Talk about seriously breaking bank. We expected it to happen, but the numbers coming in for Adele’s 3rd album, 25 are staggering.
According to a report by Billboard, the British singer has sold 2.3 million records in the first 3 days and expects to hit 2.9 million by the end of the first week. That will be a record. The previous record being NSYNC’s No Strings Attached album that sold 2.4 million back in 2000. 25 was released on November 20th, 2015 and the lead single, Hello has hit over 300 million views on YouTube.
Hello has also been covered by hundreds of artists including over 20 Nigerian artists.
