'25' has already sold at least 2.433 million in slightly more than three days.
It’s confirmed. Adele’s 25 has broken the single-week U.S. album sales record, according to Nielsen Music.
After processing the first sales reports from Monday, Nov. 23, the album has already sold at least 2,433,000 in pure album sales in slightly more than three days. That sum beats the single-week record for an album since Nielsen began tracking sales in 1991, set by *NSYNC’s No Strings Attached, when it debuted with 2,416,000 in the week ending March 26, 2000.
