LOS ANGELES, California (X17online) - Adele is breaking records as her album 21 has racked up 730,000 in sales since winning six Grammy awards, including Album of the Year, Feb 12. That marks the biggest sales week for an album since Lil' Wayne's Tha Carter IV in September of 2011, which moved 964,000 copies.
According to SoundScan, Adele's 21 has the second-largest sales week for an album outside the Christmas season, only falling short of the Titanic soundtrack, which sold 848,000 in one week after debuting two months prior.
Adele is also marking her 21st week at #1 on the Billboard 200 chart.
