The wait is over: Adele‘s 25 is finally here, but what will its lasting legacy be?
Sources predicted to Billboard that 25 could sell 2.5 million units (1.5 million physical albums and 1 million downloads), which would beat *NSYNC‘s record for a single week (the 2000 album No Strings Attached holds the current record with 2.415 million sold).
Comparisons aside, Adele’s album stands a chance of being a multi-week success. Could it debut with more than a million sold and then sell at least another million in any week after that? It’s highly likely 25 will easily debut at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 albums chart, but how many weeks will she reign?
Below are some of the biggest burning questions around 25. It’s time to put your prognostication skills to the test — vote now!
