Adele’s 25 continues to surge, up 25% from Tuesday. Forecasts now put the megastar’s new set at 3.5 million for her debut week—leaving prior sales records in the dust—and possibly as much as 6m for the season.
The latter benchmark would mean she was more than halfway to the RTD sales on 2011’s 21, which happens to be #5 at iTunes as of this writing (25 remains at #1, of course, as does “Hello” on the singles side).
Will Target alone, with its exclusive deluxe CD edition of the album, move as much as 900k this week? Hold onto your turkeys and stay tuned.
