Every time the clock ticks it seems Adele sells another million records. She did it again. Adele is set to sell another million albums in a week. All in all, Adele’s ’25’ could sell near 7 million copies by years end.
In a recent interview with Time Magazine, Adele says she quit social media in order to spend time writing a great album.
“How am I supposed to write a real record if I’m waiting for half a million likes on a #$%^! photo? That ain’t real”
Nearing 7 million albums sold in a quick short weeks, Adele is astonished with her recent success in America:
“I’m not even from America.” Maybe they think I’m related to the Queen. Americans are obsessed with the royal family.”
Other artists may heed Adele’s advice. Instead of spending hours tweeting, consider spending hours creating a real album.
Adele on YouTube, Adele on the Facebook news feed, Adele on top of Google searches, Adele on TV, Adele trending on Twitter, and Adele sells out tour. It’s Adele EVERYWHERE. Is Adele’s presence becoming overbearing? It doesn’t matter, she isn’t going anywhere, for at least a while.
As we speak, Adele is nearing 6 million copies of her latest ’25’. Miraculously, the album is selling near a million a week. Not the singles, but the entire album. No doubt, Adele will top the Forbes rich list in 2016. This a season that Adele will always remember. The season that Adele ruled the world.
The UK songstress has another smash on her hands with the latest concert special “Live from New York City” which garnered 11 million viewers. It saw the biggest audience for any pop star special in over a decade. The Eagles and Cher were the last artists to drive that magnitude of viewership. Adele’s demographic was in the 18-49 age group. Being only 27, and topping the young musicians rich list, Adele has accomplished a lot in a quick short years.
Adele’s ’25’ blew past 3 million copies and now has topped 4 million in less than 2 weeks. Adele made music history with the highest first week sales since tracking music sales.
