Adele sets a New Sales Record for 2021
Adele’s new album 30, which was released three days ago, has already had the best sales week of 2021.
The Grammy-winning singer released her new album 30 on Friday (November 19), and it quickly became the year’s best-selling album by Sunday.
Taylor Swift’s Evermore, which was released in 2020 but sold 462,000 copies in 2021, was the previous album to hold the title.
Adele’s album 30, according to Billboard, has already sold over 500,000 copies in just three days.
Adele’s 30 holds the record for the highest individual sales week of 2021. This in addition to being the best-selling album of the year. Taylor’s Red (Taylor’s Version) held the previous record with 369,000 copies sold in its first week.
With streaming included, 30 has over 575,000 equivalent album units in the United States.
Next week, the album will almost certainly launch at number one on the Billboard 200 chart. It will almost certainly be the year’s biggest debut week in terms of overall equivalent album units.
