Adele is about to make even more history – if current estimates prove true.
The soul-filled singer unleashed her ’25’ album on the masses yesterday and looks set to best a record many thought insurmountable.
According to Billboard, the ‘Hello’ led set is on course to sell a mind-blowing total of 2.5 million copies in the US alone.
The figure, if achieved, will see the British megastar top the 2.4 million debut of NSYNC‘s 2000 opus ‘No Strings Attached’ and in the process earn the honor of becoming the largest first week US opening in Nielsen-era.
Its epic momentum saw the critically praised project power through the 900,000 sales mark Stateside…in its first day.
Context is of course everything, but this really is a chart thriller for the ages.
Given how some artists aren’t able to sell 900k total between multiple albums, the 2.5 million estimate really re-affirms that – at least from a sales perspective – Adele leads the pack and has, in doing do, etched her name in the history books.
What’s so warming about the preceding sentence is that the 27-year-old has done so with amazing music and a charm few can emulate.
More power to her.
Stay tuned for the latest on Adele’s game-changing release!
