Adele hit #1 on the Billboard 200 chart after the first week of sales for her new album, ’25,’ with 3.38 million sales. This is Adele’s second #1 album: ’21’ was also a smash hit. Even Britney Spears is a fan!
By last Tuesday we knew that Adele had broken ‘NSYNC’s long-held record of most sales in one week with 2.433 million albums sold, but, as you can see, sales just continued to grow. It’s especially astounding when you consider that few people even buy the entire album anymore: most of us just buy the singles we like or stream songs.
You can count Britney as one of her fans. She posted this tribute to Adele on Instagram:
It sounds like Adele has a willing backup dancer if she needs one! She very well might: the ’25’ singer recently announced her first tour in four years in Europe. I’m sure Adele will tour in the US as well afterwards. Did you buy her new album, ’25’?
