ADELE’S A DOUBLE MILLIONAIRE
21 Returns to #1, Will Top Million Next Week, as 19 Passes Platinum This Week
April 6, 2011
Adele’s a double winner this week.
The U.K. songstress, with the year’s top-selling album at the Q1 pole with XL/Columbia’s 21, will see the album go over a million this week as she’ll return to the #1 spot on the HITS sales chart. Her debut album, 19, which has returned to the charts, also hit platinum territory this week. She’s a shoe-in for multiple Grammy nominations, even with fewer categories next year.
The only other candidate, the benefit album Songs For Japan, is hitting in physical format on Sony Music, but as the previously digital-only compilation is just now hitting retail, it’s still a little too early to gauge how well it will do.
