(popmusiclife) Adele's "25" sold almost 1 million copies in the US via iTunes in its first day on sale. The album sold more than 900,000 copies on November 20 on its way to what is expected to be the biggest opening week in US album sales history, according to Billboard.

Music industry sources estimate Adele could sell as many as 2.5 million records this week to top the current record holder, NSYNC, whose 2000 album "No Strings Attached" debuted with 2,416,000 sold its first week.

The boy band's second release remains the only album to sell 2 million copies in the U.S. in a single week. 3.6 million physical copies of Adele's "25" were shipped to US retailers, with sources forecasting 1.5 million CD and 1 million digital download sales in its first week. Read more here.
