Look there’s really no need to explain every detail about who Adele is and how she’s SLAYED all your faves and sold a billion albums and is literally the best thing in the whole wide world evurrr, so stop with that expectant face. Even your Grandma knows all about how Adele’s crushed the music game this year.
The Adele train JUST WON’T STOP. EVER. And just as we thought her sales couldn’t go any higher, Adele’s ‘21‘ just sold a jaw-droppingly astronomical 399,000 copies this week in the US, her biggest sales week in ALL of it’s 44 weeks since the album’s release, taking her total album sales in the US to 5.68 million and a whopping 14 million copies worldwide! The album came in at # 2 this week on the Billboard 200 Albums Chart with Michael Buble’s ‘Christmas‘ perched at # 1 for a 5th week, selling over 467,000 copies after a major sales boost due to his Saturday Night Live performance, as well as this being Christmas week. ‘Christmas‘ is the 2nd highest selling album this year after Adele’s ‘21‘, and is set to tumble down from the # 1 spot next week while Adele returns back to # 1 for an unprecedented 14th week! Could your faves ever?? I thought so.
And you think Mizz Adelegend is in a mood to slow down after this? Hahaha!! Oh you!! Adele’s 3rd single, the incredible ‘Set Fire To The Rain’ just roared up the charts and entered the top 10 on the Billboard Hot 100 Singles Chart at # 7, and is well on the way to become her 3rd consecutive # 1 from ‘21‘. And y’all do know she’s nominated for 6 Grammy’s right? Can you even imagine what her Grammy wins will do for the album? As well as a rousing live rendition of ‘Set Fire To The Rain’ on stage? I can’t even!!
Looks like Mizz Adele’s all set to slay 2012 as well!
