Adele's 25 passes 3m sales post-Glasto

Adele's 25 passes 3m sales post-Glasto

Adele's 25 has now sold more than three million copies, as her Saturday headline slot at Glastonbury Festival catapults the album back up the charts in today's midweeks.

25 made its streaming debut last Friday, ahead of the singer's Glasto appearance, with lifetime sales for the album standing at 2,994,383. 

Today's sale flash showed it at No.1, on sales of 10,127. That tally comprises 5,320 downloads, 4,351 physical purchases and 456 streaming sales, bringing 25's lifetime total to 3,004,510.

So, streaming hasn't helped Adele that much - she'd still be No.1 without them - but which those 456 'sales' are considerably higher than the streaming count of anyone else in the Top 10.

Spotify has weighed in with post-Glasto stats for the singer, with streams of Adele's music up 158% week-on-week on the platform (also possibly because 25 is on there now), while Amazon reports that physical sales for the singer saw a next-day increase of 1,009% after her performance.

Adele's total albums sale now stand at more than 10 million, across 19, 21 and 25. The singer's debut album, 19, is yet to cross the 3m mark itself, although 21 stands at nearly five million sales in the UK.
