Adele on Track to Selling 300,000 More Copies of ’21′ This Week
Adele continues to break records and set the bar higher and higher with each passing day of her unstoppable career. She has already spent an amazing 21 weeks atop the Billboard Top 200 albums chart, and as she enters week No. 22 with her album being on the charts, she is on par to selling a whopping 300,000 copies of her latest album, ’21,’ according to industry sources.
While the charts for next week won’t be revealed until Wednesday, Feb. 29, Adele is certainly on track to spending another week at No. 1 with the award-winning album. Should she claim the slot once again, ’21′ will become the longest running album to spend time at the top of the charts since Prince and the Revolution’s did so with the ‘Purple Rain’ soundtrack, which spent 24 weeks at No. 1 throughout 1984-1985.
Adele already broke a record last week when ’21′ hit the top spot, knocking Whitney Houston’s ‘The Bodyguard’ soundtrack out for the most weeks at No. 1 ever by a woman.
Adele’s hot-selling album ’21′ recently won the top trophy of the night at this year’s Grammy Awards when she walked away with Album of the Year on Feb. 12. Following her big win, album sales for ’21′ once again spiked with 730,000 copies sold after the first full week following the award show.
