Adele's third album, 25, has become the biggest-selling album in America since her second album, 21 - though, even with the power of 'Hello', it's still nowhere near overtaking it. Tickets for the singer's forthcoming world tour were met with overwhelming demand recently, as fans scrambled to watch the singer recreate her iconic 'Someone Like You' performance live.
The much-anticipated 25 was released only last month, and has already overtaken Taylor Swfit's 1989 after selling 5.98 million copies. As NME reports, 1989 has only (!) sold 5.57 million since its release over a year ago. Try harder, Taylor.
It's still only halfway to beating its own predecessor though. 21, the album that launched Adele to superstardom back in 2011, has sold 11.37 million copies in the US.
In the UK meanwhile, 25 is already the best-selling album of the year, and reached one-million sales in a record ten days.
