The album is predicted to sell over 1 million copies in the week ending on December 24 after previously selling 3.38 million and 1.11 million in its first and second week, respectively.
Adele’s “25” isn’t slowing down anytime soon. In fact, the album is now on track to hit another major milestone as industry forecasters have predicted it would sell over a million copies in pure album sales for the third time since it was released last month.
The British beauty’s comeback effort has become the only album since Nielsen began tracking sales in 1991 to ever sell more than one million copies in multiple weeks, Billboard notes. It previously sold 3.38 million and 1.11 million in its first and second week, respectively.
“25” is currently spending its fourth consecutive week atop Billboard 200 with 825,000 equivalent album units, including 790,000 in pure album sales, it collected last week. It has so far sold a total of 5.98 million copies in the United States alone. The exact number the set earned in the week ending December 24 will be revealed on the latest Billboard 200 chart this Sunday, December 27.
