Adele is without a doubt one of the most talented singers in the world. Thus, there is no wonder in the fact that her work is widely appreciated. According to the latest statistics, Adele’s newest album has actually managed to set a record.
About one week after the album was released, Adele sold no less than 2.8 million copies in the United States. The statistic was revealed by Nielsen Music, which also stated that the share of digital albums reached 1.45 million units. Of course, the numbers are expected to continue to grow in the coming period.
It surely is interesting to discover how much more the sales will grow, but the album already is the bestselling album of 2015. Furthermore, it has been revealed that the album is not only a success in the US, but it has registered great popularity in Canada, as well. The album sold in 261,000 in this country in about four days.
The previously week album sales record was actually held by *NSYNC. No Strings Attached released by the former boy band sold in 2.416 million copies in March 2000. Well, the success of Adele’s single featured on the new album, Hello, is even more impressive. Unexpectedly, it even managed to beat Taylor Swift’s Bad Blood song when it comes to YouTube views. Hello has 490 million views at the moment.
As imagined, Adele will be going on tour to share her music with the millions of fans she has all around the world. The star revealed her decision through a Twitter post. “Hello, it’s me, Adele,” the star shared on her social media account. “I can’t even say that anymore,” she added. She then confirmed that she is “of course coming on tour.”
Adele’s world tour is set to start at the end of February. The first concert will be held in Belfast. London, Berlin and Paris are among the cities where the star will perform. Adele’s closing concert will take place in Belgium, on June 13. It surely seems that 2016 will be a really full and busy year for the talented singer.
