Adele at No. 1 moves more than 750,000 albums on The Billboard 200
Adele’s “21” didn’t just soar past the 500,000 sales mark after the British singer’s multiple Grammy wins: it neared three-quarters of a million in sales. At 21 weeks at the No.1 spot on The Billboard 200, it’s hard to imagine there’s still that many people left who hadn’t bought the Academy’s pick for Album of the year. But sales jumped 207% over last week’s sum for Adele to clinch the top spot yet again. Additionally, her Columbia debut “19” also climbs No. 9 to No. 4 with 87,000 copies (+144%).
Sales are up 13% compared to last week and up 7% compared to the same week last year. Sales are up 4% so far for the year.
