Adele Broke U.S. Single Week Album Sales Record In Just 3 Days

adelefirstthreedays2015It’s official. Nielsen Soundscan has confirmed that Adele’s 25 has broken the single-week U.S. album sales record, and she’s done it in just 3 days. After processing the first sales reports from Monday, Nov. 23, the album has sold at least 2,433,000 units.

That sum beats the single-week record for an album since Nielsen began tracking sales in 1991. It was set by NSYNC’s No Strings Attached which debuted with 2,416,000 units sold in the week ending March 26, 2000.

Despite – or perhaps because of – the U.S. Thanksgiving holiday, Adele is now on track to sell more than 3 million albums in her debut week.
