If you thought the arrival of 2012 would see sales of Adele‘s ‘21‘ slow down, you were wrong.
For, this week almost a year since its release worldwide, the project is this week’s #1 on the Billboard 200- for the 15th time.
Full story below…
If the project goes onto hit the #1 spot again next week, it will match the record currently held by the ‘Titanic’ soundtrack and extend the belter’s status as the highest selling artist to debut within the last ten years.
As well as this, the project now ties with Whitney Houston‘s debut album for the third-most weeks atop the chart, and if it continues to sell as many copies per week as it did last year, it will have combined sales of 30 million copies worldwide by the end of 2012.
