Adele's '25' Album Could Top N'Sync for Best First Week Ever

Adele's '25' Album Could Top N'Sync for Best First Week Ever

Adele steps out of her New York City hotel bundled up in all black on Tuesday (November 17), the day after her Radio City Music Hall concert.

The 27-year-old British singer played to a sold-out, star-studded crowd at the concert, including Donald Trump, Bradley Cooper and his girlfriend Irina Shayk, and Saturday Night Live alums Tina Fey and Amy Poehler.

Adele‘s new album 25 will be released in stores this Friday and there are reports that it could top N’Sync to achieve the best first week album sales of all time. There’s a possibility that the album sells 2.5 million copies in the first week alone and it’s being predicted that 4 million copies are sold before the end of the year, according to Billboard.

    What is expected and what happens are two different things. She will likely be very disappointed in the sales.

  • Caitlin

    Ugh I don’t like when people spell *Nsync like N’Sync..It’s *Nsync!

  • Arx

    I like Adele but seriously who’s buying her albums? Every artist in the industry is struggling but she sells more albums in a week than most do in a year. Good for her but I find it strange.

    I’m tired of sales. Does it matter? We all heard leaked album, it’s not the best album of the world, not the best Adele album.

  • http://notly.ru/ Mapгapитa Бaбoвниковa

    I was disappointed in anticipated songs.

  • Shenanigans

    where is it leaked?

  • devvv

    I don’t know about 2.5 mil, but I highly doubt she’ll be disappointed. The first single alone was record breaking. Adele caters to nearly every possible market (all ages/races/genres). She’s not just selling the younger pop crowd like Taylor Swift and Justin Bieber or the R&B/rap crowd like Beyonce or Drake. She literally has everyone anticipating this album.

    some people support her .. that’s all …

  • suk bin

    Yes it matters! Taylor Swift has reached an Elvis or Mike Jackson level of success! Something that Drake or Bieber may never do! Consecutively sell One Million in one week, with three albums in a row! But to sell 2.5 million albums in a week, is downright astonishing, if true! Its so astonishing, I refuse to believe it, until I see it!

    What? Three albums by Taylor sold one million in one week? Why was it such a big deal when 1989 did that? And of course 1989 sold one million in one week when she removed all her music from Spotify.

  • Legendary Trolly

    Because it was her THIRD time doing it! She did it two albums in a row and no one expected that to keep going! 1989 was expected to sell 700k, and it just kept selling!

    I buy her albums because you know they’ll end up on your most played list and are going to be listened to many times for years and years to come. Unlike the flavor of the week or month that comes and goes–listen to it twice and never again. I listen to a track on 21 every week or so for the past 4 years. Plus the whole albums is incredible–very few if any fillers. Hope 25 is the same!

  • toastie postie

    I know, I’m buying it. Love her. Hope she comes to my area.

    People buys album without listening. It’s marketing achievement, not musical.

  • Legendary Trolly

    Nah fam, we cant sit up here and act like its all hype! Taylor is a GENUIS Songwriter and we have to give credit! Mike Jackson wasnt a marketing achievement! But we gonna give him credit for his talent, and wont give Taylor credit for hers? Tupac has never sold a million in one week! The most he sold, was 600k, but within two months, that same album was a whopping FIVE times platinum, which is astonishing!

  • http://notly.ru/ Mapгapитa Бaбoвниковa

    That’s all subjective opinion of a fan.
    The facts is that people don’t buy albums for composing talents, there is 10 000 more talented composers than any in Billboard 200 in USA only and no one buys their albums. There is a millions of fans who believe Selena Gomez writes her songs. And fact is Taylor pays millions of dollars to her marketing team, and pays millions to her co-writers. Would she do that if she could sell albums without better composers as Max Martin and aggressive marketing? She knows she wont.

  • Legendary Trolly

    Im not a fan of Taylor Lol Im a 29yr old black man who drives big’ol cadillacs with flashy rims, and TV’s in the headrest Lol People actually DO buy albums for composing talents! Their is NOT 10 000 more talented composers! You must be talking about undiscovered acts! Its not like Taylor is merely successful! She’s LEGENDARY at this point! We’re talking about Elvis, Mike Jackson etc! You dont get to those types of level just from marketing and hype! You MUST have a GREAT amount of talent to get to that level! Taylor is BEYOND successful at this point! NO one believes Selena writes her own songs, and your crazy to compare her to Taylor Lol. Taylor is a child prodigy when it comes to music, playing instruments, and writing HER OWN music! Selena does NOT do numbers like Taylor! Selena is someone we can put in the hype catagory! But Selena would need some special things to do what Taylor does, because only legends get to that level! Taylor has a marketing team like ALL superstars, but why wont Beyonce’s marketing team get her a million albums in one week? How about Jay Z’s? If Taylor put out an album over night, with no promotion, it will still sell a million, with no marketing! You just cant debate on something like this that comes once in a lifetime, and again, Im a grown man Im not jamming Taylor but I see her gifts and tools!

    They discovered — check indie labels. They just don’t want join vanity fair and create media buzz about their dirty linen as marketing teams do for every artist of major label and then sell album.

  • Legendary Trolly

    Indie artist rarely do MJ numbers dude Lol My point is, Taylor is NOT Selena Gomez! She’s a child prodigy and brilliant artist! We gotta give props when you get to that level because Beyonce will NEVER get to that level!

    I read excellent book about “child prodigy and brilliant artists” who grew up with millionaire father…

  • Legendary Trolly

    Taylor’s parent had nothing to do with her brilliant songwriting skills, which caused her to exceed to legendary levels Lol

  • http://notly.ru/ Mapгapитa Бaбoвниковa

    … except hiring genius music teachers, later famous country co-writers for every song on first album with very big check.

    it was a very big story, how can you missed it, when she said in interview that she taught herself to play guitar and learned how to write songs from her favorite artists. Then her real teachers came to media and describe how many years they teach her. then taylor sued them for false, give it back and then — OFFERED TO PAY THEM TO KEEP THEIR MOUTH SHOUT. Don’t know how the story ends but it looks they didn’t took that money and keep saying the truth.

  • http://notly.ru/ Mapгapитa Бaбoвниковa

    She uses ghost writers even for 1989. She saying there are two songs she “produced” from scratch all by herself while on technical composers databases these songs indicate real producers and co-composers. not famous. that keep them silent.

  • Legendary Trolly

    Dude you cant TEACH a person to write music Lol! The music would be HORRIBLE if you “taught” a person and later relied on them to do it themselves! Maybe someone taught her to play instruments, but thats it dude! People come out all the time and say things to tarnish you or for attention!

  • Legendary Trolly

    Not ghostwriters, CO WRITERS! People that write WITH you dude! Your sounding like a hater right now Lol

  • http://notly.ru/ Mapгapитa Бaбoвниковa

    ghostwriters are NOT mentioned in credits.

  • http://notly.ru/ Mapгapитa Бaбoвниковa

    You know, as an educated music teacher (but I never going to work for that salary), musician with 20 years of experience and 10 years of transcribing pop songs I tell you you can learn writing song.
    You know, there is even a SCHOOLS for that. “Schools of music composition”. Tove Lo and Charlie Puth attended them. Not instrument players schools.

  • Legendary Trolly

    Even if someone taught her how to right I dont see anything wrong with that! But I doubt it, because allot of naturally smart people have an ability to write poetry and learning to put it in musical form is not hard! Taylor is a smart person, and a little smarter than Beyonce!

  • Legendary Trolly

    Yea I know! She has always talked about co writers though! Nothing wrong with having co writers!

  • http://notly.ru/ Mapгapитa Бaбoвниковa

    Do you actually reading me? She did not credited ghost writers and saying it’s her who produced track which actually was produced by other boy, I forgot his name. That’s why they called GHOSTs and they really exist in modern music business machine because people like Taylor, Beyonce and Selena loves to be credited as composers when they changed two words and three notes. They all the same. Vanity fair.
    Plus. She started talking only about Max Martin and Shellback. She always pretended Liz Rose, who wrote all her first hits, isn’t exist.

  • http://notly.ru/ Mapгapитa Бaбoвниковa

    You don’t see anything wrong with lying she never took music lessons while there was a years of music lessons?

  • Legendary Trolly

    Yea its something wrong with lying, if she truely did lie! Which I would have to see both sides of the story, but that doesnt take away her talent! That just makes her look bad as a person because no one wants to be known as a liar!

  • Legendary Trolly

    A ghostwriter is a person you pay who doesnt get credited! Their not supposed to be credited because they agreed to a certain payment agreement! But I dont put her in the same lane as Selena thats absurdity Lol! Taylor has SOME skills, and she is writing this music!

  • http://notly.ru/ Mapгapитa Бaбoвниковa

    And she is a liar.

  • Legendary Trolly

    Sounds like a character flaw to me! Talent wise, I mean we have to admit that the chick is already a living legend and look at how young she is!

  • http://notly.ru/ Mapгapитa Бaбoвниковa

    Look at “living legend” of 200* years. Where are they now? Hilary Duff? Avril Lavigne?

  • Legendary Trolly

    Dude you cant come up out of your mouth and compare them to Taylor Gone somewhere!!! Hilary was a disney kid wit no talent! Disney signs all of their actors to music contracts and you sat up here and compared them to Taylor! Hillar sold a million in one week, three times in a row? Like I said earlier, you are a hater and you do an awful job of hiding it!
