The Numbers Are In! Adele’s ’25’ US & UK First Week Sales Revealed

Published: Friday 27th Nov 2015 by Sam

Adele‘s mind-blowing success with ’25’ quite literally beggars belief.

But, with the final numbers now in, it’s official – the slayage is all sorts of real.

Details below…

Hits Daily Double have confirmed that the LP has capped off its phenomenal launch week by hitting the 3.4 million sales mark in the US. Yes, 3.4 MILLION. The number rises to 3.5 million when factoring in streaming.

Back on home soil, the ‘Hello’ led project hit #1 on the Official UK Album tally with a giant 800,000 copies sold.

Beyond the fact that ’25’ has become the fast selling album EVER in the UK, its numbers in the region are especially epic when considering how small the UK population (despite still being a major music market) is in comparison to the States.

To put into context, Texas (as well as 10 other US states) are bigger than the UK in size. And yet, Ms. Adkins is shifting numbers in Britain (first week) that few American acts are managing to sell total in the US.

Utterly astonishing, utterly deserved. The 27-year-old is not only reviving the industry, she has become one in herself.

Keep it locked on That Grape Juice for the full low-down on Adele’s blockbuster week.

    Congrats to her!!

    • maurice November 27, 2015

      Where is Rihanna’s album?
      she delayed it again?
      I CANNOT with her anymore. LMAO.

    • Arfa November 27, 2015

      Adelephant just ended beyonce, rihanna and taylors careers in one week.

    • Lisa November 28, 2015

      I’ve listened to the CD 4-5 times. It’s not better than 19 or 21. Its a good CD.

      1. Love in the Dark – is the 2nd best single on the CD, heartbreak at it’s best. She’s trying to leave, he’s telling her — he’ll be better this time.
      2. All I Ask – BRUNO MARS listen she sang this song better live….what happen. The cd version is NOT as good as the Live Radio city music hall one. BIG MISTAKE — this is her Celine/Mariah big ballad.
      3. Send My Love — This needs to be remixed and sent to radio– Hit, Hit, Hit.

      The rest of the CD sent me to sleep.

      • suckingyoutonight November 28, 2015

        You picked two of the dumbest songs send me to your lover? Really that song trash all I ask and remedy are the Jewel’s on the album and all I ask is sang beautifully you should wanna hear a singer sing it better live

  2. HailBeysus November 27, 2015

    Conrats Adele!! Shiiiit is crazy!!!

    • HailBeysus November 27, 2015

      Lol conrats??? Dafuq haha congrats!!!

      • Surprise..(DEC 2013) November 27, 2015

        Hate to be a downer, but Adele UK sales did not technically beat Oasis record of (695,000 copies). That amount was just in three days (rELEASED ON A THURSDAY AND COUNTED THROUGH SUNDAY) as opposed to adele’s full week of sales…YES I WENT THERE

      • Chile, leave my weave at the door and don’t steal it like those broke ass barb stans November 27, 2015

        @Surprise, was that record held for “What’s the Story, Morning Glory”? If so, I’m surprised “Wonderwall” and “Some Might Say” had such a big impact on the UK.

  3. AnnaliseKeatingsNewWig November 27, 2015

    My. God. She is this generations Celine when it comes to just standing there with pure talent, no antics, fully clothed, CLASSY and selling albums on her NAME alone. Not pulling surprise stunts, or whistling her way out of a voice.

    ___

    Congrats mother!

    • Lisa November 28, 2015

      Hunnie, Do not quietly come for Mrs. Mariah Carey. Keep in mind, Adele is a Fan of Mariah and has stolen her hand gestures and a few of those notes.

      Mariah Carey, Whitney Houston, Celine, Aretha are the blueprints.

      Adele is a student. Who we love, but a Student. We have been here before.

      Now hush up your hating A_S_S and go play.

      • AnnaliseKeatingsNewWig November 28, 2015

        That’s OBVIOUSLY not me, since I just praised Mariah on the Rick Ross post. This is a childish-inbred-bucktooth-thot with no mammary glands and a wideset vag*na pretending to be me when she knows I’m not around.

  4. AnnaliseKeatingsNewWig November 27, 2015

    Waiting for that bandwaggoning Molly to come in here. You’re they’re RihSLAVÎ no one uses you or likes you.

        Stop liking your own comments. It’s predictable and pathetic. Go troll somewhere else, but you better leave my Ci Ci stan peers alone.

    Congrats Adele. She went 3x Platinum within a week. That’s NEVER happen before. Her album will be Diamond by March (imo). Congrats again, Adele

    Honestly is her album THAT good? Damn 3.5 million in a week is insane. I’ve never been into her like that…

    • Jay November 27, 2015

      You out of 3.5 million people…

    • Lisa November 28, 2015

      This is the CD the general public wants to succeed. Its a quality cd, a tad boring.

      But the heartbroken g_ays love it.

      The housewife whose husband hates her and who is sleeping with his secretary love it.

      She crosses all these lanes because even with c+ material the girl is singing her face off.

  12. QueenTaylor November 27, 2015

    25 did beat the UK record no matter how u slice it.

    Oasis sold 690k in 3 days, but when you look at they 7 days sales, it was still only 770k.
    Way frontloaded on their 1st day.

    ADELE IS THE QUEEN

    Flopyonce could never.

    If you ain’t team Adele or team Swizzle… youre a flop

  13. QueenTaylor November 27, 2015

    Beyonce was a flop album.
    ADELE slayed without gimmicks & free music videos.

    21 sold as many albums as Beyonce entire career.

    Smh

    Basics

  14. Sherry November 27, 2015

    NOT that f*** RihNavy trolling as Sherry and LameEerie while I search for a new Avi to slay that heaux with.

  16. No favs, just here for the music November 27, 2015

    3.4 million???? It’s crazy how she kept exceeding the expectations of her album sales day by day.
    I’m at a f****** loss for words lol.

    CONGRATULATIONS ADELE!!!

  17. WHUT November 27, 2015

    This post is filled with trolls. Mess. Anyways, congrats Adelephant.

  18. J Crewed Up November 27, 2015

    Phenomenal sales. Congrats to her & XL.

    However, I wish the album was good. It is the definition of middle of the road. “Turning Tables” is better than this entire album. “He Won’t Go” is better than everything but “Hello.”

    I’m still a fan but I hope she takes some risks on her next album.

    But watching her destroy records has been fun.

    • JOHNVIDAL November 28, 2015

      I agree, the album is not amazing or anything. It´s just ok. Her previous two were way way better. And most albums with monumental sales in music history are obviously better than “25” too.

  19. IG: @mixedboy November 27, 2015

    People lie, numbers don’t!!! #slaydele

    • HailBeysus November 27, 2015

      This saying is stupid because numbers can be forged lol

  20. Rosie November 27, 2015

    This Aaliyah stan? She died like 15 years ago. Get over it.

    Congrats. I have no other words.

    • King Mark111 /.\ November 27, 2015

      Music never dies and Aaliyah will always be more iconic than Del Who. Don’t hate because Aaliyah is still more relevant today in the grave than Lama Dodo Rays.

      • Rosie November 27, 2015

        No one except for hood rats cares about Aaliyah anymore, literally a nonfactor among mainstream America/the rest of the world
        Lana can flop as hard as she wants and still have impact (see: Melanie Martinez or w/e, Halsey (queen), Selena Gomez’s new album, 1989, etc)

      • King Mark111 /.\ November 27, 2015

        But even if that was true, even hood rats is a bigger demographic then these hipsters/ex emos. Don’t they off themselves by the numbers every year? lol
        .
        Yet all those girls sell albums, Del Flop don’t. And for you to comment on Aaluyah shows that YOU care. So go ahead and take your nightly lil walk to the graveyard and cry about it there.

      • Rosie November 27, 2015

        cackling at you using a “Lana stans suicidal!!!1” joke as a drag in November 2015
        While Aaliyah is actually dead.
        Those hipsters/ex-emos sure do give Lana those sold-out arena shows though (bombing to hell and back yet charging more per ticket than the ANTiCHRIST World Tour kii).

  21. Tyler Makiavelli November 27, 2015

    Bye Rihannna! RIP Anti kiii * holds up peace sign and fades out. *

    • King Mark111 /.\ November 27, 2015

      She’s always on your mind. lol, how sad that the ones that say no one is checking for ANTi, are the main one’s checking for ANTi. lol

  22. sour grape November 27, 2015

    congrats. but… hey… adele got a way larger audience in the first place. 😉

  23. stan November 27, 2015

    “To put into context, Texas (as well as 10 other US states) are bigger than the UK in size. And yet, Ms. Adkins is shifting numbers in Britain (first week) that few American acts are managing to sell total in the US.”

    errr… if you’re talking about geographic area, sure. but population wise, texas is around 27 million, and uk is around 60.

    • JOHNVIDAL November 28, 2015

      Yes that comparison was absurd LOL He had it so easy to say the USA have a way bigger population than the UK and still Adele sold as much in the UK first week as the biggest artists of the moment do in the USA. But no, he had to go all the way thick 🙂

  24. Chile, leave my weave at the door and don’t steal it like those broke ass barb stans November 27, 2015

    I need her to do a song with Ci Ci pronto. Also, since Missy’s comeback has been welcomed with such a warm response, I need Misdemeanor to snatch her back in the studio again to create some more of that magic. That way Ci Ci can get back on top through a feature. I don’t even care how she gets back on top again. I just want her to do it any way she can.

    • King Mark111 /.\ November 27, 2015

      I’m sorry, but even Ciara knows that she’s done. The girl never had it, sorry man.

      • Chile, leave my weave at the door and don’t steal it like those broke ass barb stans November 27, 2015

        Mark, you and I BOTH know that with Missy’s recent return all Ci needs is a hot feature with her. Did you not see what number “Where They From” ascended to on the Hot 100 during its second week? Missy didn’t have to perform “Lose Control” during her Superbowl set, but she did anyway and the crowd WENT CRAZY! Hopefully, Missy will leave Till alone and work with Ci to create another “Lose Control” to revive Ciara a little bit. All it takes it ONE HIT! JUST ONE!

  25. Quinton251 aka Lil Wayne Stan November 27, 2015

    Congrats to her, i wonder if anybody will break her record?

  26. King Mark111 /.\ November 27, 2015

    Haters were all saying that Rihanna should had been worried, but Adele came for everyone in music, now, new and old. She beat Beyonce’s iTune record, Britney’s highest selling in a week, Whitney’s biggest single to chart in a week, Nsync bissgest opening EVER, Dion’s Canada’s sales in a week, UK’s biggest opening. Hurricane is the word. I can’t get into her albums, but her radio singles are good. And at the end, she’s humble, yet at the same time don’t take any ish. Go ahead and call her Queen Of Pop because she killed everyone in the GAME. I don’t want to hear “Music don’t sell like it did X amount of years ago”. I don’t want to see the word Queen anywhere near Beyonce’s name because her track record is baisc and when you put all the artist in history records on the table, Beyonce is not #1 in anything.

    • Chile, leave my weave at the door and don’t steal it like those broke ass barb stans November 27, 2015

      I can’t freaking wait until the pre-sale for the Anti Tour gets here. What show(s) are you gonna go to, Mark?

      • King Mark111 /.\ November 27, 2015

        Chi town is the closest to me, but I ain’t effing with Chiraq. I’ll have to check for the next city. lol

      • Chile, leave my weave at the door and don’t steal it like those broke ass barb stans November 27, 2015

        OMG! So many people on twitter said the same thing about IGNORING the chiraq show. She might have to cancel it due to low ticket sales, but I doubt she wants to be there anyway. You should come to the Atlanta show if you’re free by then.

    • HailBeysus November 27, 2015

      Queen Bey knows you love her and she’ll continue to scan multiple platinum albums regardless of Adele’s numbers. Why don’t you compare Rihanna to Adele?? I mean isn’t she the 8th best selling artist??? Why ain’t she selling albums like adele???

      • King Mark111 /.\ November 27, 2015

        We don’t call Rihanna a Queen, We don’t say that Rihanna is the best in the game. Rihanna is not on Sony records, so why? Beyonce and Adele are label mates, plus MC was on Sony and sold a lot. Why compared to so many other Sony acts, Beyonce stats are basic, yet her stans say that she’s the Queen of music, with nothing to so. She will be the Tina of this gen, great but no one will remember her as they do Dianna, Aretha and Janet. Plus her face is not holding up anymore in her mid 30’s, but that’s for another day.

    • HailBeysus November 27, 2015

      Kiii the lies yu spill!! i have seen multiple Rihanna stans call her Queen. P.S when has anyone or music outlets said Beyonce sells like Mariah, Janet or Madonna??? She’s compared to Michael Jackson as a performer! Denie it all you want but Beyonce gives you the closets thing to the legendary energy of Tina Turner. Her praise and Queen of music comes from 5 #1 albums, Most nominated woman in grammys that still matter to the music world regardless of what you say. Is argued as being the best live entertainer of today. Has vocals for days that shits on almost all Main Pop acts today. 18 years of relevancy in music. Over 152 million records sold, was dubbed the top selling female artist of the 00’s by numerous musical outlets (over 60 RIAA certifications), gave us one of the greatest music videos of all time (when will Aaliyah or Rihanna), created the first major dance craze of the 21st century. This whole she can’t push albums is stupid because Queen Beys status didn’t just come from albums sales if came from a career that your favs can’t touch! Call me when Aaliyah or Rihanna can open up a song with a cold 18 note rift like Bey did in countdown!

      • Chile, leave my weave at the door and don’t steal it like those broke ass barb stans November 27, 2015

        Wait, wasn’t “Crank That Soulja Boy” the first POPULAR dance craze of the 2000s? That single was #1 on the Hot 100 for more than a month too.

      • HailBeysus November 28, 2015

        @Chile, leave my weave at the door and don’t steal it like those broke ass barb stans KIII I LIVE FOR YOUR USERNAME LMAO!!! But anyway. Nope That song didn’t even come close to charting in as many countries as Single Ladies did lol! Single Ladies is also credited as being the first dance craze of the internet.

      • Chile, leave my weave at the door and don’t steal it like those broke ass barb stans November 28, 2015

        Thanks for clarifying that up for me. Every white man got on video in a leotard and tights to copy that black woman. It was pandemonium indeed. By the way, I live for your username too. For some reason I keep thinking of “Halo” whenever I see it.

  27. Chile, leave my weave at the door and don’t steal it like those broke ass barb stans November 27, 2015

    @ Molly & Annalise (the real one please), wouldn’t you say that “Send My Love” resembles Bastille’s “Pompeii” a little bit? Maybe it’s just me, but I definitely think both songs share many similarities.

    • Rosie November 27, 2015

      Except Bastille sucks and were a bigger fad than Lana (don’t @ me, I still stan)
      The way no one cares about them anymore. What’s up with all these UK acts literally flopping into oblivion after one era?

      • Rosie November 27, 2015

        For real though it’s only the shitty ones. Bastille is trying to start a new era but no one cares and their next album will hopefully bomb. Also praying Catfish & the Bottlemen (aka 2006 Arctic Monkeys tribute band) goes that route also.

      • Chile, leave my weave at the door and don’t steal it like those broke ass barb stans November 27, 2015

        Say it!!!! I LOVE Bastille, but you told nothing but the truth. Did you know Rih has a song called “Say It”? It’s Caribbean-influenced. Anyway, sorry for the digression, but Lana WILL have a comeback. Remember, she’s touring ARENAS now. She’s no longer a theater act. She’s graduated and proved her power. Shoot, if Gaga can be serious about having a MAJOR comeback from her sat tragedy and go back to her roots (Red One), then Lana’s fine as long as she stays focused and promotes like a slave. By the way, just between me and you, Lana PISSED ME THE HELL OFF when she had her DJ start off “National Anthem”. It’s not really that important, but I really just wanted her to say the opening excerpt whenever she performed it live on that tour.

      • Rosie November 27, 2015

        It’s less of Lana actually being “over” than her refusing to get her lazy ass up and promote.
        Honeymoon received literally NO promo. She just sent the album to Interscope, released two videos and the album was finished. And I thought UV was bad with that. She really does want to be low-key. But like you said, she can still sell out 15-20K capacity venues like she did this summer with no music out. And she still draws massive crowds at festivals (she was billed way too low when she played Coachella in 2014, reports said she had one of the biggest crowds of the entire thing).
        Honeymoon will sell the same as Florence’s album (around 800k-900K WW) when it’s all said and done, so that’s acceptable for someone with absolutely no radio friendly hits or promotion.

    • AnnaliseKeatingsNewWig November 28, 2015

      Hey hun! I see the similarities for sure, I definitely prefer Adeles song to theirs. Bastille have some alright songs (like the one they did with Grades), but like Rosie said I don’t see their music travelling overseas again. I also see what you mean about ‘Say it’, but what really was the highlight for me was ‘Breakin Dishes’ which was a mvthafvckin ANTHEM! that whole line she sang about burning her boyfriends clothes reminded me of Left-Eye and Andre.
      ____
      Also thank you for holding me down. This thing is a coward and only comments when it KNOWS i’m not around, but i’m glad everyone else scalps it for me. XO

      • Chile, leave my weave at the door and don’t steal it like those broke ass barb stans November 28, 2015

        Absolutely, hun! We gotta hold each other down on this website because h*** keep coming from left and right to sever our bond. I also think that “Breakin’ Dishes” was exactly what you said. “Sell Me Candy” is a cute, s*** song too.

  28. Florida Evans November 27, 2015

    Sales wise, NO ONE is on this level. Period. On this front, she has no rivals. This is no question.

    But, let’s talk about the music. Is it great, really? I would argue no. She has some greats songs but doesn’t have one great album.

    I just wish the quality of her work matched her commercial success. It just doesn’t. It would be amazing if it did.

    Amy’s “Love Is Losing Game” is better than Adele’s entire discography. But I’ll continue to pay attention to her because I do like her.

    • King Mark111 /.\ November 27, 2015

      YES Amy paved the way for adele and all these UK artist as of late, but I’m sick of people always having to compare an artist to another one. Let this girl be. I’m not a fan, but I’m not hating on this girl. I’m glad that these records are broken by a stand up woman Vs an old boyband and a pop tart.
      .
      With that said, I’m mad and shocked that Justin Bitcher sold over 500K in a week. He seem to cross over to adult pretty well I guess, but the songs I heard sounds as teen as One Direction.

      • Florida Evans November 27, 2015

        You’re right about making comparisons. I usually avoid doing that but it’s just so frustrating to see the real genius songwriter like Amy come out of the UK but the face of it becomes Adele. I understand how that happens. Adele is much more palatable to the general public, etc…but Amy’s artistry just towers of her. Regardless, I like Adele. I really do. I just hope she produces one album in her career that makes me LOVE her work.

      • HailBeysus November 27, 2015

        Kii the IRONY of that comment! When your pressed ass is always comparing Beyonce to Adele. Like you did just a little ago in this post lmfao!

    • Chile, leave my weave at the door and don’t steal it like those broke ass barb stans November 27, 2015

      Why do people keep paying dust to “Tears Dry on Their Own” and “Me and Mr. Jones”? Those are two of the top 5 best songs she’s ever written and recorded.

      • Florida Evans November 27, 2015

        Those two songs are brilliant. I love them. “Love Is A Losing Game” is a NOBEL, Pulitzer level song. lol! It just destroys me everytime I hear it. It’s, literally, perfect.

      • Chile, leave my weave at the door and don’t steal it like those broke ass barb stans November 27, 2015

        I love your avi, by the way. Did you wear your hair like that for Thanksgiving? It’s cute!

  29. Chile, leave my weave at the door and don’t steal it like those broke ass barb stans November 27, 2015

    I can imagine the steam coming out of “America’s little favorite skinny sweetheart” ears right now. I honestly wouldn’t be surprised if Ms. Swift goes back to country next era just to TRY to reach diamond this go around.

    • Mary Mary Why You Bugging November 27, 2015

      You know she’s seething. LOL! That “awww shucks, who ME?! I’m just the relatable girl next door” schtick is running out.

      If people believe that 1989 is the best that pop has to offer, we are in some serious trouble.

      • Rosie November 27, 2015

        Adele is actually doing her quirky “relatable” thing better. Have you seen her tour announcement/BBC special?
        Cackling

    • King Mark111 /.\ November 27, 2015

      Taylor selling 1 million in a week for the 3rd time in a row is a feat and record of it’s own. So she still wins as well, plus she sold 5 million and 8 million WW. She’s good, again, no need to compare these artist.

      • Chile, leave my weave at the door and don’t steal it like those broke ass barb stans November 27, 2015

        I just can’t believe that “Fearless” is FREAKING 7x PLATINUM! That’s really scary when you think about it. What if it becomes diamond within the next five years?

  30. God November 27, 2015

    White woman.

    • Chile, leave my weave at the door and don’t steal it like those broke ass barb stans November 27, 2015

      Uh uh! That’s not why she succeeded so much. Look at Bey, Ci, Rih, Nicki, and Rih. All of these women are black and proud (although my mother swears up and down that Ciara is mixed) and have a triple-platinum selling album. Most artists, especially white ones, would be lucky to even see those numbers for total worldwide sales. So, it’s not because she’s a white woman, but because her demographic is endless, unlimited, and universal.

    Mark acting as if Adele didn’t outsell Unapologetic and all it had a mini tour before it dropped. Also Beyonce still holds her iTunes record b****

  32. LB November 27, 2015

    OMG no one will ever beat this record, mind blowing. I am not buying this album until it hits Spotify and I hear it for myself but this is insane.

    • Chile, leave my weave at the door and don’t steal it like those broke ass barb stans November 28, 2015

      Well, prepare yourself for “I Miss You”. It’s hard hitting, and unpredictable. It’ll shock the hell out of you once the beat drops. Also, keep an open ear for “Send My Love”. Be as open as possible with those two songs in particular.

  33. LB November 27, 2015

    So does this mean Giselle is going for 4closure 2.0 after seeing Adele’s sales?

    We all know 4closure was an attempt at ripping off 21, and then when that didn’t work, she got Talk That Talk and Unapologetic and made Self Titled.

    What’s the next trick…sorry gimmick Giselle?

    • MsYonce November 27, 2015

      Shouldnt you be worrying about Anti? Dont you have doors to unlock in that antidiary s***?

    • MsYonce November 27, 2015

      @LB BEYONCE sound nothing like TTT and Unapologetic they’re completely different. I knew you were stupid but this takes the cake lmaooo

      • LB November 27, 2015

        Get your ears checked.

      • HailBeysus November 27, 2015

        Kii LB is mental and really trying to reach hahahaha Beyonce’s fifth album was far more experimental than anything rihanna has ever put out!! Sit down and stop showing us the side effects of your drug addict mother dropping you on your head as an infant!

      • Chile, leave my weave at the door and don’t steal it like those broke ass barb stans November 28, 2015

        @HailBeysus, can people please stop pretending like Rhianna didn’t serve and write “Rated R”? It’s getting tired now and EVERYONE’S MAMA knows that that album is FREAKING EXPERIMENTAL, EMOTIONALLY-VULNERBLE, AND WELL-ROUNDED. Let’s give Rih some credit for channelling her emotions well enough to provide a critically-acclaimed classic like that.

    • Rosie November 27, 2015

      This reach is expected from you at this point, but you could’ve at least made this one somewhat believable.
      21 and 4 were released within months of each other. Everyone with common sense would assume 4 was likely near completion when 21 came out, but it’s obvious you lack that.

      • MsYonce November 27, 2015

        Lmao ikr he’s so dumb

  34. MsYonce November 27, 2015

    I’m just wondering why the navy is worrying about Beyonce when Rihanna is suppose to be dropping an album. I mean she asked the AMA’S to promote that Antidiary all during the show, then during Empire not to mention she made a whole website to build hype. Y’all claim she’s the New Queen Of Pop yet she’s negotiating with Billboard to make free albums count as sales. Hmm I’m just wondering why y’all so worried about Beyonce..

  35. MsYonce November 27, 2015

    @Lb My ears are fine! Tell me does We Found Love, Where have you been, birthday cake, stay, what now, Diamonds, jump sound like anything on BEYONCE? If so tell me plz?

  36. DIABETES UNBOTHERED November 27, 2015

    I hate when sum call adele supporters band waggon… i been a casual listener since chasing pavements. This is very deserving… I havent heard the whole thing but All i ask and hello and a select few others are exceptional… i didnt want to admit it but ADELE IS THE NEW QUEEN… srry Bey but #2 is way better than any other black artist can say in todays climate.

    • YEAH I SAID IT….. November 28, 2015

      Girl you’re giving Gabourey Sidibe teas, seriously though, please take care of yourself.

  37. cocobutta November 27, 2015

    THATS HUGE!!!

    The Adelecalypse will not be replicated.

    Congrats to a very talented and down to earth lady ? ? ?

  38. DIABETES UNBOTHERED November 27, 2015

    Adele truly demonstrated what the industry has been needing for years and that was to create a blueprint for what it takes to sell records massively in 21st century and it is 1. Be overweight and white. (The only pretenciuos requirment) 2. Have a big voice 3. Great music 4. Build aticipation 5 solid creditability and reputation and most important Fanbase = album sales.

  39. DIABETES UNBOTHERED November 27, 2015

    Cant really compare beys sells to higher selling white artist like taylor justin or adele… self titled was self titled lol underpromoted no nonurban hits overpriced shes black lol the list goes on. It is fair to compare to una tho lol thats the real flop!

  40. Adele’s Husband November 28, 2015

    This is incredible but I still think 21 is more excellent than 25. He Won’t Go, Turning Table and Don’t u remember are great than 25. Hello is good though

  41. Barb-wire November 28, 2015

    Gratz Del’s!!

  42. YEAH I SAID IT….. November 28, 2015

    Congrats to Adele. Now the idiocy on this post is too much, first of all, >>>>Beyonce is called the Queen “And not just by her fans” because she’s the WHOLE PACKAGE, enough said.<<<<

  43. ben November 28, 2015

    texas is bigger in size yes ! not in population ! UK ha more than twice the population of texas !

  44. Dossome November 28, 2015

    well,looking at the budget that went into marketing and shipments,these numbers are expected…like having a film grossing a billion dollars from a 300m dollar budget.The demand is there alright but the success of this album was predetermined as well

  45. AnnaliseKeatingsNewWig November 28, 2015

    !!!!!!!!!!!! Oh gosh, someone clearly has a chemical imbalance. Its created a timetable to study me too! Gosh I’m so honoured. @Rihoēvy take some advice from King Bob Marley and emancipate yourself from mental slavery… I’m tired of whipping you tbh!

  46. Taylor swifts number 1 fan!! November 28, 2015

    Awesome
    Taylor swifts album has sold, 28,700 this week in the states, in her 57th week out, and has now sold over 8.5 million WW

  47. What now November 28, 2015

    I knew this was going to happen! Slay a bit sis. I LOVE the album.

  48. .:: Centurion ::. November 28, 2015

    When will Beyonce? The hive speak so highly of it, but when will it ever do these numbers? The jokes truly write themselves. 😆

  49. .:: Centurion ::. November 28, 2015

    Beyonce can’t sell past 5 million or get a hit record or get a #1 hit for phucksakes, oh but the flop bîatch is called Queen? LMFAO! I’ll say it again: the jokes write themselves. 😆

  50. Jay November 28, 2015

    I really didn’t think it would happen, I honestly didn’t, but b****….let me take several seats cause honey MS. ADELE LAURIE BLUE ADKINS TOOK OFF 4YRS, PLAYED THE ROLE OF MOTHER, GAVE US A 30 SEC TV SNIPPET, DROPPED US WITH HELLO & DONE SNATCHED THE CHARTS!!! OVER 3MIL ALBUMS SOLD?!! Nobody and I mean nobody will top that. If someone does, I PRAY I am alive to see it happen. 3+mil in the first WEEK?! Adele will honorably go down as a record-breaking legend.

    My ass is still trying to get past the song “Remedy”. The chords on that piano & the melody of the song just tugged at my heart & I can’t move past it.

  51. Courtney November 28, 2015

    the US numbers are only an estimate Billboard doesn’t announce the official numbers until Sunday November 29th. 25 obliterated N’Sync’s record by over a million copies with streaming included

  52. Amanda D. November 29, 2015

    I’m not gonna jump on the bandwagon and, call this girl the “new Queen” of anything. She’s pretty f****** boring and, hearing her makes me appreciate Whitney’s old music more. I’m not impressed with this girl or the hype surrounding her. Give me GOOD MUSIC – NOT HYPE!!! The last white girl that caused this much “mass hysteria” here in the US was Lady Gaga and, the whites over-hyped her too up to the point to where she’s become so f****** overexposed that she can’t even give her albums away now. And, this chick will suffer the same fate (especially somebody so overrated and over-hyped like this).

  53. Ziggy Stardust November 30, 2015

    Well, damn, Adele! This woman is not playing! Even Michael Jackson has never sold a little over 3 million copies in his first week for any of his albums. And, he has the, “greatest album of all time”. I don’t think anyone will be able to beat this record. This is crazy! So, I don’t want to hear, “People don’t buy albums like they used to.” B*******! If this woman can sell over 3 million albums, then that means people are still willing to buy and not illegally download, etc. If the music is good and it resonates with people, then they will go out and buy it. Plain and simple. If other CD’s are not selling, then it’s possible that the music is just not good. If people like what they hear, believe me, NOTHING will stop them from buying it. Congrats to Adele!
