Global Chart: Adele’s ’21’ Moves Over 12 Million Copies Worldwide

adele21 Global Chart: Adeles 21 Moves Over 12 Million Copies Worldwide

 

Can you hear that?

No? Well that was the sweet sound of champagne bottles being popped open at  XL Recordings, London.

For this  week- more so than any other week this year- has given them much cause to celebrate.

Because as of this global chart week, the album ‘21‘ by their artist Adele has sold over 12 million copies worldwide.

 

Full story below…

 

The first album since 2002 to do so within the space of 10 months , it rose to #2 this week with 245,000 units moved within the last seven days.

With the single ‘Set Fire To The Rain‘ due for release in the US this coming Monday, sales of the LP are expected to increase even further which would help it return to the top spot on the Billboard 200 in a fortnight’s time.

Elsewhere on the Global Album Chart, Cher Lloyd’s ‘Sticks & Stones‘ debuts with sales of 57,000 units placing it at #14, 20 places above Rihanna‘s ‘Loud’ which resides at #34 after 51 weeks in the chart.

On the singles front, ‘We Found Love’ by Ms. Fenty spends it third week atop the United World Track Chart.

Below it at #5 is Adele’s ‘Someone Like You’ whose sisters ‘Rolling In The Deep‘  and ‘Set Fire To The Rain‘ hold court at #19 and #25 respectively.

With Drake‘s ‘Take Care‘ set for an impressive US debut in the coming week, be sure to keep it locked on That Grape Juice to find out just how he fares globally when his figures roll in next week.

    Adeles success proves good music always finds an audience and don’t forget 21 was released world wide 3 weeks before it was in the US and Canada and in some countries it’s under certified UK for example it’s shipped 3.6 million so it should be 12x platinum but is only 10 or in Canada it should be 9x platinum for shippment of 720k but is only 7x platinum for 560k and we have black friday next week which means a sales spike and then Christmas a month later

    BTW ain t never gonna sell 10 Million so TGJ can rest.

    Gaga has released close to 6 singles, has been on every tv show possible and debuted with 2 Million. Yet, she is about to drop off the chart without even reaching 5Million.
    I think Gaga needs to work hard on her next album cus even tho’ 4.5 Million is a great number thee days, it is very disapointing when u come in with a incredsible hype and a monster 2 Million debut.

    lady gaga has not sold 10 million! she hasn’t even sold 5 million yet.
    where do people get their facts from? she has only shipped a little over 7 million but has sold less than 5 million. there is a difference between shipped and sold, like rihanna she has sold over 6 million but she has shipped over 7 million.

    @XTINACOMING2012,

    that is more likely the number of albums shipped, the actual number sold is less than 5 million.

Congrats all over!! it’s even more celebratory cus she came outta nowhere. all eyes were on the trinity ie Beyonce Britney and Gaga for 2011.

    Rihanna is doing very well for herself she’s actually sold about 5-6 million ww and nearly 1.6 million in the US. Gaga has sold around 5 million ww, and she has shipped about 7 million ww. So they are all doing great. Adele is just out of this world with her numbers. Simply amazing…

    With the holidays approaching, we could see a substantial increase in sales.

    My prediction is by years end, 21 will have pushed almost 20 million worldwide!

    Don’t pay no mind to wikipedia because people can easily edit whatever they want on that site. Probably just some delusional pressed as Gaga stans who want us to think she’s sold 8 million ww.

    LOL@Rihtard fans trying to get in on Adele’s fire and align that talentless ho Rihanna as being on the same winning team. Nope. Rihtard’s album has only sold about 5 million WW and hasn’t even gone multiplatinum in the US. A far far cry from Adele’s 4x platinum US and in the DOUBLE DIGIT millions worldwide. That non-singing Barbadian ho sells cheap digital downloads, not albums. Loud is a flop, call it Floud.
