A few artists have sold more than a million albums in a week, but none have done it twice on the same album ... until now. Billboard reports that Adele has broken yet another record on her quest to making the entire music industry her bitch and sold more than a million copies of 25 in the U.S. for a second consecutive week. She's the first person to have 2 million–plus-selling weeks since Nielsen began tracking sales in 1991. Her album — which sold a whopping 3.38 million in its first week, making Adele responsible for at least 42 percent of all music sold in the U.S. that week — has now sold well above the 4 million albums she was expected to hit by Christmas.
