Adele Smashes Single-Week Album Sales ... In Just 3 Days

Adele's voice soars.

And so do her album sales.

Say "Hello" to the new leader in single-week album sales. Ever.

That's about 2,433,000 albums.

And she did it in three days.

Say "Bye Bye Bye" to the old leader: NSYNC.

They sold 2,416,000 million copies of "No Strings Attached" in one week in 2000, the height of the CD era.

Analysts project "25" to sell close to 3 million copies in its debut week.
