Adele Sets US Sales Record As Album 25 Shifts 7.44m Copies In Just 6 Weeks


Adele’s record-breaking album 25 has scored another feat – the highest US sales during a single year in a decade.

The singer’s album unsurprisingly was the top-selling album of 2015 and spent its sixth week at number one on the year’s final chart released yesterday by Nielsen Music.

25 sold 7.44 million copies in the United States by the end of December 31 – the most in a year since R&B star Usher’s album ‘Confessions’ sold 7.98 million copies in 2004.

However, Usher’s album came out in March while Adele managed the massive year-end tally despite releasing ’25’ on November 20.

25, full of ballads that touch on heartache and childhood nostalgia, was Adele’s first album in four years and benefited from massive pent-up demand.

Her previous album, 21, was the top-selling album in the United States in both 2011 and 2012.

But 21 did not reach the sales of 25 in either year, showing the historic nature of Adele’s latest work.

25, led by the single Hello, enjoyed the biggest debut week sales on record both in the United States and Adele’s native Britain.

In a move that challenged the music industry’s conventional wisdom about the need for instant online music, Adele did not make 25 available on streaming sites and still managed the huge sales through physical copies and digital downloads.
