Attached (it sold 2.42 million in its first week in March 2000). In addition, Adele’s third project is already the biggest selling album of 2015.

If the LP’s selling streak continues right through the holiday season, Adele could easily out-sell her last album, 21. That collection spent 24 nonconsecutive weeks at No. 1 on theBillboard 200 and sold 11.2 million copies.
