Adele’s ‘25’ Could Sell 4 Million Copies By Christmas

We knew it’d be big, but not this big.

According to a new report, Adele’s highly anticipated album 25 could sell four million copies by the end of the year.

Billboard reports that her record label has already shipped 3.6 million copies of the album to the U.S. and Adele is expected to have the biggest-selling opening week in Nielsen SoundScan history.

In fact, she could beat the current record, held by *NSYNC. The boy band shipped 4.2 million copies of their album No Strings Attached to the U.S. back in 2000.

An insider told the publication that Sony Music projects first week CD sales of 1.5 million, with Apple digital downloads climbing to 900,000. That could add up to 2.5 million copies sold in her debut week alone, compared to No Strings Attached’s record of 2.415 million.

By Christmas, it could sell 4 million copies total.

So, say good bye to “Bye, Bye, Bye” and “Hello” to Adele’s new potentially record-breaking album.
