It has now been confirmed by Nielsen Music that Adele’s album '25' has broken the first week sales record in Stateside/Nielsen SoundScan HISTORY!
This figure beats the first week record for an album since Nielsen began tracking sales in 1991, set by *NSYNC’s No Strings Attached. Their album debuted with 2,416,000 in the week ending March 26th, 2000. Carnage!!!!!!!!! She certainly knows how to make it rain for some that's for sure. A thunderstorm is definitely brewing.
