Adele Breaks Sales Record with “25” in Record Time, Rolling in the Dough


As expected, Adele has broken the one week sales record with her album “25.” From Friday through today she’s sold more than the 2.4 million copies that NSync moved of “No Strings Attached” back in 1990.  And she still has three days left before a new sales week begins on Friday.

More than 500,000 copies of “25” have been sold at Target, which has a special edition of “25” with extra songs.
