It’s been more than a couple of years ago since Adele released her previous album; hence, there is indeed the excitement of her fans for the launching of her latest one, “25”. Music experts predicted the her album can sell more a million copies in its first week. Little did they know that it was bound to shatter a previous record done way long back in 2000.
According to Billboard, the “25” has successfully sold 2, 433,000 units in just the middle of a week as what the first sales report presented last Monday, Nov. 23. This figure alone already toppled NSYNC’s “No Strings Attached” record for the whole week through their 2, 416, 000 album sales in the final report last Mar. 26, 2000.
Thanks to Nielsen who started monitoring album sales in 1991, these quantitative counting surely helps in finding out how an artist fared in their album launching for the debut week.
Since this is already the number that Adele’s album recorded for just nearly four days, it is expected that she will have a bigger sales for the entire week. In fact, several industry forecasters are claiming her album can sell more with approximately 2.9 M units. Nielsen will just have to wait until Thursday, Nov.26, to tally the final count for the debut week of “25.” Afterwards, Billboard will present the sales report on Sunday, Nov.29.
The first track released from her album, which is “Hello” has also accomplished the largest sales week record in 15 years and it continues to fire up the music charts until now. According to Entertainment Weekly, Lee Henderson, a Target representative said, “We know 25 will be one of the biggest albums this holiday season.”
Fans absolutely made Adele feel their love with the massive support for her album sales. What do you think will be its final count?
