That Adele reign simply will not let up!

On the Hot 100, the diva’s blockbuster comeback single, ‘Hello,’ greets its 6th consecutive week on the perch.  Fending off strong competition from the likes of Justin Bieber, Selena Gomez, and more, managed to outdo all of the aforementioned tunes on streaming, radio, and download tallies.  Showing strong signs of doing the same again next week, ‘Hello’s performance is only matched by that of its parent album, ’25.’

With another 500,000 sold in its third week (with some reports indicating that number will be closer to 650k), the project is #1 again – besting projected new entries by Coldplay (200,000), G-Eazy (125,000), Rick Ross (60,000), and more.  These figures will be on next week’s refreshed chart.

To date, ’25’ has sold over 5 million copies.  And, at the rate it is moving units, industry analysts predict the album – released in November 2015 – will end the year with at least 7 million sold…

    • Tyler Makiavelli December 10, 2015

      It got pushed back. Remember?

  4. King Stephy December 10, 2015

    She’s already sold 10 million copies globally. This gotta be the fastest selling album of all time within a week & month. Congrats Adele

    • King Mark111 /.\ December 10, 2015

      Right? And she actually Sold 10 million albums, unlike the Studio Vocalist that got her diamond cert off of shipments.

      • King Stephy December 11, 2015

        You’re such a dumbass. Honey, do you know how many acts back then got a Diamond LP from shipments…. But, you just single out Mariah. And, once again you calling people studio vocalist when your faves can’t even sing. But, magically sounds excellent in the studio. Also, Mariah still scored two 20+ million selling albums in REAL sales globally. Something Rihtardededed & the plane crashed THOT will never achieve. Bye.

    • Queen B & Priness Rih December 10, 2015

      Fail, good way of exposing yourself, you left your tracks in the Monica post. Like I said, you’re embarrassing yourself. You need that hug b****?

      • Code Red Is Gonna Flizzop December 10, 2015

      • Queen B & Priness Rih December 10, 2015

        I’m far from mad you pathetic bum b****, but you are, pressed and all, hence as to why you’re up and down each post trying vilify Monica’s record. I told your dirty ass before, i’m going to tell you again, go find something constructive to do with yourself, you’re an embarrassment.

      • LOL December 10, 2015

        Trolling isn’t cute hunny. By the way your avi’s don’t even match up, get those two accounts in order looooool.

  8. King Mark111 /.\ December 10, 2015

    Very impressive, 25 will be diamond by summer or at least this time next year. We know who’s the Queen of Colombia is. Poor twerking stripper and her ugly child and husband. Lol

    • Alex December 10, 2015

      Girls shut the hell up talking about an innocent child. How much is ur fave selling??? Oh that’s right, she CAN’T!

    • UMo December 10, 2015

      When Rihanna’s new album flops like HDD is predicting, will she try to divert attention from it with more interviews about the night Chris beat her behind?

    • Surprise…Dec (2013) December 11, 2015

      Yet ur cocaine snorting fave doesn’t have a RIHLEASE date. LMAO!!!!!!

  9. No favs, just here for the music December 10, 2015

  11. Itellthetruth December 10, 2015

    When will Beyonce? I thought she was Queen Bey? What Adele has sold between 2 albums is what it took Beyonce 12 years to sell as a solo act!

    • Tyler Makiavelli December 10, 2015

      B****, when will Rihanna? Oh yeah, never because she doesn’t have a release date.

  17. mingxxx December 11, 2015

    Thief beyonce has never and will never sell these #s she is thee most over exposed artist in music history…

  18. JOHNVIDAL December 11, 2015

    What a disgrace of a list except for Adele.
    Can anyone explain to me why is Justin Beiber having any relevance now? Thanks to Adele for blocking that abomination.
    And damn it Ariana Grande was never successful really but she flopped hard with her new release.
    Oh and yeah those Adele sales are too much. They don´t measure the talent at all. She´s great but these numbers should be worthy of someone out of this world, which she isn´t.

  19. SmH December 12, 2015

    Who TF is buying all these albums??? I like Adele but her voice and material are very mediocre… It’s like one long ass song… No versatility… And her being white has everything to do with these sales… Lol

  20. beyond4 December 17, 2015

    Beyonce- 617k in 3days, total sales 2.5 million in US
    Adele- 2 million in 3 days, 3.38 million in one week
    Lolbat the slayage
