Adele is once again making history with her highly anticipated album "30." In an industry dominated by streaming, it is truly remarkable that Adele's album has sold over a million copies in the United States in just a few weeks. The last artist to achieve this feat was Taylor Swift with her album "folklore," released in July 2020.
According to Billboard, "30" reached the million-sales milestone in less than a month. The album, flew off the shelves with 692,000 copies sold in its first week released. Fans couldn't get enough and rushed to purchase an additional 225,000 copies during the following week.
It's important to note that it took Taylor Swift's "folklore" almost three months to sell the same number of copies. This is a testament to the difficulty artists face in selling albums in the streaming era.
Billboard also mentioned that only three other albums have achieved such impressive sales since 2019. These include the soundtrack to Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper's "A Star Is Born," Harry Styles' "Fine Line," and Billie Eilish's debut album "WHEN WE ALL FALL ASLEEP, WHERE DO WE GO?"
Adele's success is a testament to her incredible talent and the loyal fanbase she has cultivated over the years. Her captivating voice and heartfelt lyrics have resonated with millions of people around the world. It's no wonder that her album "30" continues to break records and capture the hearts of fans everywhere.
In a world dominated by streaming, it's refreshing to see an artist like Adele achieving such remarkable sales. Her success serves as a reminder of the power of music and the impact it can have on people's lives. Adele's "30" is not just an album, it's a cultural phenomenon that will be remembered for years to come.
