Adele’s album 25 has broken another record, selling more than one million albums in the United States in its second week after a massive debut, a tracking service said on Sunday.
By sustaining huge success for a second week, the British singer becomes the first artist to sell more than one million albums in two separate weeks since at least 1991, when Nielsen Music began systematic data.
25 sold 1.1 million albums in the week through Thursday, bringing to 4.49 million copies the total US sales since it came out on November 20, Nielsen Music said.
Sales could still go much higher, considering the holiday shopping season and Adele’s past performance.
Her previous album, 21, has sold more than 11 million copies in the United States since its release in 2011, topping year-end charts for two consecutive years.
