Adele may add even more to the record books, as she looks to move more than 1m in second-week sales. No artist has ever sold over 1m in two consecutive weeks. We’ll be keeping an eye on the numbers every morning until the chart closes. Adele now looks set to move 7m+ by the end of 2015.
Justin Bieber, Carrie Underwood, Blake Shelton and Pentatonix appear to be the big winners from last weekend’s $6.99 sale at iTunes. The latter also sees their 2014 platinum-plus Christmas album, which was on sale for $7.99, continue to grow. That gives them two titles in the Top 10. Here’s how the chart looks at midweek.
