Filed under: Music MinuteAdeleBusiness Blitz

no title

Sorry, every other pop star…

This news is far from shocking, but we can finally report that Adele officially has the highest selling debut week in the history of modern music!

25 has sold a staggering 2.43 million copies in just four days, easily beating *NSYNC's previous record of 2.42 for No Strings Attached back in 2000… with three days to spare.

It's unclear if the 27-year-old will be able to hit the unheard of milestone of pushing 3 million albums in a single week, but we're confident she'll be snatching another record in no time!

Congrats again, Queen Adele!

Are U one of the literal millions of people who've purchased 25??

Adele's 25 Sells 2.3 Million Copies In The First Three Days — On Track For The Highest Selling Debut Week EVER!

Filed under: Music MinuteAdeleBusiness Blitz

no title

Do they even need to bother having the Grammys this year?

We knew Adele was breaking a lot of records with her release of 25, but this is just unbelievable.

The reports are in, and even though its only been three days since her official return, the Hello singer has already sold 2.3 million copies of her newest album.

That beyond impressive number makes her only the second artist to ever sell over 2 million physical albums since Billboard began its charts in 1991, and by this Friday could very well have the highest debut week of all time.

*NSYNC currently hold the title thanks to their 2.4 million copies of No Strings Attached back in 2000, but the 27-year-old's projected 2.9 is clearly going to crush that record.

In fact, she should have the numbers she needs as early as Monday night!

Could Adele be the first artist ever to crack 3 mil??

And in an interview with Billboard magazine, Missy did just that by declaring most songs she hears these days "sound alike."

But when she was asked specifically about Nicki Minaj being influenced by her sound, she "mock-innocently" said:

Well it looks like Bieberoni will come out on top!

According to Billboard, the 21-year-old's CD Purpose is looking to sell over 525,000 in its first week.

On the other hand, 1D's LP Made in the A.M. is projected to sell around 475,000.

However, before the What Do You Mean? hunk begins to pop champagne, there are still FOUR days left to determine who will be numero uno on the Billboard 200.

So really, anything can happen.

In happier news, BOTH records surpassed expectations! Experts believed each album would only sell around 300,000.

All is fair in love, war, and record sales!

Adele Matches Mariah Carey! See What Record She Just Tied As Hello Is Number One Yet Again!

no title

Dream lover, come rescue us!

Adele has been absolutely slaying it ever since she dropped Hello three weeks ago, and now that we're just four days away from hearing 25, it seems as though she's downright unstoppable.

While the 27-year-old's first single in three years may be the most downloaded digital track in history as well as one of the most viewed videos on YouTube, it somehow just broke another record!

Billboard released its charts for the week of Nov. 23 early Monday morning, and, unsurprisingly, Adele topped nearly every list… including No. 1 on Radio Songs.

While this may not sound terribly ground-breaking, what gives this title extra merit is that it's actually been 22 years since a single was able to dominate radio play in just four weeks of its release.

In fact, it was Mariah Carey's beautiful Dreamlover that had the distinction way back in 1993!

We wonder which record Adele plans on breaking next?!
