Congratulations to Adele!
The singer’s fourth studio album 30 has debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 after moving a staggering 839,000 equivalent album units. This has become the biggest sales week this year, Billboard reports.
It is worthy to note that the previous record of the year was 613,000 units by Drake’s Certified Lover Boy. It is also the largest sales week for any album since 2017 when Taylor Swift’s Reputation pushed over 1.2 million units. Last week, Taylor Swift’s Red (Taylor’s Version) set the record for most traditional album sales earned with 369,000.
Well, Adele has set a new record and fans are glad for her!
