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.
Adele had the biggest first week sales in the history of music selling 3.38 million copies of ‘25‘. An amazing feat considering the global music industry sales is at the historic low.
Note that 3.38 million were in album sales alone. No other album has sold this massive amount during the first week since the tracking of music purchases in 1991.
Adele’s ’25’ has sold over 3 million copies in America. What seemed impossible, Adele achieved. Her album ’25’ sold more than 3 million copies in the in less than a week. The album was predicted to sell 1 million, then 2 million, but never 3 million.
The perfect ‘thank you’ songs come from the 90’s starlets; Dido, Alanis Morissette, and Natalie Merchant. They showed their gratitude and kindness, writing timeless hooks and melodies, giving thanks. Give these songs a spin on special days such as Thanksgiving.
Just when smashing a 25 year sales record is not enough. Consider this; Adele’s ’25’is nearly ’50’ percent of total music sales this week.
Times have changed and we live in era of streaming, not purchasing. The fact that nearly 3 million will purchase ’25’ is shocking. My guess is people have been starving for an authentic artist, a real singer, and a real writer. Adele is that artist.
