Adele’s ’25’ to Sell Another Million Albums This Week
Adele is currently music's strongest and most unprecedented force. She came back from a years-long hiatus with explosive force, has already sold millions of copies of her latest album and even sent masses of people crying into their hands when they couldn't score tickets to her upcoming 2016 tour. Her list of achievements is, truly, unending.
Not content in decimating a mere one or two records, Adele has gone on to beat a number of them -- and it looks like there's no end in sight. Billboard predicts that her third album, the universally appealing 25, is set to sell yet another million copies in the United States this week. If it succeeds in doing so, it'll mark the album's third million-selling week since its release, and would make 25 the first album to ever do so.
Joking about her success she told TIME magazine, "It’s a bit ridiculous. I’m not even from America. Maybe they think I’m related to the Queen. Americans are obsessed with the royal family."
But there's more to it than that. Adele also opened up about her mass appeal, saying, "The fact that I’m not shy or embarrassed to be falling apart. Everyone falls apart, I think. A lot of people try to be brave and not shed a tear. Sometimes when you know someone else feels as s— as you do, or approaches things in a certain way just like you do, it makes you feel better about yourself. Even though my music is melancholy, there’s also joy in that. I hope I do bring joy to people’s lives, and not just sadness, but I think there’s there’s a comfort in it. But I honestly don’t know. If I knew, I would bottle it, and sell it to everyone else.”
