Adele had a Merry Christmas indeed. As she gets her break from her works and commitments, her album does not stop slaying in its sales and Billboard charts. “25” has a new mark again as a proof of Adele’s strong comeback in the music industry for 2015.
In a report from Billboard, the album has sold around 1.16 M units in the Christmas week count which ended at Dec.24 in the United States alone. This is a 47 percent increase from the last week.
In the last five weeks of record, this is the second largest so far which is next to the 3.38 M sales in its release week marked at Nov. 26 ending. All in all, it has now an accumulated 7 M sales in the United States alone.
The album remains unseated at its No.1 spot on the Billboard 200 albums chart for the consecutive five weeks.
According to Daily Mail, “25” is the first album to sell more than a million copies in a span of two different weeks. It’s also the first one to have an excess of 3M album units sold.
The significant rise in the sales from the Christmas week was anticipated since her supporters did a last minute holiday shopping. This is an ideal gift for certain for music lovers who really adore her voice and singing prowess. Often, Nielsen Music tracks down the numbers at least one or two days before Christmas day itself but in Adele’s album, they ended it on Dec. 25.
Billboard 200 chart has been the standard yardstick for the popularity of the albums on a weekly basis. This is done by looking at the multi-metric consumption which consists of the album unit sales, streaming, and track equivalent albums. It is predicted, “25” will be consistently strong in the No. 1 spot as she ventures on her concert tour in 2016.
Can Adele create another record in the weeks to come?
