Adele’s colossal growth continues, with industry prognosticators now calling for her 25 (XL/Columbia) to do somewhere between 7.2m and 7.7m by year’s end. How do we get there? Consult this handy week-by-week projection for the last of 2015. Bear in mind: This is a conservative estimate.
Week 47 – 3.4m

Week 49 – 600k
Week 50 – 800k
Week 51 – 1m
Week 52 – 500k
