Sales: Adele’s new album 30 had the biggest opening week of any record released in 2021, but it was also 75 per cent less than her previous album’s first week of release
Although Adele has the best opening week for any album this year, it is still less than the 2.5 million she sold when the album was first released in November 2015.
25 Adele’s album was Adele’s third. It sold a staggering 18,000,000 copies globally in the first year.
This could be partly due to the decline in album sales over the past several years, as more listeners switch to streaming.

It comes after Adele stated that she is a ‘dying breed’ in the music industry, in a chat that came shortly before she made ‘crossover chart history’ with her comeback song Easy On Me.
She spoke out about her being in “such a rare place in culture”, acknowledging Drake and other superstars were among the very few to have made their name before streaming.
On Friday, Adele’s Easy on Me duet featuring Chris Stapleton was featured on Country Airplay. It had made its mainstream debut on Billboard Hot 100. The move meant that she was referred to as an artist who transcends genres.
Adele stated that she was a dying breed while speaking on CBC Radio’s q. We were about 10 people. It was about 10 of us.

After the song was over, the hitmaker suggested that social media had played an important role in the failure to create a lasting impact on the music business in modern times.
Adele stated, “We came out prior to streaming. Before all social media frenzy, we came out “You have five seconds to entertain, otherwise get out.”
“We were in the same industry as our parents, but we did not have the opportunity to succeed. [be part of].’
The singer explained that their “rarified” status in business played a major role in their friendship and said she could confide in In My Feelings’ hitmaker in a manner she cannot with other up-and-coming musicians.
Adele said: ‘Having access to someone else that knows exactly what it’s like to be in a certain position sometimes…
Record: While this gives Adele the biggest opening week of any album of the year, it’s a drop from the 3.8 million copies she sold of 25 when it was released in November 2015
It’s like, “Can’t talk to my friends about it!” They’re like, “Can’t relate!” They just turn off.
“I have something to say” [Drake]And he won’t judge me for that, you know. It’s great to be able to access someone who is in the same place as me. [me]It is the greatest gift I have received in my career.”
Before her recent chat, Adele revealed that her single Easy on Me (with Chris Stapleton) had been a crossover hit.
Country Airplay has now aired the track 30 from her fourth studio album, which was released just weeks before its mainstream debut at the Billboard Hot 100. It is a crossover hit for the artist.
