Adele On Track For Biggest Album Sales Week In U.S. History

(popmusiclife) Adele's new album "25" is on track to set a new record for the biggest single sales week in US music history, according to Billboard. They report that the effort sold more than 2.3 million copies in pure album sales in its first three days, according to Nielsen Music.

"25" joins NSYNC's 2000 release, "No Strings Attached", as just the second album to sell 2 million copies in the States in a single week, and Adele's latest is expected to pass that project's 2,416,000 sales as the new all-time record holder by the end of November 23.

Music industry forecasters suggest "25" could finish the week with 2.9 million copies sold. Adele launched her third album with the lead single "Hello", an instant worldwide smash which broke streaming and download records in its opening weeks. Read more here.
