    30 Week Three 149,000
    Self Titled 3rd Week 310,000
    30 three wks to sell 1 million
    Self titled 10 days to sell 1 million

    {Adele is so lucky its not Bey Season yet. Adele’s Streams are low and even Adele YouTube Stream count for 30s tracks are low and Adele even has low Youtube Subscribers. Rihanna has more}

      Lmao Beyonce can’t even do adele numbers. This was a funny comment.

    • Chester December 12, 2021

      Is it possible that her “older, more sophisticated” fans actually buy music rather than stream?

      Floppy Mcfloppy burger!!!

    • Bad bunny December 12, 2021

      Beyonce is the real flop!!!

    • DioraCouture December 12, 2021

      so…ummmm … how many pure sales is beyonce selling????

    • MONICA JOHNSON December 13, 2021

      Your serious right? I like Beyonce but you know you’re full of crap. The last time Beyonce had a million copies of albums sold was in 2013. And furthermore if Adele flopped why is she the biggest selling artist this year. Adele has nothing to fear from Beyonce. Last time Adele released her last album 25 ,Beyonce moved her release date for Lemonade. I know you’re a hater but come on now 😂😂

        Because Adele is WHITE.

      • Strawberry December 13, 2021

        All this overHype & sales arehappening because Adle is WHITE. And as they have done since the Beginning of Rock Roll , they Live to Destroy Black icons like Michael Jackson & Beyonce. & Whitney Houston and overHype FAR LESS deserving Whites like Elvis The Beatles TAYLOR SWIFT & Now ADELE..

    • XYZ December 13, 2021

      Self titled is ten years old. In that time adele sold twenty times as much as Beyonce. Beys last two efforts (love is everything and lion Kind ost) werent that big of sellers. Your comparison makes no sense. Mostly, because beyonce isnt that much of big seller these days, she is a touring force and will sell out stadiums within minutes, but she wont sell a million (in physical copies) in ten days, or three months…

    Can’t wait until her dreary a$$ disappear. Seeing her reinforces all the doom & gloom within’ society.

    This is still impressive!! She’s back at #1 and could be #1 again on next weeks charts. These numbers are great considering how music is consumed these days. 1,320,000 in 3 weeks isn’t bad at all. Also, over a million in pure sales already is impressive. She may not do 25 sales, but she still selling more than your faves!!

    • Theman December 13, 2021

      Just because you don’t do your previous numbers does not mean that your sales still aren’t great. Her streams are good. But many people buy her actual music. Her album was put on streaming platforms. Not just to buy them. Beyoncé only wounded up selling 2.5 million in the states when she did that with that album. Adele is already at about 1.4 million pure sales in only three weeks. These numbers are nowhere near a flop. Barely anyone is doing these numbers.

      • Flopyonce December 13, 2021

        No one cares about Awhale. Just get over it.

      • Adele Fan December 13, 2021

        Are you commenting under the correct person? I never once mentioned that Adele is a flop. Absolutely Not !! It seems your comment needs to be directed under diabetes unbothered. These numbers are very impressive and far from a flop as I’ve stated Adele is doing great and her pure sales are outstanding!!

  5. Adelefan December 13, 2021

    My dear black people please throw away the race card when it comes to music. Nobody is putting a weapon at anyone’s head and forcing them to Buy Adele’s music. People buy her music because they love her NOT because she’s WHITE. It’s silly asf to say people are buying her music because she’s white when HIP HOP is the biggest genre out now and it’s 99% black.

    • Shayla Queen™ 👑 December 13, 2021

      They are so jealous of white people

  6. Adelefan December 13, 2021

    Someone really compared an almost 10 year album sales to a 3 week album sales. In 2013 people was still buying music NOT stream it. BEYONCE N JAY z did a joint album and it didn’t sell a million copies n it’s been years.
